Bernese News 16th August 2017




MISSING BERNESE
I have few specific details at present but I have been alerted that a Bernese bitch went missing 
yesterday, Tuesday 15th August 2017 in Llanelli, Wales. The bitch is microchipped and spayed. 
Missing from Mynyddcerrig , Llanelli, Wales SA15 5BD
 
Please contact Emerald Vets Tel; 01269 841242 to report any sightings or information.

Update 6.30pm. 
The vets who circulated this alert made a mistake - the missing bitch is actually a 
Newfoundland and NOT a Bernese!

BLACKPOOL CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW 25th June 2017

This was my first CC appointment for this breed in the UK. Having been in the lucky position to 
have judged Bernese in a good number of countries I can only congratulate British breeders for 
the very good general standard this breed appears to have. There was nice depth of quality 
overall. Problem areas are the same everywhere. Fronts and front movement could be improved. 
I only saw a handful of too gaily carried tails. Eye colour was very good bar a few with too light eyes. 
My Best of Breed and Best Opposite Sex are outstanding breed representatives. I thoroughly 
enjoyed my appointment and the pleasant atmosphere in the ring.
