We are delighted to announce the safe arrival of CaicosRoos C litter yesterday – two little boys, Charlie Chaplin and Capella, and three little girls, Cup Cake, Coralie and Camille. Mum and puppies are all doing well. Congratulations to the proud parents, Babeli CaicosRoos and Ron (John Snow d’Isolagerre)!
Welcome to the world, Cotton and Carling Eiger
We are delighted to announce the birth of the Swiss Dawn litter – Cotton weighing 470g and Carling Eiger weighing 500g arrived yesterday afternoon. Congratulations to the proud parents Edison Eiger vom Rickental (Eiger) and Ophelia vom Gspan (Lia).
A couple of months ago, Sybil (Eroica vom Rickental) took a short holiday in Cornwall, where she had a bit of a holiday romance with the handsome Leo (Torfheide D’Artagnan)! Today, Sybil gave birth to a beautiful little girl puppy and we’d like to congratulate the proud parents on her safe arrival. Pup is from Skyeannroos kennel and is yet to be named, but we think you’ll all agree that she is absolutely gorgeous!
After the success of our first ever Zoom Quiz in August, we’re holding our Christmas Quiz on Tuesday 8 December at 8.00pm. All are welcome, whether members of the Club or not, and all proceeds will go to the Entlebucher Mountain Dog Club Rescue Fund. If you’ve not done an online quiz before, why not give it a go – there will be questions for everyone, including picture rounds and a 50/50 round. We look forward to seeing you there!
It is always very sad when we hear of one of our dogs passing over the rainbow bridge and this year in particular, we’ve already said goodbye to too many of our Entlebucher friends! We are therefore very sorry to have to tell you that Orson from Balihara, one of our founding dogs, passed away yesterday at age 13. Born on 4th April 2007, Orson was the proud uncle and chief puppy sitter to Queenie’s litters. Orson was a truly gentle, though timid, much loved dog and our thoughts are with Kristina and Ed at this difficult time.
We’re please to let you know that the Club has had two matings recently. Sybil and Leo had a romantic encounter in Cornwall a few weeks ago, and Izzy and Bandet (pictured below) got together in the South East over the weekend. Everything seemed to go well for both couples, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for the patter of tiny paws in mid November and again in early December. Further pupdates to follow!
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.
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!
We are pleased to announce that Buddy has qualified for the Kennel Club’s Show Certificate of Excellence. This is awarded to dogs who have achieved over 50 points in General and Group Open shows. It’s an amazing achievement for a dog in an import category and deserved recognition of all the hard word Buddy and his owners, Sian and Darren Baynton, have put in. Congratulations – we’re very proud of you all!
It is with a very heavy heart that I bring you the news that Arnie died on 5 August. Arnie was Shadow’s first born pup, the first ever Torfheide pup. He was named after the vet in Switzerland who saved the day when Shadow’s chip failed after she mated. Arnie’s family are devastated. He had surgery for a torn cruciate yesterday and came through it fine, but then this morning while still at the vet had a heart attack after a short walk. Sadly CPR was unsuccessful. Our love to Ceri Eagling and all the Eagling family at this very difficult time
