Well-remembered show by Simon Parsons I HAD hoped for a reply to my query regarding the identity of the Cocker Spaniel I featured last week, and reproduced again here, but what I hadn’t expected was to hear from someone who had actually been at the show concerned, and who remembers it...

Dog Coat Company’s Cashmere Coat by Geraldine Cove-Print Cashmere, for me, the word conjures up a luxurious and faintly exotic picture. It’s a fabric woven from the softest undercoat fibres of the cashmere goat, beautifully light and strong with terrific insulation qualities...
