We Have an Artist in Our Club

Welcome to NEW club members Janet & Peter Hargood from Exeter in Devon, who have just joined the Bolognese Dog Club UK. Janet is an artist and she has sent us an image of one of her paintings. Jan said, “This is a pastel portrait of our Bolognese, Milo, at his favourite haunt  – Knightshayes Devon. I am sure you will agree that he makes a cute model”.

Milo’s portrait won an Honourable Mention in the 2018 competition of the Pastel Guild of Europe. Fortunately he hasn’t let it go to his head!

You can see more of Janet Hargood’s work on her facebook page www.facebook.com/janhargoodart.

FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I own 3 Bolognese and show the youngest Harry. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed, so I started The Bolognese Dog Club UK. I have bred 7 litters, but don't breed currently.
