Hound Sponsors Newsletter August 2021

I hope you're enjoying a summer with fewer restrictions.

We had a very successful pre-puppy show/sponsorship evening back in July with all this year’s new entry finding at least one sponsor and many continuing their sponsorship of the older hounds which is fantastic and an essential injection of cash regarding the health of our hounds. We all enjoyed seeing the bouncy puppies, who looked very well and confident on the flags – thanks to the hard work of Duncan and Billie-Ann.

Martin Derby and Paul Becke were commandeered to act as judges, a difficult job at the best of times and selected 2 very nice hounds - Banker & Ballet!! (These were walked by; Derby family & Hazel Shepherd respectively and Banker sponsored by Carol & Harvey Northwood, Sarah Jane Downes & Andrew Few and Ballet; Sue Clements and Esme & Rose Roberts)

A big thank you to everyone who supplied food and helped me out.

For your interest, the puppy show results are as follows:

Champion bitch was Hayseed (Walked by the Sankey family, sponsored by Caroline Anning & Alix Ashley)

2nd was Hannah (Walked by the Sankey family, sponsored by Angela Sankey & Gwen Lloyd Davies)

3rd was Harmony (walked by Amy Parkes, sponsored by Caroline Anning & John Holder)

Champion dog was Banker
(Walked by the Darby family, sponsored by Carol & Harvey Northwood, Sarah Jane Downes & Andrew Few)

2nd was Bachelor (walked by the Poole family, sponsored by Jackie Breedon & Ted Mincher- Lockett)  

3rd was Banter (walked by the Poole family, sponsored by Naomi Brown)

Overall Champion was Hayseed (who is a broken coated hound).

A puppy missing from my list and needing a sponsor is Albert.

Older hounds that are still with us that need their sponsorship money paid for this year are:
Amber, Amethyst, Beauty, Bronwen, Gratis, Hawthorne, Saffron, Sapphire, Stanmore, Statesman, Harvington, Rasper, Raunchy, Folklore, Hornbeam, Honeycomb, Hopscotch, Spartan, Payment, Pagan, Panther, Patchwork, Patience, Postman and Poppy (25 in total)

If you sponsor any of these hounds – monies will be gratefully received, thank you. If you no longer wish to sponsor, let me know and I will try to find somebody else for them.

As you know, this money goes towards vets bills and vaccinations which help to keep our hounds healthy and happy.
