Bernese News 30th October 2015

Happy Halloween!

The Bernese entry for Working & Pastoral Breeds of Scotland Championship Show 2015
which takes place next weekend has been announced as 58 exhibits giving 61 entries for breed
specialist judge Cathy Connelly (Kossberne) who will be awarding CCs for the first time.

For comparison the entry at the 2014 show was 51 exhibits giving 61 entries with 11 absentees
and 2 places withheld for all-rounder judge Sue Garner.


At Midland Counties Championship Show 2015 breed specialist judge Sonja Gorbould 
(Glanzberg) had drawn 84 entries with 19 absentees across 14 classes.  

Winning his first CC and Best of Breed was Reg and Sherry Round's  Collanuses Black Magic
who is just a month short of 4 years old. Bred by Sue Flanagan he is sired by Ch Collansues 
Snow Patrol x Collansues Rock Goddess.   

Jaybiem Yeuben Chozen JW was awarded the Reserve CC.  Owned by Gary Griffiths, Mandy
Orme and June Miles and bred by June he is  3 1/2 years old and sired by Duntiblae Dark
Protector Of Otherton x Ch Jaybiem IKea JW ShCM.

In bitches Joanne and Trevor Sutton's homebred Ch Bernsteph Dior Rememberf Me JW ShCM
won her 4th CC.  She is a daughter of Sennensson Nina Ricci At Bernsteph and was sired by
Tickbern Over The Moon. 

In the Reserve spot was Michele Gurney's 4 year old homebred Ch Monalou Fanny Craddock JW
who is by Ch Bernerdalens Uno Amigo Bueno x Ch Monalou Perfect Recipe.  

Best Puppy went to Bernice Mair & Carole Hartley-Mair's homebred Meadowpark High Class who
is  sired by Ch Meadowpark Vertigo JW x Meadowpark Northern Blend and is 9 months old. 

Exhibitors at the show were concerned for the well-being of June Miles when news reached the
show that she had been involved in an road traffic accident en route.   I gather June was on the
M6 with travelling companion Glenda Smith plus a Bernese and Leonberger on board when a car
crashed into the rear of June's vehicle shunting it into the central barrier.  I am told June's vehicle
was wrecked and June, Glenda and the dogs were trapped inside for a while, shocked and shaken
but everyone got out in one piece thanks to the Police and Ambulance crews for their care and 
attention at such a frightening incident.  Here's hoping June, Glenda and both dogs make a full and
speedy recovery.
