Timmys Awards

Update on Timmy: Timmy did his level 3 trial today. Oct/18 He won again scoring 98/100, he scored full marks but my handling skills lost 2 marks, must do better next time.

Great News from Timmy he passed his Scentwork UK level 1
last October, and his level 2 last Friday, 27th May, 2017. 
Timmy also came first in both these trials, the other dogs were 
Spaniels, Boxers and German Shepherds. I am very proud of him.

 We are sorry to report the dealth of longstanding Lancashire
 Heeler Club member, Mrs Pauline Gater of Colchester, Essex.
 Mrs Gater, whose affix was Colnstar passed away earlier this
 month March, 2018.  We send condolences to her husband   and family.

 Mr David Smith - Blackpool, was admitted to hospital earlier
 in the week 1st February, 2017, and, unfortunately, has
 had to have his leg amputated below his knee. Mr Barry
 Allison informs us that David is doing fine, after his serious
 operation.  David's late wife, Joy, was a member of the LHC
 Committee for quite a number of years and wrote the News-
 letters back in the early 2000's, Joy's affix was 'Atomohi'. We
 wish David all the best in his recovery.
 David is home now and much improved, but it will take time.


As reported previously, Mrs Gladys Hopper, was admitted to hospital a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately Mrs Hopper passed away on
the 11th February, 2017.  There was a Service at St Leonards Church, Commons Lane, Balderstone, Lancs. BB2 7LL on Thursday 23rd February, 2017, at 11 am followed by cremation at Pleasington Crematorium.
Gladys and her husband Jack supported the Lancashire Heelers for many years showing their dog Duke.  Later they 'fostered' a rescue bitch.  They were always popular at local get togethers.

On Sunday the 24th August, 2014, at 1 o clock, held an informal 'meet' of  Lancashire Heelers and their owners,  on the Green at Lytham sea front, opposite the Lowther Gardens.


Everyone was cordially invited and we had a good
"picnic"/dog socialising afternoon,  to promote the Lancashire Heelers to as many of the numerous inquisitive members of the public who usually frequent the sea front promenade on their weekend day out.



There is an interesting article and photos, in the March edition of 'Lancashire Life' by correspondent Emily Rothery, on sale in the stores, all Heeler fans should have a read

Thank you to everyone who did their stint in promoting our dogs


"Having read the book  'Crackers Come Hear', it was a very moving story and kept me engrossed, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even now months after I finished it, it still leaves me with memories, and I read a lot and it has to be a very good book for it to stick in my memory slot. I can more than recommend this book for Heeler owners or for the people who find themselves in the same position." Enid Lord

Thank you for including my book Crackers... Come Hear on your website. Enid Lord's testimonial was lovely and I thank her most sincerely for her words as well as for you to post it on your site. I have finished the audio book of Crackers... Come Hear and am most excited to now be able to tell our story to my many blind friends who use Guide Dogs for their assistance. Thank you everyone at LHC for your support over so many years. All the best throughout the coming new year to all. With hugs and smiles, Dennis Robertson

Lancashire Heelers are a native breed of the United Kingdom originating from the County of Lancashire, they were used on  farms to herd cattle and sheep, they are the smallest dog in the Pastoral group, this group comprises of dogs who were used since the very early days of mans first close association with dogs

In 1978 a group of  Heeler enthusiasts from all parts of the United Kingdom decided to form a group  and named it The Lancashire Heeler Club. Then under the guidance of a lady Mrs Gwen Mackintosh the dogs were recognised by the Kennel Club in 1981.  Our aim is to help and promote our lovely dogs.
