The British Chihuahua Club Yearbook

At the start of each year, the Club publishes a Yearbook covering the activities of the previous twelve months.  The book was known as the Chihuahua Chronicle until its redesign for the 2011 issue, and is now in its 29th year of publication. There have been several editors over the years, including the late Diana Fitt-Savage, Mrs Beverley Sutton and Ms Ruth Hart.  The Yearbook is currently edited by Bernard Coxhead, who gratefully acknowledges the invaluable help of Mrs Beverley Sutton with show results and pedigree information.

The Yearbook contains the following sections:

  • A quick reference list of all the CCs (Challenge Certificates) and Reserve CCs awarded at Championship Shows that year, with the names of the judges, the names of the CC winners with their running tally of CCs to date, and the Reserve CC winners;
  • Main results from Breed Club Open Shows with names of judges, number of entries, and winners of BIS (Best in Show), Reserve BIS, Best Puppy in Show and Best Veteran in Show;
  • A table of the 'Top Winners' of the year (CC, RCC and Best Puppy);
  • a list of 'Top Dog' awards made by the British Chihuahua Club and the dog showing press, also a mention of other noteworthy achievements by Chihuahuas during the year;
  • Three-generation Pedigrees for each CC winner of the year, listing the judges awarding those CCs and any CCs awarded in previous years;
  • Detailed results for each Championship show during the year in date order (with index) with judges, number of entries and the winners of each class.  2nd and 3rd places are also given for the Open class, indicating the winners of CCs, RCCs, BOB, Best Puppy etc and any Group or BiS placings.
We also include some general information about the British Chihuahua Club and the Rescue Association, guides to the various abbreviations used and obituary announcements for any well-known Chihuahua personalities or dogs that have passed on in that year.

In the second half of the book are the Affix List with contact details for those breeders and exhibitors who wish to be listed, and breeders' and exhibitors' advertisements, mostly with colour photographs of their prizewinning dogs.

Yearbooks and back numbers can be purchased at the Club stall at our shows and at Crufts, also from our Club Merchandise page.

To advertise in the Yeabook, advertisement order forms are available between 1st September - 31st December each year at shows, on request from the Hon Secretary, or from our website. After compilation, editing and printing during January and February, the Yearbook goes on sale at Crufts in March.
