Hello everyone

Firstly, a very happy and healthy New Year to you all. May it be a good year.

Your committee has been hard at work since we last saw you at our Championship show in October. Now that Royd and Lindsay are living it
up in Stanford, we have made a couple of changes to the committee - as you will see in the list on page 1. On behalf of all the Club
members, I would like to thank Royd for holding the reigns so capably in the past, and wish Alwine Pretorius and Angus Murray all the best as
our new Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson, respectively.

Please make a note of the dates of our 4 main events this year: the AGM, Open show,
Championship Show and Seminar. We hope to see you all at these events! The
AGM will be held at my house and starts at 11h00—followed by drinks and snacks.

I would like to remind everyone that their subs for 2007 are now due. Please would
you renew your membership as soon as possible?

I would like to thank everyone who submitted articles for publication: I really appreciate
you taking the trouble to send in items of interest.

Kind regards, Joyce Goldschmidt

Dear Members
As some of you may be aware, I stepped down as Chairman of The Cape Terrier Club at
a committee meeting held in December 2006 here in Stanford. My prime reason for
this was that the current committee is made up of an excellent and efficient team and I
feel that the club will benefit and continue its growth under a new Chairperson. The
previous Vice-Chairperson, Mrs Alwine Pretorius, was unanimously elected by your
committee to take over as the new Chairperson, with Mr Angus Murray stepping into
the position of Vice-Chairperson. Both Alwine and Angus are long-standing members of
your committee and possess a wealth of knowledge of dogdom together with impecca-
ble credentials for the running of The Cape Terrier Club. You are in good hands and, on
behalf of the committee, I wish them both every success. I trust that they will continue
to receive the support I have enjoyed from you the members.
I shall remain on the committee in the role of Show Manager, and Lindsay will be our
Show Secretary, having been replaced earlier last year by Mrs Joyce Goldschmidt as
Hon Secretary. I am sure most of the members are aware of the major role Lindsay
played in the welfare of the club and, once again, on behalf of our members a very big
thank you to her. In Joyce you will find the same energetic and committed secretary to
assist in oiling the Club wheels.
My good wishes for 2007 go to all and may the year be an excellent
one for The Cape Terrier Club,

Kind regards
Royd Frith

                        On behalf of the Committee I would like to welcome ‘Tucker’ (Talanors Hat
                        Trick), who is the only Manchester Terrier in South Africa, to our Club.
                        (Manchester Terriers are on the Vulnerable Breeds List UK KC.) Tucker was
                        born on 6th June 2006 in Yorkshire, UK and belongs to Barbara and Michael
                        Simpson. Tucker's Sire got the Ticket at Crufts this year and his half-sister has
                        just been made up to Champion. We look forward to meeting them at the
                        shows in the Western Cape in the next few months!
                          NOTICE OF MEETING

We, as a club, are fortunate to have our own gazebo to be put up at shows.
It was purchased, primarily, to be used by the committee at our 2 annual
shows. It is put up at other shows as we feel it is important for the club to
advertise itself at these shows.

At our club’s OPEN and CHAMPIONSHIP SHOWS we do need the whole
space for an office area and we can, unfortunately, not accommodate
anyone except committee

We owe many thanks to Angus
Murray and Joyce Goldschmidt
for lugging it along and erecting
it at shows.


                 A quotation from Cheryl Zuccaro - Westie-chatters website:
                 "It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart
                 with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of
                 their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog,
                 and I will become as generous and loving as they are.‛


The breed was founded by Frantisek Horak (1909-1996) in the Czech
Republic.    Also known as a Bohemian Terrier or Czech Terrier, the
breed is relatively new and was developed in the last century. Horak
wanted to breed horses and ponies from a young age and at the age of
9, he was allowed to start breeding dogs and, after WWII, he started to
breed ponies as well. Horak became a geneticist and worked for many
years at the Academy of Science in Prague. During his breeding of
dogs, he became well known for his Scottish and Sealyham Terriers,
which he used in hunting near his home. Horak’s kennel was named
‘Lovu Zdar’ which means ‘Successful Hunter’, this is true with both his
Scotties and Sealyhams and then later this can be seen with the

Horak got his first Scottish Terrier in 1932, however, he was concerned
that it was too aggressive. He started hunting with the dog and bred Scotties for this purpose. In 1934 he met a
Sealyham owner and had a conversation about the two breeds. At this point he believed that the product of this
crossing could create a better hunting dog which was capable of working as a pack and could go to ground and fit
in burrows too small for its parent breeds.

