Dogs celebrating publication of a new book on dogs care. More fur on women than on dogs - it seems!
L/S of people entering a room with their dogs (all poodles). They seem to register at the entrance. One sweet black Poodle wearing red coat walks on two legs following a man in suit. High angle shot of the people with their dogs filling the room. Many women wearing fur coats. M/S of a lovely Cocker Spaniel having his/her paw mark taken into a book. C/U shot of the cocker Spaniel 'signing the book' several times - is he giving autographs?!
Around two hundred dogs are gathered to celebrate the publication of a new book on the care and treatment of dogs. Spaniel was giving autographs after all! Highlight of the evening is a parade of champions. L/S of a woman walking a Corgi across a little stage. C/U shot of Chihuahua eating sausage roll. M/S of a Dalmatian being walked by a woman whose lower body is seen. C/U shot of a dog biting into a sausage held by woman's hand. Low angle M/S of a woman wearing fur coat with Pekinese (Pekingese) dog in her arms. C/U shot of a couple and their dogs (French Poodle and Bedlington terrier). C/U shot of a lovely Corgi's face. M/S of a woman stepping on the stage with a great big hairy dog (some kind of sheepdog). M/S of the Cocker Spaniel looking around. M/S of a little grey Poodle with red collar.
M/S of a great big Boxer guide dog walking a blind man on the stage. This is Kim, a special guest who escorted her owner, former Royal Artillery officer, all the way from Southport, Lancashire. C/U shot of the Spaniel eating from the silver plate. Cut back to Kim and her owner. Another shot of a lovely Corgi. M/S of a woman wearing long fur coat climbing on the stage with a great Greyhound dog. C/U shot of another woman's face with a strange looking dog (Papillon possibly). Back to the woman with the Greyhound. C/U shot of a funny hairy Poodle - looks as if it has beard and moustache.
Note: A man helping the blind man down the stairs is Lord Brabazon of Tara.
