The Officers and committee have regretfully had to take the decision to cancel this year's Ch. Show (normally in March) and Open show due to be held in August.

We hope all will be back to normal for 2022, and meanwhile wish everyone a safe passage through these very testing times. Stay at home and cuddle your dogs!

March 2021

The Championship show has been re arranged for August as a guest of Bath Championship Show, held at Bannerdown, Bath.

The Open Show will not be held this year.

Over the new year, Lesley Horton lost a puppy whilst out walking locally, a nightmare!! However with unstinting help from friends and neighbours, from Debbie Parkes on search strategy, and I undersand from Richard Lemon on phone duty, 'Pati' is now home safe and unhurt. debbie reminds us via FB that it was 10 years ago that 2 Tibbies went missing in Nottingham, and that it took nearly 3 months to get them back home! 8 years ago 5 were stolen from an Oxfordshire home, and FB and several good friends plus Police eventually succeeded in their safe return after an agonizing few days.

More heartwarming news on this theme is that 4 of the dogs found on their own in a stable (they had been fed by someone) have been happily rehomed; 2 not far from the breeder of one of them, and 2 rehomed in East Anglia in an experienced Tibbie home which have been visited recently, and have settled in like they have lived there all their lives! let's pray for no similar incidents in 2020!


The end of last year saw Richard Lemon's Ch. Souska I Need Your Love closing in on the breed's CC record with a celebration held at Buba. 

'Magnus' is also doing well at Group level which is great to see in our breed.