It was not until December 1949, that the first combination of a Scottish Terrier dog and Sealyham Terrier bitch
produced the first Cesky terrier - named Adam Lovu Zdar. During this breeding, Horak kept detailed records of
blood lines and in the years that followed, he worked to set the characteristics he was looking for. It is from this
that an accurate account for the breed’s history can be seen. Unfortunately, this Cesky was shot by a careless
hunter in 1950 causing a setback. Horak repeated his breeding, however, this time he used the Scottish Terrier,
Scotch Rose with Buganier Urquelle, producing six puppies, which was the beginning of the Cesky Terrier.

Horak aimed to breed for a narrower chest and moderately sized head with slightly longer legs that was suited to
digging and endurance. Additional characteristics Horak bred for were softer coats and an aggressive tempera-
ment for hunting but also a dog that could be easily handled. The dark colour of the Scottish and the drop ear of
the Sealyham were also taken into consideration. The Cesky was bred to hunt mammals such as fox, rabbit, duck,
pheasants and also wild boar. He also wanted a grooming style that was easy to maintain. The Cesky is never
hand stripped like many terriers, but is groomed with clippers. This made the coat much easier to groom for those
Ceskys kept as a pet or shown in the ring. This breed is undocked. In 1956 after ten years, the breed was pre-
sented to the public and was recognised by the Czechoslovakian Kennel Club. The FCI registered Cesky terriers in
1963 with the breed gaining increasingly popularity, particularly with hunters.

In its homeland, the Cesky Terrier is a much beloved national treasure and has been featured on postage stamps,
artwork, and literature, on TV and in movies. The Cesky became popular in several Scandinavian countries, even
though there was a ban on exporting the breed for many years. Increasingly, the Cesky can be seen in England,
the United States, Canada and Australia.

Not only did Horak’s terriers gain success as hunters, but also in the show ring. The first Cesky to gain the Cham-
pionship status was Horak’s Javor Lovu Zdar in 1964. At the Symposium held for the Cesky in 1994, 57 Ceskys
were exhibited and at a show in Sweden in 1995, 68 were entered, showing the increase in the breed’s popularity.

A sturdy low set dog, rather long in proportion to height.

                                          The Cesky’s coat is wavy with a silky sheen and should be brushed and
                                          combed out at least two times a week. He has a soft coat and it does not
                                          shed, but with any non-shedding breed, it can occasionally mat if not cared
                                          for properly.

He needs to be trimmed about every 6-10 weeks - the hair on his back and neck should be no more than 1.5cm
long. This is done with electric clippers, even for show purposes. There is no "stripping" in this breed. Most people
learn to groom their Cesky Terriers, but it can be done by a professional groomer as well.

Very agile working terrier, hardy and tough, plenty of stamina.
The Cesky Terrier is less aggressive than his parent breeds,
friendly and companionable. He is somewhat reserved with
strangers, but dedicated to his owner and friends. He usually
gets along better with other dogs than most terrier breeds,
makes an excellent house dog and is good with people of all
ages, especially children.

With small animals such as hamsters, gerbils, mice and rabbits,
the Cesky cannot be trusted to be left alone or near the animals
due to the natural instinct to hunt and kill. The Cesky can, how-
ever, be taught to get along with animals such as cats.

Ceskys are an active breed due to their instinct to hunt and should be given regular exercise to keep him in good
shape. However, this is not entirely compulsory as the breed can be self exercising if living with another dog. The
breed is also very obedient and loyal and, to keep them mentally stimulated, obedience classes could be consid-

                                                               There are two basic colors allowed in the standard of the
                                                               breed: gray-blue and light brown. Yellow and grey mark-
                                                               ings allowed on cheeks, underside of muzzle, neck,
                                                               breast, lower parts of legs and under tail. White collar or
                                                               tail tip permissible. There were three brown dogs born in
                                                               the early development of the breed, but they left no off-
                                                               spring. Then, in June 1994, another brown Cesky Terrier
                                                               was born. It is too early to tell if this dog will bring the
                                                               brown color back into the breed. Even if this happens, it
                                                               will be years before any brown dogs become available.
                                                               Right now, only gray Cesky Terriers are available.

