Essex Dog Day ​Report (Edited extract)

The glorious grounds of Crix the Georgian mansion at Hatfield Peverel hosted thousands of dog lovers and their bright eyed and excited canine chums for the fifth Essex Dog Day. And they came in every size, colour and variety. Large hairy hounds and tiny toy pets, snooty pedigrees and cheerful crossbreeds paraded round the showground with their proud owners.

In addition to more familiar breeds in the Meet the Breeds tents were some exotic breeds with strange sounding names that many will never have heard of including the Podengo and the Adephagi Estrelas (by coincidence both from Portugal), the Dogue de Bordeaux, the Leonberger and the Japanese and American Akita. A grateful Stephanie Brown, Chairman of the Akita Rescue and Welfare Trust said “In the three year’s that we have been coming to the Essex Dog Day the Essex showgoers have rescued many of our dogs and a lot of them can be seen walking around today.”

(Thank goodness we do not have the same sort of problems in our breed. – Ed)
