Chicken Jerky

Posted on November 24, 2011 at 3:40pm 10 Comments

I have just picked up a Facebook message and apparently it was on Fox news earlier that 70 dogs have died as a result of eating chicken jerky treats made from chicken that has come from China.

Kingdom Pets brand from COSTCO is one of them. Also certain Blue Buffalo brand pet foods have a recall for the same thing. Please re post and make sure all your doggie friends are aware of this

Crufts E S Rosettes

Posted on March 28, 2011 at 10:19am 6 Comments

I just thought I would let you know that Barbara still has a few Excusively Setters Rosettes that were ordered for Crufts but the people didn't pay her for or collect them.

I am really concerned that Barbara worked so hard to get the rosettes for us all and I really don't want to see her out of pocket over it.

If anyone ordered one and didn't collect it or anyone would like one - they really  are beautiful!  Please contact Barbara Gladwish.

Hi Viv!

Thank´s for nice comment! Yes it is lovely with all this snow, but I would prefer to have it BEFORE Christmas.
The dogs love it and as long as they are happy so am I.
Best Regards, Kristina

Hi Viv,

It was a tearful day at MISS Ch Show on Saturday. We went hoping to win the PGB Class but little did we know it was to be a special day.
It was a great result for Maureen – we are sure she was looking down at us.
A great day.

Kind regards
Colin & Pamela

Yes in my case I have the paperwork to show that both Jas and I are both Veterans, I know what you mean about time flying, And of cause we have got to get another puppy to show.....that is why I am going to keep a dog from my next litter, if I ever get it, (the litter that is)....;0)) See you in the ring too