                                                             The pups are born black and fade to gray. They may
                                                             become any shade of gray, from pale silver to dark char-
                                                             The breed is born black with white areas on the body and
can take as long as two years to lighten up to their final shade of gray. Ceskys can be any shade of grey from the
very dark charcoal colour to an almost white platinum colour and to have a rough estimate, the colour of the parents
should give an insight. The breed can also be born with a brown coat, how-
ever, this is rare in the breed. They may be unicolored with a small amount of
white (particularly on the chest), or they may be bi-colored, with furnishings of
lighter gray, tan, cream or off-white.

Height: 28-35,5 cms. Ideal weight:
Dogs: 8kgs and Bitches: 7 kgs.

It is estimated that the Cesky will live for 12 to 15 years.



Most domestic dogs fit into human family life extremely well but, occasionally, a male dog
becomes a trouble-maker. He bites visitors without
provocation, urinates in the house and stubbornly
refuses to obey orders. On a family outing, it is he who
takes his owner for a walk rather that the other way
around. He stops when he feels like it and moves on
when the mood takes him. All attempts to tug him
along on his lead are vigorously resisted. At feeding
times he may ignore his food bowl and have to be
tempted with special tidbits. How does a pet dog
develop this type of personality?

The answer is painfully obvious - although the owners of
such dogs are always reluctant to accept it. The fact is that male dogs of this kind have sim-
ply been allowed to become the dominant members of their ‘pack’. Each male wolf tries to
achieve this status in the wild pack - and domestic dogs are no different. Humans have a
great advantage over their dogs in the dominance stakes because they are physically larger
but, if the animals are unduly pampered, they will make a bid for pack leadership. If they
win one confrontation after the other, they eventually arrive at the conclusion that they are
indeed now the dominant member of the group.

This need not involve actual fights with their owners. A confrontation can be won simply
because the dog manages to overrule his human companions when they wish to do one
thing and he insists on doing something else. After a long string of such ‘wins’, the dog
considers he is dominant and then starts to behave accordingly. This includes urinating in
the house and deciding what happens next when out on a walk.          This is not abnormal
behavior: it is perfectly natural for a dominant animal to take the lead when the pack is out
‘hunting’. So he finds it hard to understand why his decisions about starting and stopping
should be challenged. Additionally, one of his leadership duties is defending his subordi-
nates against attack from strangers. Hence his assaults on the postman, the milkman and
other visitors.

Some dog-trainers are able to cure these difficult dogs by a course of disciplinary training so
that they are bullied into being subordinate pack members again. But there is a danger in
too much of this kind of treatment. The outcome of undue emphasis on discipline and obe-
dience is the production of a fawning, characterless dog of an unattractively submissive
kind.     The secret where dogs are concerned is to aim at a happy medium - to balance
ultimate control with a much freedom as possible.

                 Adapted by Joyce Goldschmidt from ‘
        Why are some dogs difficult to control?’ in ‘Dogwatching’
                         by Desmond Morris .

LIKE PEAS IN THE POD ? Submitted by Machteld Schumann-Warren

The founder of modern genetics was Gregor Johan Mendel. He was the discoverer of the laws of heredity,
although he knew nothing about genes and chromosomes. His experiments were with peas in the monastery
gardens and from these experiments he discovered that when two individuals are mated which are contrast-
ing in any particular trait, one trait will appear in the offspring and the other trait will not. He called the trait
which shows “dominant” and the other “recessive”, and it is the understanding of this which can help dog
breeders considerably.
The most important genes for a breeder to be aware of are those with the dominant-recessive relationship,
which are the carriers, because the recessive characteristics of these genes can suddenly appear in future
generations, although in one or more generations they have been masked by the dominant gene and do not
show. Recessive genes skip a generation or they may skip many generations, and they will not appear unless
there is an identical recessive gene from each parent. Dominant genes, on the other hand, do not skip a
generation. A large number of the progeny are affected and only those that show the trait can carry it. There
is far less danger with the dominant genes because these can always be seen.
Clever dog breeding has always been achieved by a combination of inbreeding and linebreeding : and
whenever more vigour has been required, judicious outcrossing is necessary. The average progeny of all
these types of breeding will be equal, but where inbreeding is resorted to the extreme will be much better or
much worse. It must also be remembered that even the most outstanding stud dog will not be genetically
suitable for all bitches.
INBREEDING: Inbreeding is the mating of close relatives, that is, father to daughter, mother to son, brother to
sister, etc. This should never be contemplated unless the stock is absolutely sound both physically and
LINEBREEDING: This is similar to inbreeding but to a lesser degree. Nothing new can be introduced into the
hereditary blueprint. It consists of the mating of close relatives, although a common ancestor may only
perhaps appear in the fourth generation. It is wiser for the average breeder to play safe and to keep his dogs
closely linebred.
OUTCROSSING: Outcrossing is the mating of unrelated dogs. This is generally resorted to when some
particular feature from another strain is required, or, perhaps to correct a fault which has crept into a strain.
THE BEST MATINGS: The author found that, provided the stock is good, and that NO two dog are mated
together which have the same fault, and that the important genes are known, the following matings have
been the most successful: grandfather to grand-daughter, grandmother to grandson, uncle to niece and aunt
to nephew, son or daughter to dam’s half-sister or half-brother when the common parent is outstanding.
Brother and sister matings can be good, particularly if one parent is outstanding, but they can not add to any
new characteristic and the offspring cannot be genetically than either parent. Inbreeding father to daughter
or mother to son will show up all the existing faults, and should only be done when the good qualities out-
weigh the faults, and when the recessive genes of the ancestors are definitely known.
It seems that dog breeding is a combination of art and science, to which must be added a modicum of luck
and of course the genius and irrepressible optimism of the breeder.

