Curly Comms

Week Ending: 19/05/2024

International News, 15 May 2024
This week we start with some lovely international news, Birgit Engelsen told us….
Today, the Danish royal couple – the crown prince and queen – visited lake Ulsrudvann in Oslo, Norway, close to where we live. Several thousands of people showed up. Krissi, Skaringens Formosa, received a pat from Mette Marit, the Norwegian crown princess, who said: “Oh so cute”. Queen Mary also came over to Krissi, petted her and asked which breed she was. So nice to be able to show off our beloved curly breed, and that they noticed Krissi among so many people and dogs, tells you how beautiful this breed is, and Krissi is a great representative.

‘Krissi’ is the daughter of Quito – Maycourt Kashmir Con Redanimo, owned by Roz Davies & Lee Bradstock.

Activities

The Working Curly
South West Training Hub, 15 May 2024
Evening Training with Jill Gardner, owner of Foxcote Golden Retrievers, 15 May 2024
Nina Parker-Miles told us,
It was a gorgeous evening spent in good company.
We practised some memory retrieves and marked retrieves sending for the marked and then the memory. Then we did some blinds in rough cover. Marked and then blinds over a wall and then a memory retrieve that had been set up 20 minutes before. Jill was very pleased with all the dogs as she is pushing us quite hard. We had Rachel and Kopis (Roughyeds Regal George At Treecave) and Beau (Fleetpaw One For Arthur At HisRiver) with Heather and Wren (Overbore’s Ace Of Hearts) and I. Suzy’s girls were in season.
Kopis is like a rocket going off!!

West Midlands Training Hub, 19 May 2024
Six Curlies took part in the training day at Sunnymead. Lesley Eden told us,
Thanks to Su Carlin and to bundles of enthusiasm from all the handlers, pups finished by 11.15 and Novice by 12.15 before it became too hot and then on to coffee and cake. Great to meet up.
