Help needed ! Could someone check if Black Pearl owned by the Ellis Jones gained her title - from memory I believe she won a CC and a number of Reserves but that her brother Black Knight became a Champion ?

She again wanted me to reiterate her thanks to the committee for all their hard work and also the success of the Champioship Show.

She is very much looking forwad to presenting the club awards at the April Show. ... See MoreSee Less

FYI. Christine Wilkinson lived her final years in a very nice care home, just over the Humber Bridge, set in spacious grounds, overlooking the river Humber. She did yearn to have one more ETT before she died. Her son approached me at Crufts ( he wasn't a dog exhibitor), and explained the situation, and would I sell them an ETT. I travelled from Cambridgeshire to Hull, with, I think Reeberrich Come Dancing ( who I had decided was too small and over refined, so culled her out of my breeding programme and had her spayed). I confess I was rather dubious about the whole idea, and went up only on the agreement that if I didn't feel happy about this, I would bring the bitch away. Mrs Wilkinson was not told in advance. When I arrived I was certainly bowled over by the quality of the home, the friendly atmosphere etc etc. The son looked at the bitch, as did the matron, and liked her. They agreed that when Mrs Wilkinson died that Come Dancing could either finish her days at the care home, or the Son and his wife would guarantee her a home. Having agreed all that, it was decided to introduce Cheeky ( Come Dancing) to Mrs Wilkinson. We did it by the son walking Mrs Wilkinson onto the Terrace to overlook the garden. I then came around the corner of the care home and Cheeky was following off lead and bounding about the lawn. Mrs Wilkinson shouted, ' Oh look! An English Toy Terrier! How beautiful', ( frankly I think if Cheeky had looked like a bag of spuds Mrs Wilkinson wouldn't have minded!). Long story short. Cheeky and Mrs Wilkinson lived a few years together at the care home, where in true ETT fashion Cheeky charmed all the residents. I got a Christmas card and update letter every year from Mrs Wilkinson until she died ( although eventually others had to write it for her) As per his promise the Son and Wife gave Cheeky a home for her final years too. I had quoted Β£250 purchase price, and as the Son got his wallet out I said, ' No. I don't want any money, not even for fuel, this is my gift'. It was an highly emotional day, and worth every mile of the journey to see the joy spread across Mrs Wilkinson's face.

Lovely gesture Johnny.

How wonderful. You must write a book JR.

Colimnbine __Colin Zariffy think that's how you spell it.The man with a chewed hat and a carpert bag always to be found sitting with Doggie Hubbard the old dog book stand to be seen around the shows in the 80s and 90s..

Could you do a spotlight on history piece gif the breed notes on Christine ? Johnny Richardson Thank you .

Well what can I say except WOW. What a lovely day at the ETT Champ Show today. It exceeded all expectations. I always make a habit of thanking people so here goes. Firstly I would like to thank the committee for working so hard and getting there early to set things up. Thanks must also go to our Judges - I know you enjoyed the day Judi Cross was telling me over lunch how she enjoyed her judging. Stephen Bardwell was full of praise after his appointment by personally informing the exhibitors what a wonderful show it was. Our steward for the day Ryan Ross excelled himself and showed us all how its done together with his trusty helper Kim Ross. The running of the kitchen went very smoothly and thanks here must go to Jan Fiers, Graham Newton, Clayton and Lisa's Mum (apologies don't know your name) who gave up a days shopping to help us out. And last but not least a big thank you to the many exhibitors and visitors who came to enjoy the day Without all these people coming together in harmony this event would not have been as successful as it clearly was. Full report will follow later. Time for bed. ... See MoreSee Less

Loved having a quick browse through this, it's fascinating, especially seeing so many pics of dogs that are in Ellie and Enzo's lines

Oh, I was so engrossed, in the competition that I didn't get around to taking a look 😒

Hopefully they will be at another show Barb.

The same to you and I would like to say on behalf of my mum and myself thank you so much yet again to you Graham and all the committee for working so hard to put this show on. Here's to yet another successful show. Safe journey all. And as we always say you take the best dog home. Good luck xxx

Correct Sandy - and thank you for appreciating the work of the committee. See you Saturday.

Is Audrey coming as well ?

Not sure Carol - she is going to try but it's not a good time for her to leave the dogs. She is definately hoping to attend the shows next year.

Here, seems as good a place as any to pronounce the dubious ' good' news that I am intending to be there this year ( it's been about 10 years since)

Thats good Johnny.

Sorry I wont be there but good luck to all hope you have a lovely day xx

Still bad Michelle bless you was hoping to have a laugh with you both , you take care and hope to see you at the next show coming up xxxxx

All done and ready for customers!
