  • Description

    TOP PLACE AMONG THE CANINE HIERARCHY WAS DECIDED TODAY (SATURDAY) AT CRUFTS SHOW IN LONDON. THE LEADING BREED THIS YEAR HAS BECOME LAKELAND TERRIERS AFTER THE VICTORY OF LAKELAND TERRIER STINGRAY OF DERRY ABAH IN THE SELECTION OF THE SUPREME CHAMPION.

    CRUFTS IS THE EQUIVALENT TO DOGS OF 'COMING OUT' FOR YOUNG BRITISH SOCIALITES, AND COMPETITION IS KEEN, PARTICULARLY AMONG BREEDERS AND OWNERS.

    THIRTY FOUR BREEDS TOOK PART IN TODAY'S JUDGING AT THE OLYMPIA EXHIBITION AREA IN LONDON. A TOTAL OF 6,800 DOGS WERE ENTERED IN THE SHOW.

    CRUFTS, NOW IN ITS 71ST YEAR, DOES, HOWEVER, HAVE A SERIOUS ASPECT. IT IS REGARDED AS THE PREMIER DOG SHOW OF THE WORLD, AND EVERY DOG EXHIBITED IS REGARDED AS A POTENTIAL EXPORT. LAST YEAR ALONE MORE THAN SEVEN AND A HALF THOUSAND PEDIGREE DOGS WERE EXPORTED FROM BRITAIN TO OVERSEAS FANCIERS.

    STINGRAY OF DERRY ABAH IS OWNED BY MR AND MRS POSTLEWAITE, OF GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

    THE RUNNER-UP WAS A STANDARD POODLE, BIBELOTS, ENTERED BY MRS SUSAN FRAZER, OF TORONTO, CANADA.
