The Clumber Spaniel League Victoria is Australia's first ever Clumber club, despite the breed arriving in Australia in 1883. The first pair came to Victoria direct from the ancestral home of Nottinghamshire's Clumber Park in the northern reaches of the famous Sherwood Forest.
The CSLV was founded in September 1997 at the Melbourne Royal by Jan Irving, Lisa Franke and An Cerato, who were soon joined by Sandra Sanim, and Dorothy Chisman. In April 2004, the centenary year for the UK's own Clumber club, the Victorian Canine Association accepted the CSLV affiliation application.
Major work was undertaken in 2004 to raise a minimum saving fund of $2400 to cover the equivalent of ten years' affiliation and incorporation fees, and then attention will turn to health and rescue funds. The first shows will be held in Skye on July 10th 2005.
Foundation members were Jan Irving, Lisa Franke, & An Cerato
Inaugural members were Sandra Sanim & Dorothy Chisman

this is your site administrator, there are things that niggle me about this system, so I plan to write a simpler and easier to use membership site. In the meantime watch here for major announcements, etc

SHOWS 2011 - THREE OF THEM!
The CSLV held their three shows over the weekend of March 26 & 27 with excellent entries of 23 24 and 23, and Eltham ABKC also attracted an entry of 20 Clumbers. It was superb to have the support of exhibitors from South Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales to back up the local teams who fronted to present the breed en masse to the dog world - and you were noticed! All the judges praised the depth of quality. The results are appearing online at http://www.erinrac.com/results/list.php (my sincere thanks to the little wiz who got these up!).

RESEARCH SUPPORT REQUEST
Roe is of course instrumental in the Clumber Spaniel Health Foundation and a successful breeder & exhibitor of Clumbers (BlueMoons prefix, USA)
As I'm sure you have heard, I'm working for the Van Andel Research Institute now. We are intensely focused on hemangiosarcoma research, along with four other cancers (lymphoma, osteosarcoma, melanoma and malignant histioctyosis).
I am really trying to boost sample recruitment. We need blood samples and/or dna from Clumbers who have or have had hemangiosarcoma. Any help you can give us in this respect will be greatly appreciated.
Talk to you soon,
