Comforts of the Big Dog Bed Company by Geraldine Cove-Print DRU ROSS is a lady on a mission; she wants us to start taking as much care about buying our dogs a bed as we do when selecting our own.

In the Dog House by Simon Parsons Let’s look back 40 years to the winners at the Houndshow and National Gundog from 1974. The former was topped by Barbara Wilton Clark’s blue Greyhound bitch Ch Shalfleet Spode. I know both she and her litter brother Ch Sir Lancelot are still...
