'The Friendly Club'
A HEELER SOCIAL SUMMER MEET
On Sunday the 24th August, 2014, at 1 o clock, it is proposed to hold an informal 'meet' of as many Lancashire Heelers and their owners, as possible, on the Green at Lytham sea front, opposite the Lowther Gardens.
Everyone is cordially invited and it is planned to have a
"picnic"/dog socialising afternoon, and to promote the Lancashire Heelers to as many of the numerous inquisitive members of the public who usually frequent the sea front promenade on their weekend day out.
It should be an ideal opportunity to have a pleasant
day out and hopefully soak up the sun and fresh air
in the company of our delightful best friends - The Heelers
Do you fancy appearing on TV,
Do you fit the bill, are you fanatical about
your hobby in dogs, to find out -

"Having read the book 'Crackers Come Hear', it was a very moving story and kept me engrossed, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even now months after I finished it, it still leaves me with memories, and I read a lot and it has to be a very good book for it to stick in my memory slot. I can more than recommend this book for Heeler owners or for the people who find themselves in the same position." Enid Lord
Thank you for including my book Crackers... Come Hear on your website. Enid Lord's testimonial was lovely and I thank her most sincerely for her words as well as for you to post it on your site. I have finished the audio book of Crackers... Come Hear and am most excited to now be able to tell our story to my many blind friends who use Guide Dogs for their assistance. Thank you everyone at LHC for your support over so many years. All the best throughout the coming new year to all. With hugs and smiles, Dennis Robertson

Lancashire Heelers are a native breed of the United Kingdom originating from the County of Lancashire, they were used on farms to herd cattle and sheep, they are the smallest dog in the Pastoral group, this group comprises of dogs who were used since the very early days of mans first close association with dogs
In 1978 a group of Heeler enthusiasts from all parts of the United Kingdom decided to form a group and named it The Lancashire Heeler Club. Then under the guidance of a lady Mrs Gwen Mackintosh the dogs were recognised by the Kennel Club in 1981. Our aim is to help and promote our lovely dogs.
