That’s it then, time for the annual lie down until the days get a bit longer. There’s a list of Open Shows to look forward to, the KC Journal and the Irish Canine Press to look at, an eye testing clinic to book in for and an AGM to think about. If you haven’t entered for Crufts you still have until the 22nd and if you want to get ahead of the game National Terrier closes on February 22nd.
Remember us when you’re at Westminster or Manchester so hopefully they’ll be a big catch up session round about February 19th.
Please support the Glen DNA Archive at the Animal Health Trust (AHT) by contributing Glen DNA + pedigree & health information for future health research projects.
