Paul Atkinson, and his rescue hound Finn, caused much hilarity winning the ‘Dog most like his owner’ class. Paul also had a nice long tail attached to the back of his trousers!"
There was actually a competition for Longest tail and this was won by Paul & Anne Vaudin's Hogan - his tail measured just over 30". (I think Paul Atkinson's tail might have been longer, but he wasn't eligible, not being an IW himself!)
A few years ago, the Committee decided to introduce an annual competition for 'Dog of the Year', with the winner being chosen at the Rally. This year there were several very worthy entrants, but the decision to choose Jill Stayte's 8 year old Veteran bitch, Jennie, was a very popular one.
