We have a new page on the BCX website.
It is a glossary of terms which I have been planning to do for about five years! You can find it in the show menu under compilations and 2nd in the drop down.

A brief introduction......
The Kennel Club standards are concise, uniform in structure and provide a basic description of the perfect specimen. Positive attributes are highlighted. Faults are not usually included but are covered by the standard fault clause “Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog”.

This Glossary of Terms provides definitions of canine terminology used in the Breed Standards, judges critiques and around the ringside and should prove enormously helpful to new people starting out showing, breeding and beginning their judging career plus those of us who hear certain parts of our dogs described in differing ways and appreciate that sometimes using the wrong words can cause confusion!

'Unbelievably its been 10 years since the last Book of Champions!! So Book number four is now in the pipeline and as always I have a pre-publication offer.
Back in the 1980's when I first started compiling this unique piece of breed history Steve Appleby was the person who spurred me on to do it by telling me it was an impossible task and that you would never get the photographs of every Champion and it's quite ironic how with the last copy and this one Steve and Marian were very involved in helping with the compilation of lists and articles and also on the proof reading. So without Steve we wouldn't have a book one never mind book number 4!
This edition is only going to be 400 copies Worldwide and publication date is March 2019,
I will have order forms at Crufts or print of and fill in this one.
If paying by Paypal please include Champion Book and your name and address and make it a personal payment please.'
