Essex Dog Day ​

2015 Show Report (Edited extract)

The glorious grounds of Crix the Georgian mansion at Hatfield Peverel hosted thousands of dog lovers and their bright eyed and excited canine chums for the fifth Essex Dog Day. And they came in every size, colour and variety. Large hairy hounds and tiny toy pets, snooty pedigrees and cheerful crossbreeds paraded round the showground with their proud owners.

In addition to more familiar breeds in the Meet the Breeds tents were some exotic breeds with strange sounding names that many will never have heard of including the Podengo and the Adephagi Estrelas (by coincidence both from Portugal), the Dogue de Bordeaux, the Leonberger and the Japanese and American Akita. A grateful Stephanie Brown, Chairman of the Akita Rescue and Welfare Trust said “In the three year’s that we have been coming to the Essex Dog Day the Essex showgoers have rescued many of our dogs and a lot of them can be seen walking around today.”

(Thank goodness we do not have the same sort of problems in our breed. – Ed)

From Di Curtis.

Just a little photo and a quick message about the NPPA representing the Podengo at Essex Dog Day today.

We got one of our visitors to take a photo of us and I have attached for you. Unfortunately John & Trish weren't able to be with us for the whole day and so by the time we remembered the camera they had already gone home (sorry Trish & John). Normally Rob & Sue come all the way up to join us too, but they were otherwise engaged this year, so weren't able to. The same applied to Jenny & Nigel Folds.
