Yes and then the ones still at the club and getting trained by Pam Brennan and Irene Kilpert.
Last weekend on 18 June VAWZ [Veterinarians for Animals Welfare in Zimbabwe] held their Scruffs dog fun day at the Hellenic School along the Borrowdale Road in Harare in conjunction with the SPCA and with the help of the Kennel Club of Harare .
Entrance fees and a small fee for entering the fun classes were all for helping the SPCA needed expenses. Various classes owners and their dogs could enter like: veteran dog, dog with the most appealing eyes, dog with the waggiest tail and more. The SPCA brought their dogs on display who were looking for a good home.
The day started cloudy and cold and some dogs wore jerseys or were wrapped in blankets on their owners lap. Lots of children came into the ring to show their pooches.
The Kennel Club of Harare put on a display of how dogs can jump the various obstacles and some made many mistakes which was loved by the children and grown ups.
The following members will remain on the Committee for the 2017 period:
Mr. R Ellis, Mrs. U McKinlay, Mr. D Lamb, Mr. P. Cernuschi [Co-opted], Mrs. C. Jennings [Co-opted], Miss S. Fernandes [Co-opted].
Mrs. S. Lamb was re-elected.
Mrs. G. McLaughlan stood down after many years of hard work and running several shows each year.
The funeral went well… I set it up as if we were having a A.G.M..so the priest stood at the top table and about 50/60 people arrived so it was a very good turn out. Sue Carter had done a beautiful huge flower arrangement on a pedestal, which was put next to the top table… and she did another for the food table… We put the food table along the wall by the kitchen and a lot of people kindly brought food. It went off very well, we had the bar opened as well, and I eventually got home about 5.30. Pippa will be feeling sad now, her granddaughter has gone back to Australia, so she will be all alone…
Dear KCH Members
It is with great sadness that we advise that our ex-Chairman of the Kennel Club of Harare – Mr Dick Cory – sadly passed away on Thursday 3 April 2014 at home in Christon Bank.
There will be a memorial service on Thursday 10 April 2014 to be held at the Kennel Club of Harare at 2.30pm.
I’m sending you these photos of the 2 German Shepherds, both female,
People are always asking for German Shepherds but they don’t always understand the responsibilities attached to owning one and we’ve seen so many neglected dogs brought in due to ignorance.
They are 10months old and the one is very timid as she hasn’t been handled enough and I think the other one Kira is quite boisterous.
Gail is concerned about rehoming them to someone who has small children and doesn’t know what they’d be like around cats and other livestock like chickens + rabbits.
The problem with them is that they’ve been kenneled for a large part of their lives.
They’re coming into the SPCA this afternoon Thanks so much for your concern and hopefully you may be able to assist in some way through your website. I’m going to look at it now.
Megan, Naomi Chudy’s dog of so many, many years had to be put to sleep. She was a great old lady and Naomi will miss her dearly. Our thoughts are with you.
