Addie (Adrienne from Torfheide)

We are very sad to bring you news that Addie passed away on 21 September, after a short illness. Addie was one of Shadow’s first litter, and much loved companion of Kathryn Sosville. Addie loved playing ball and is pictured below taking a well earned breather after a game. She will be reunited with her brother, Arnie, who crossed the rainbow bridge himself a short time ago. We send our love to Kathryn at this very difficult time.

And our first ever Zoom Quiz champions are…

Sian Baynton and her mum!

On 18th August we held our first ever Zoom Quiz to raise funds for the Rescue Fund. Eight teams entered and Sian and her mum were worthy winners of a close contest, just one point ahead of Ros Kind and Chris Platt! Apparently it’s important to know your dog breeds from your chicken breeds!

We’d like to thank everyone who entered the quiz and also those who donated – your contributions raised £355 for the rescue fund, which is very much appreciated. Also, thank you to our quiz master for the evening, Lucy Lewis, who did a sterling job!

Look out for details of our Christmas Quiz!

Kai (Aarton from Goose Meadow)

We were very sad to hear yesterday of the death of Kai (Aarton from Goose Meadow) at the age of 11 years and 4 months. Kai was one of only the second litter to be born in the UK from an Austrian dog brought into the UK already in whelp. His sister Shadow went on to be mother of 22 of the UKs puppies. He also had two brothers. Freddy who sadly dies some years ago and Rocky who lives in Germany. Our thoughts go to Kai’s family at this very sad time.

In memory of Alfie

Today is a very sad day for all Entlebuchers and their humans in the UK and beyond. Yesterday we said goodbye to our founding Entlebucher, Alfie (Einstein van de Tiendenschuur) as he lost his long battle with illness and crossed the rainbow bridge. Alfie was well known to many of us, not only in person, but through his daily blog, and will be greatly missed by all of us. We send our sincere sympathies to his humans, especially Ros and Chris, and to his housemates, Shadow, Aristotle and Wilma.
