If anyone takes photos at Trials, either dogs working or prizes being presented I would love you to email copies to me so that the website can be updated with new material and topical info.
Also on a light hearted note any amusing pics of dogs or handlers ( with their permission !) would be much appreciated.
Photos taken by Trevor at The Champion of Champions Trial
Thank you to Trevor for these
photos. I am still working out how to 
note who was the website is
playing up !! 
For those who were not there I thought photos of the venue might be of interest so see below.
Many of the photos were taken from inside my car so the quality is not good but it was far too
cold to fumble with an iPad in the open for very long. HJ.

The second packet on their way to the fetch gates
guided by an invisible dog. I think it may be the black dot off to the left of the sheep. 
Some more photos to come  when I get time but it is a very slow process loading them.

Many thanks to Penny Roe for these.
If anyone wants a print just ask and I'll see what I can do thats if Penny does not want copyright ! !
A message from Penny Roe about a lethal condition called Alabama Rot.
This is a new and 90% fatal illness of dogs.
It was first seen in USA, hence the name and has now appeared in the West Country. There is no vaccine  and so far the cause is unknown. Very swift treatment can in some cases save the dog . The first symptom is unexplained sores  especially on the legs. The best course of action is to go on line and read up about the condition, discuss with your vet and get any suspect sore seen by the vet ASAP. Many vets will not have seen a case yet but swift treatment with antibiotics and dressing of the sore/sores can be a life saver. The progress of the disease is to kidney failure and death.
