Discover Dogs 2003 - Photo Special 1

The very essence of DISCOVER DOGS - actress Wendy Richard of East Enders giving her support to Dogs For The Disabled, which is supported by Hill’s. The event attracted a gate of 21,000 despite the poor weather and other local attractions

Pictured on the OUR DOGS stand at last weekend’s Discover Dogs was German reader Dr Katharina Welsch of Koblenz (centre) who won two free entrance tickets in the pre-show competition run by OUR DOGS. Also pictured is our reporter Di Rich and Vince Hogan, managing Director of OUR DOGS.

Lucy Pargeter from ‘Emmerdale’ was the celebrity judge of the Waggiest Tail competition in YKC ring

Despite the other attractions and the bad weather the gate over the two days topped 21,000

The stands and booths provided a splash of colour with the various flags of the countries of origin much in evidence
