Congratulations also to H Walker for making up another Irish Show Champion (subject to confirmation).Malanis Pirate at Ameysford was bred by Hannah Denbigh by Sh Ch Malanis Sandor at Glenlderry X Malanis Tillymin.Of the swabs from IWS we sent in a dog has been selected the swab has been anaylysed the data downloaded and its now a matter of whether the GDG project will be successful in getting anything useful as to how we can test dogs in the future to rule out this disease.The fact that 16 breeds are involved in this research hopefully gives us more chance of identifying a genome that might be responsible.A very interesting talk on Epilepsy was given by Professor Holger Volk.
Coming home with a 1st rosette is a wonderful bonus.
Report from IWS Breed Health Coordinator – Sue Hempstead Congratulations to Mr & Mrs D Rawlinson for making up Pharises Moulin Rouge to an Irish Show Champion (subject to confirmation).

It is a great sadness when we lose our faithful dogs and this month has seen the loss of 3 dearly loved and much missed IWS. Joan Robertson has lost Kora (Fynder Night Wave) to an aggresive form of leaukaemia at just 6 days short of her 10th birthday.
Diane Wheeler who many of you will know from her wonderful rally sessions and tests at the IWS weekend has lost Lexie - again almost 10 year old.
