What a wonderful day we had at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire at the Dog World/Purina Pro Plan Pup Of The Year Final. Selmalda I Am Rock JW, following his qualification in July 09 at Working Breeds, was the only Dane representative and of course he received loads of attention as we prepared for the judging. Brenda Banbury was the nominated judge and unfortunately for the large breeds the marquee where the dogs were to be examined was rather restrictive. However Rocco did us proud and put his best foot forward! Go Rocco!
