  • Description

    Item title reads: "Bonzo's Beano! Ugly, cross-eyed, bandy legged, the worst mongrel, etc., win awards at Mr. Cecil Aldin's "worst dog" show." "The "non-electrical"hare."

    Porlock, Somerset

    C/ U of a dog, a mongrel, sitting with a rosette in its collar. C/U of various dogs with their owners. Next, the owners and dogs take part in a race in which the owners have to mark out each pace one foot in front of another, very slow. Another race involves a white fluffy dummy hare being dragged along a field chased by dogs, dragging their owners on leads behind them. An Irish wolfhound looks like the winner, and it lurches straight towards camera, almost crashing into it.

    Note: This certainly isn't Crufts - it all looks crazy.