1.   Be especially patient with your humans during this time. They may appear to be more
     stressed-out than usual and they will appreciate long comforting dog leans.

2.   They may come home with large bags of things they call gifts. Do not assume that all the
     gifts are yours.

3.   Be tolerant if your humans put decorations on you. They seem to get some special kind
     of pleasure out of seeing how you look with fake antlers.

4.   They may bring a large tree into the house and set it up in a prominent place and
     cover it with lights and decorations. Bizarre as this may seem to you, it is an important
     ritual for your humans, so there are some things you need to know:
     a. Don't pee on the tree
     b. Don't drink water in the container that holds the tree
     c. Mind your tail when you are near the tree
     d. If there are packages under the tree, even ones that smell interesting or that
         have your name on them, don't rip them open
     e. Don't chew on the cord that runs from the funny-looking hole in the wall to the tree

5.   Your humans may occasionally invite lots of strangers to come visit during this season.
     These parties can be lots of fun, but they also call for some discretion on your part:
     a. Not all strangers appreciate kisses and leans
     b. Don't eat off the buffet table
     c. Beg for goodies subtly
     d. Be pleasant, even if unknowing strangers sit on your sofa
     e. Don't drink out of glasses that are left within your reach

6.   Likewise, your humans may take you visiting. Here your manners will also be important:
     a. Observe all the rules in #4 for trees that may be in other people's houses. (4a is
         particularly important)
     b. Respect the territory of other animals that may live in the house
     c. Tolerate children
     d. Turn on your charm big time

7.   A big man with a white beard and a very loud laugh may emerge
     from your fireplace in the middle of the night.


First time at a dog show, I'll tell you quite plain,
I'll never, no never, go near one again.
The breeder said "show him" when I bought the dog,
I showed him alright - the whole place was agog.
They gave me a number, they gave me a pin,
But I couldn't bear to stick the thing in.
So I rushed to a shop and bought some clear glue
And stuck the card onto his back in the loo.
We arrived at the ringside to find we were first
In the dog pup class (this part was the worst),
We marched in together, as fast as was able –
Arrived at the Judge who said "up on the table"
This really surprised me, my skirt was quite tight,
And I just couldn't make it try as hard as I might.
The Judge looked quite worried, he said "listen here-
Put your dog on the table, not you my dear!"
By now I was trembling, I felt such a fool
But I said to myself "play it cool, play it cool"
"How old," said the Judge, and I heard it quite clear.
Well really! I thought and said "thirty, next year!"
The Steward, poor fellow, threw some kind of fit.
He spluttered, he coughed and his eyes ran a bit.
"I'd have that cough seen to" I said to him when he finally stopped.
"Once round the ring, dear, quick as you can" Said the Judge,
so I did, I just ran and ran. But when I arrived (out of breath, I admit),
The Judge said "Your dog, dear"- I felt such a twit!
Off round once again, I kept my head bent.
Oh, the shame, my pup crouched, he just went and he went!
The lady came running with bucket and spade,
With manure so pricey, had she got it made!
We came back to the Judge, who said with a frown
"Stand your dog". I said "Please sir, he's not laying down"
"You can take the first prize stand, he said – I said "Ta!"
What a job I had getting the stand in the car!

