Welcome to 13 NEW Members

We are pleased to welcome 13 new members to The Bolognese Dog Club UK, taking the membership up to 88 paid members! New members Alan & Phyllis Brenner from London had their first Bolognese over 15-years ago and have recently taken care of their second little darling to cherish for many more years. Also new to the club is Paul Irvine also from London and his Bolognese Khushbir who just celebrated his 13th birthday. Lynne & Christiana Kemmish from the Isle of White, Kristian Carnell from London & Laura & Michael Eviston again from London are all taking charge of new Bolognese puppies very soon and they have joined the club. We can also welcome Lorna Drew from Gloucestershire who has 3 Bolognese as well as other larger dogs and Lucy Mackness from Wakefield who already owns a Bolognese. More new members to welcome are Carol Martin from East London who owns the breed and Grigitta Meszaros from Ashford in Kent who owns, shows and breeds Bolognese. Michelle Brisco from Glasgow has joined and she is interested in owning a Bolognese (in fact we think she will have one soon).

A warm welcome to all new members, we hope you enjoy being part of the group and dont forget to fill in your profile with images of your dogs and tell us about YOU.

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.
