Scroll for copy in English, please!

Maren Bichel-Schnock hadde en flott helg i England - både på Windsor Championship show og på Skotsk Terrier Club of England sitt Championship show, den 28.06.2014.

Far til mitt nye kull, Sir Darnley´s Windsor Wizard, vant certet, ble BIM fra Yearling Dog-klassen, på sistnevnte show. Dommer var rasespesialist Carol Annan (Lomondview). Det var total 76 skotter påmeldt.

Route to conception

As it turned out Agnes´ (Tatler Tickled Pink) season peaked during the school´s Easter break.

1417 miles of motorway through Denmark and Germany - in addition to crossing the Skagerrak strait, by ferry, which runs between the southeast coast of Norway to the northernmost tip of Denmark´s peninsula Juttland - we made it to our destination and back home again.

Sir Darnley´s Maren Bichel-Schnock welcomed us with open arms - and her lovely, much winning, brindle boy Sir Darnley´s Windsor Wizard seemed happy to see us too. Well, especially Agnes!

This was both Agnes´ and Windsor´s first time. Too risky for some probably, too many un-knowns, and too much traveling involved - but this doggie-business is a risky business. If you´re never prepared to take a (calculated) risk in life you never will get anywhere.

I´m so exited to see how this match turns out further down the line.

Tatler Teacher´s Pet

Sid (Born 08/10/11 - Ch. Dundee Royal Excellens ex. Pocket´s Rocket) was third best male at the Norwegian Scottie Special last Saturday. He is one ticket away from his Norwegian championship, and has two new chances this weekend. Sid is handled by his owner Kristin Meagher, from Stavanger, who never had been in a show ring before she got this handsome guy. Marvellous, I´m so proud of you guys! Go - go - go!

Tatler Turnberry´s critique

Please click on photo to ENLARGE!  
Here is Veli-Pekka Kumpumäki´s (Kennel Perhaps, Finland) critique of Berry, at the Norwegian Scottie Special last Saturday where she was BIS-Intermediate and BB2 - in English and Norwegian: 

A delightful little bitch with excellent proportions. Deep, compact body with a deep and well-shaped brisket. Good bone. Beautiful topline. Excellent hind quarters. Correct tail-set. Nice head - a bit round in skull. Great mover, with wonderful posture. I´d like to take her home with me!

En herlig liten tik med prima proporsjoner. Kompakt, djup kropp med djup välformad bröstkorg. Bra benstomme. Vakker topline. Utmerket bakstell, med korrekt ansatt svans. Trevligt huvud – en tanke rund i skallen. Rör sig flott med herlig resning. Henne skulle jag vilja ta med hem!

There were 38 Scotties entered. The show was judged by Mrs. L. A. Crawley.
Windsor is the 3rd German-bred Scottie who has won a CC in the home-country of our lovely breed! The first two were also Sir Darnley-Scotties, bred by my friend Maren Bichel-Schnock. Congratulations!

Agnes is in whelp / Agnes er drektig

Happy to share the news that my young girl N SE CH TATLER Tickled Pink is in whelp. The litter, which is due before midsummer, is sired by the lovely SIR DARNLEY´S Windsor Wizard. This young German-bred boy (by Maren Bichel-Schnock) has already won no less than 15 BOBs at the age of 20 months, and also multiple group-placements and wins. Fingers crossed for a successful delievery and for strong, healthy puppies.

Bonnie BOB - Hamish BOS

March 15/2014: DUNDEE So Explosive (Ch. So What Excalibur ex. Ch. Dundee Masquerade Flirt) went BOB, and my own SIR DARNLEY´S Undercover Urchin (Ch. Dundee So Classic ex. Ch. Sir Darnley´s Rambling Ruby) went BOS, under breed specialist Cindy Pettersson at the Norwegian Terrier Club show in Kristiansand today. And for a change there actually were more than a couple of Scotties in the ring - an entry of 10 isn´t bad at all! Congratulations to owner Gerd Elin Bøe, breeder Christina Hüttner, and to 'Bonnie' who I've groomed since 'day one'!

Best terrier/group win at national show in January

January 19/2014: At a national show today in Norway, on her very first weekend out, from Junior Class, my 15-month-old TATLER TURNBERRY (SE N CH Sir Darnley´s Undercover Urchin x Pocket´s Rocket) went BOB, won her first CAC, and finished as BIG1 on the day. 
Berry´s father, Hamish, went BOS, I might add.
Francesco Cochetti judged the breed, and Ligita Zake, the group.
I´m delighted and thankful!

Trimmekurs 2014 / Grooming class 2014

Du verden så mange dyktige deltakere vi hadde på årets skottetrimmekurs sist helg! Jeg har lyst til å trekke fram mor-og-datter teamet Unni M. Hanesand og Lene C. Ugland fra Haugesund. Disse jentene har aldri eid en trimmerase før, begge deres skottegutter er bare tre år gamle, de var på skottetrimmekurs for første gang i fjor, siden har de gjort eksakt hva instruktøren har sagt - og har følgelig endt opp med to skotter i utstillingskondisjon! Talentfulle damer, sant? Nå håper jeg de snart kan ta imot trimmekunder - det er noe vi virkelig trenger på vestlandet! (Ja, landet rundt, når jeg tenker meg om). 

Just returned from the club´s yearly Scottie grooming-class: My goodness how many talented participants we had! I would like to highlight the mother-and-daughter team Unni M. Hanesand and Lene C. Ugland, from Haugesund. These girls have never owned trimming-breed before, and both of their Scottie-boys are only three years old. They attended their very first Scottie grooming-class last year and have since then followed the instructor´s (myself!) instructions precisely! Talented ladies, aren´t they? Now I hope they will start to accept their own grooming clients - we really need groomers on the west coast of Norway! (Well, in the entire country, come to think of it).