 SHOW ETIQUETTE by Alwine Pretorius
As we have members joining our club who are new to the show ring, we would like to give
you a few pointers. This will hopefully help to make dog showing a great new hobby.
        KUSA show regulations state that NO ANIMALS other than an exhibit entered for
        competition or for exhibition shall be permitted within the precincts of a show except
        registered Guide dogs for the blind, Hearing dogs for the deaf and dogs requested for
        educational purposes or by permission of the club holding the show. So, unfortu-
        nately, your other pets will have to stay at home.
        Read the show schedule carefully. Sometimes the order of judging is changed and it
        may affect the time you have available to prepare your dog for the ring.
         Make sure that you wear the CORRECT EXHIBITOR NUMBER for the dog you are
        entering the show ring with.
        Please listen carefully when the ring steward calls out the exhibitor numbers. After a
        number has been called out twice and you are not there, they may mark you absent.
        As long as your breed is being judged, stay near to the ring until the Best of Breed
        and Reserve Best of Breed have been placed.
        Check the show schedule – if there is a judge appointed for Best Puppy; Best Junior;
        Best Veteran in Show – if your dog is a winner in the Terrier Group, he will have to
        go in the ring again at the end of the show for the challenges. Reserve Best of Breed
        winners of groups compete in the Mini-Grand, if this is listed on schedule.
        Be courteous towards the judge. He gives up his time and travels - usually at his own
        expense - to show venues to give his opinion on your dog.
        If you suspect that a mistake had been made with a placement, calmly and politely
        bring the matter to the ring steward’s attention.
        It is not fair towards a judge to expect him to go over a dirty or un-groomed dog.
        Even if it is an Open Show, it is important to enter the ring with a well-presented
        specimen of your breed.
        A quiet ‚ thank you‛ to the judge and ring steward as you finally leave the ring will be
        Whether or not you agree with the judge’s placement, it is good manners and sports-
        manship to congratulate the winners.
        NO cars are allowed on a field, there is a reason for this. We are losing more and
        more venues on account of undisciplined and selfish actions by exhibitors.

                  ALL IN A DAY’S WORK...
First call:
She:      “I am looking for a Wire-haired Fox Terrier, or otherwise an Amberdal.”
Me:       “Excuse me?”
She:      ”Yes, an Amberdal. You know, those biiig terriers.”
Me:       ”An Airedale.”
She:      ”Oh, is that how you pronounce it. But anyway, I just love those unusual and rare breeds
          and I would love to give my husband a Wire- haired Fox Terrier for Christmas. We own a
          Labrador, two miniature Schnautzers and a Sharpei. (They obviously love dogs, rare and
Second call:
He:    ”I am calling re a Scottie.”
Me:    ”Right, I shall give you the names of a few breeders.”
He:    ”Actually, I want some advice. You breed Scotties, don’t you?”
Me:    ”No, I just put people in contact with breeders.”
He:    ”You see, I have a problem with my Scottie. He goes to training classes and does most of the
       things but not as smart as all the sheepdogs and German Shepherds in his class. Now they
       want to have him tested to be promoted to the next class etc, etc, etc and my wife says...”
Me:    ”Your dog seems to do very well for a Scottie. They can be trained but not with the same
       outcome as a Border Collie.”
He:    ”Oh, I am so glad for your advice as a Scottie breeder. I shall tell my wife that you had said
       that he is doing well...”
Me:    ”I do not breed Scotties.”
He:    ”Thank you so much again and I shall go and tell my wife now that a Scottie breeder has
Third call:
He:      “My Scottie drowned in our pool last night. I must get another one right away.
Me:      ”Sorry to hear about your dog. How did your dog get into the pool area?”
He:      ”Oh, He got through the fence somehow..... I really feel awful, but I need to get another
         black one.”
Fourth call:
He:     “I got your number from KUSA. I have this stunning three year old Fox Terrier male. He is a
        real purebred and I am looking for somebody with a bitch to use him as a stud dog. He is the
        long-legged, purebred South African type, not one of those ugly ones with the long faces.
        And you know, the “ experts” say that you must put a long-legged dog to a short-legged
Me:     (feeling quite faint by this time): “I am truly sorry but I cannot help you.”
He:     (at first deflated but then perks up again.) : “Oh, but remember if you come across a
        short-legged bitch please put them in contact with me. My name is ... and I live in....”
Umpteenth call:
He:     ”I got your number from KUSA. I hope you still have Jack Russell puppies available.”
Me:     ”I do not breed Jack Russells but can put you in contact with a breeder. Do you want the
        dog for show purposes or as a pet?
Caller: ”No, just for a pet, but it must be a short-legged one.”
