Win a rare copy of The First Book of The Lancashire Heeler!
The Virtual Lancashire Heeler Community Companion Show!!
Kathie Kidd was very knowledgeable about the Lancashire Heeler and did much to promote the breed. She wrote / edited several books, served on a number of canine committees, including The Lancashire Heeler Club, was the Heeler breed correspondent for the canine press and wrote a number of articles that were published in periodicals.
Long before any of us had forseen the impact of the internet Kathie led the way in publicising the breed and encouraging people internationally to share their resources. Both of her red books are highly collectible and contain a wide collection of Lancashire Heeler stories and pictures from Lancashire Heeler breeders and owners worldwide. It was when reading Kathie Kidd's books that I first thought about the idea of the Lancashire Heeler Community, where lovers of the breed can just enjoy and celebrate the ownership of The Lancashire Heeler and promote the breed by sharing experiences of showing, canine sports / working activities, health problems and, above all, celebrating a breed that makes the most wonderful and intelligent pet.
As a thank-you to all who have supported this site I am giving away , via a free competition, a copy of the much sought after First Book of The Lancashire Heeler, edited by Kathie Kidd. It also feaures the wonderful drawings by Eeva Maija Lehtinen, from Finland, which appear on this site with her kind permission. A further prize is offered in the form of a hand crafted Lancashire Heeler puppy who is currently sitting on my office desk awaiting a new home!
This competition is for fun and fun only!
The aim of the competition is to promote the breed and generate as much interest as we can in the Lancashire Heeler. Hopefully that will mean that more people will be asking about the breed, visiting shows etc. so please tell as many people as you can.
