Well, with the buzz around Crufts, I actually penned the next line in March – fancy doing an editorial for a June issue in March!
Subscribers now have access to some news from Crufts, the video interview with the Best of Breed owner and results.
Anyway , of course, that event is in the past although I assume there will be a lot of activity on the decision for many months to come – I hope and urge that any or all of that activity is for the betterment of the breed. Whatever happens with the breed, owners and breeders need always overcome anger or disgust at certain events or euphoria and glee at the other extreme and make sure their energies result in the progress of this ancient breed to another generation in a healthy state.
This issue we have a splendid interview with Annika Akerman of Sugar Loaf, our regular supporting information for breeders, introduce the writings and Clumber activities of Graham Constable, and a host of our regular features.
I am also trying (and not getting much support at the moment) to organize a major feature on eyes, and articles on basic training, nail trimming, and more — if you would like to comment, please contact me.
