East Anglian Collie Association held their DOG OF THE YEAR contest at the Littleport Leisure centre

The dogs have to win certain shows during the previous year to qualify , The judges are announced on the day and this year our Judges were All rounder Pat Ward and Breed specialist was Maxine Mellish

The veteran dogs were up first, there was 9 entered Ghost was one of them sadly he didn't make the final but he showed for Georgie very well (considering he had a bad accident not to long ago and it was in doubt that I would ever be able to show him again, he has made a full recovery)

In the adult section there was 21 entered and both Thistle and Diablo were in this section, Barry showed and handled Thistle and Georgie had Diablo, Thistle showed really well considering Barry never shows the dogs so well done too both and Diablo was a little unsure of the floor and the big blue curtain but he really did well, sadly once again both did not make the final cut.

This show is a very prestigious one and it is very hard to qualify for so well done for qualifying all three, Thank you Georgie.
