Today (7th Dec) Jan sadly had to say goodbye to lovely Bryn of 16 years.
She rehomed this 'bit of a lad' at round 18 months in Jan's guiding hands he went on to earn all his
Kennel Clubs Awards,
CCEG Platinum Award
CCEG Brave Heart Award and
CCEG Life Time Achievement
more than this he was very special to Jan and the instructors of CCEG
“ Loss leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a
memory no one can steal.”

I led a Carol
Service for the Ladies Circle in our village this afternoon, and it
meant leaving Cheekah in the car for just over an hour. I'd given her a 5
then a couple of 10 minute waits in the car to get her a bit used to it
the ladies wanted her to come into the Hall and meet them, and when I
went back for her I was greeted with a lovely wag. But when I took her
into the Hall she saw Chris, and the photo is the result!
also met 7 or 8 dogs in the park this morning, there's usually a
gathering of them if you go at the right time... lots of little yapping
and barking characters, but it was good for her to meet them as well,
and she behaved fine
After 9 years in kennels Cheekah went home with Chris and Eric last Friday (30th Nov) and is loving her new life
To all that have attended classes with CCEG have a Very
Merry Christmas and a Great New Year

How common is lungworm?
from the Kennel Club
Lungworm is what we call an 'emerging' disease: it's gradually
becoming more common. Until recently it only appeared in select 'hot
spots' in the south of the UK, but over the last few years, it's been
successfully identified in various parts of the country. It's unclear
exactly what's caused this spread (and that of other parasites,
including ticks), but increased movement of pets around the country, and
abroad, as well as greater contact between wildlife and the urban
environment are all thought to be very influential factors.
Not every snail or slug carries the disease and lungworm's
geographical limitations means infection is currently relatively
uncommon, but it does rear its head from time to time; and in extreme
cases, causes death of infected patients, so it is potentially extremely

We now have a Microchip Scanner.... testing we discovered one dog that had been chipped didn't register on the scanner...the chip had 'gone' or stopped working. So after a visit to the vet (who also couldn't find it) a new chip was inserted.
So, if you would like your dog's chip checked please ask.
When using it one weekend we found most dogs showed concern having the scanner placed near their neck... So, Pat suggested we do this as a training class exercise.... so we will do this by passing the scanner round to a difference class each week.
“Dogs’ lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog, and there’s going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can’t support the
illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There’s such beauty
in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and for the mistakes we make because of those illusions.”
When seeking out information on diet, and other matters relating to
your dog's well-being, and where advice is offered as the result of research,
than if possible check out who funded the research -research for the most part
will find in favour of the company funding it.
