Such a shame  the end of Dog World. I took over as breed note writer about 9 years ago.
Thank you to Ian, who offered to put the breed notes on the DBC site. We will get the news to you weekly as it happens as with the paper we worked a week behind.
Keep your news coming to me, I pick up what I can on Facebook.
I also have ordered  Our Dogs at least we have one paper.
Best wishes to you all and good luck with the showing.
