Jaquenetta German Shepherd Dogs
FROM THE SOUTH WEST. JEAN HISCOX.
I enjoyed the British Sieger, it was a good venue with plenty of parking. We took our own food so I cannot comment on the catering. Attendance at the event was good, both inside and outside the ring. Plaudits should go to everyone involved in the organisation of the event. The addition of adult working classes next year should make it even more interesting. Many congratulations to Julie and Tom Bridge with Astana Alfons becoming British Sieger. We were stood next to Tom and he explained that Alfons was called out by the judge at the Sieger Show in Germany and given special mention for his excellent bite work. I heard him being mentioned at the Show, but not having the benefit of a Brian Wootton sitting next to me, all I knew was it had something to do with his protection work, so now I know, thank you. Also many congratulations to Carol Eastwood and Alyson Reilly with Antilli Xambi adding British Siegerin to her Irish title. We first met Carol after we used Marto v Trienzbachtal , she had used him also and we were both showing bitches by him. It is pleasing when you have quality dogs winning owned by unassuming quality people. 1st in MPF was Robinson’s Corjon Otty , I mention her because the saying that a German Shepherd should look as though it is carved out of one piece of wood aptly describes her, she is a one-piece female. At the British Sieger last year the judge described several bitches as V plus, the judge this year also thought up a different grading he referred to the 1st in Youth Male Jackson & Rice’s Conadrew Lesko as Extraordinarily Good. In Puppy Male 5th VP Hiscox & Vessey’s Zumander Bacchus (Pakros x a Larus daughter). We were in two minds about entering him as he looks raw for his age, but he has to start somewhere and he needs the practice. 8th VP Bassett & Yates & Roxburgh’s Kalbeshan Qudos at Gollygobble. 1st P Kirwan’s Kalbeshan Quant at Gollygobble. These two litter brothers are by Quantum out of an Esko daughter. Their litter sister Kalbeshan Quisqa at Gollygobble was 7th VP in Puppy Female. Youth Female 3rd SG Dodds Ardenburg Allegra, a Pakros daughter. 1st G Green & Tolputt’s Devat Carin, a Videx Omar at Devat daughter. Young Males 9th SG Aldridge’s Figo v Amulree, a Zamp son. Young Females 1st SG Cullen & Scheerer’s Veneze Bree, by Orbit out of John and Pauline’s Ch. Flexy, an Esko daughter. 8th SG Cooper & Ward’s Usharrgo Malan. 12th SG Aldridge’s Edser Estella. Adult Males V4 Davies & Davies Silverleigh Estor, an Esto van Noort son out of Niamh, a daughter by their French import Nielsen du Normont. He was pulled out third after the individual, Rob and Margaret were in France for the French Sieger so they missed watching his achievement. V13 Pearson’s Voneche Edition, Angela was really chuffed with Eddy’s V rating. He hurt his back a while ago and had been having treatment for it. I believe this was his first outing since his recovery. Andy had been left at home doing some work on the house, so he was another one to miss his dog’s performance. V13 Julian & Bowen’s Lararth Sonny. SG1 Julian’s Ch. Zuberg Lyric JW. Adult Females V7 Apps Zeline v Luttersbrauch. V15 Cullen’s Veneze Ali.
Emma Hensley has returned to the South West bringing with her Fahra v Amulree, a Zamp daughter. Her litter brother Figo is here also with the Aldridges.
I met Carol Black at the German Sieger, there have been rumblings for a while now concerning hip scores of dogs exported to Australia and New Zealand. So I asked her if it was true that to be exported to those countries the Norberg Angle must have no more than a score of three each side. Carol verified it for me.

We sold a bitch puppy to a couple in Southern Ireland, they have farms over there and live down a quiet lane. They had her for about a month when Dennis received a heart sinking phone call from Marie, who usually took the puppy everywhere with her. She had to go out without her and left her in a fenced area for about half an hour, when she returned the bitch puppy had gone. She feared she had been stolen, but there was a car left in the yard with keys in the ignition and they concluded that if the puppy had been stolen the car probably would have been as well. They could not find any holes in the fence she could have escaped through. They were distraught. Dennis told us and we immediately e-mailed the Tattoo Register with details in case anyone contacted them. When a dog goes missing the imagination goes into overdrive. The couple searched for her and contacted their local Dog Warden, sending photos of the bitch they had taken the day before she went missing. The bitch was looking up into the camera and the tattoo could be seen in the ear. She was found by the Dog Warden at a Traveller’s site a week after her disappearance identified by the photos and the tattoo in her ear. What a relief! Fortunately she has a sound character and her adventure did not seem to affect her unduly: she is now being spoilt by her owners and will be able to do no wrong for a while.

It was good to see the Kirschental Kennel to the fore at the Sieger Show. When we used Wilko his offspring had superb confidant characters, they were sound, free movers and well constructed with hard and naturally dry constitutions, but their coats could have been better. The bitch we kept had a high prey drive, was hard as nails, but very biddable. We were novices to showing and were advised by people we thought at the time were knowledgeable, not to show the bitch we kept as, though she was black and a very rich gold, she lacked furnishings and would do nothing in the show ring. So we did not show her. She was breed surveyed Class one by Percy Elliott who commented on her very good construction.
