Bernese News 23rd March 2015

Derek Lawrence, husband of Susie (Desulynn) and father of David
passed away last week.
Derek was 69 and had been bravely battling cancer for two years.  Susie and Derek shared 38
years of marriage and a heartbroken, Susie emailed;
"Derek is now at peace and would have had a wonderful welcome when he crossed the rainbow

Funeral arrangements have yet to be confirmed.   
I am sure you will all join me in sending Susie, David and also all of Derek's friends our sincere
condolences for their sad and very premature loss.


The BMD Club of America Specialty is being held at Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel, Monterey,
California from 23rd to 28th March 2015 and video of each day's events can be found online;


Bernese in the News

A Bernese named Nico has found fame by helping to save swimmers in danger.  See him in a video
report here;


The Northern BMD Club Championship Show took place on Saturday at Snaith.  It was
the 30th anniversary show for the Club and Marian Scott emailed the results (Thanks Marian!)
and told me that as a memento of the event exhibitors received a bag of goodies containing
"some dog biscuits, a magnetic fridge photo frame and a pen" and I believe free tea and coffee
was provided all day.  There were also glass trophies donated by Meadowpark to be won outright
for Best in Show and Best Puppy.  

The full class results can be found further down this column.

Judge Svante Frisk from Sweden had attracted 101 exhibits giving 112 entries with 28 absentees
plus 11 entered Not For Competition.

The Dog CC, his third plus Best in Show was awarded to Bernice Mair, Carole Hartley-Mair & Gary
Dybdall's homebred Meadowpark Vertigo.  These breeders also took home the Bitch CC won by
Meadowpark Just A Dream.  Not quite 15 months old and winning her first CC, she is sired by
Tjofselinas Z Diamuz At Fortonpark x Ch Meadowpark Living The Dream. 

The Reserve Dog CC and Reserve Best in Show went to Ruth Dickson's Ch Monalou Dutch
Connexion To Geruth.  Just a few days short of 6 years old he was bred by Michele Gurney and
sired by Ch Barancourt Van De Weyenberg x Monalou Golden Girl.

The Reserve Bitch CC went to Lorraine Grayling's homebred Lujento Genoa Name.  A month short
of 5 years old she is homebred and a daughter of Ch Monalou Dutch Courage x  Welshbern Voulez
Vous At Lujento. 

Best Puppy was awarded to Johnson's Monalou Bay Breeze who was just 6 months and 1 day old,
bred by Michele Gurney and sired by Ned Ch Yoyo Van't Rijkenspark x Monalou Its Marlene. 

Steve, Jeannette & Emily Green's 7 year old homebred Waldershelf Happy Hattie won Best Veteran.
She is a daughter of Ch Bernolynn Its Beano Surprise x Quarts De Chaume Van't Rijkenspark At
Waldershelf.  Congratulations.

And so we have another new Bernese Champion, subject to Kennel Club confirmation.
