We had some very sad news regarding one of our much loved dogs Jude. Jude was a star of the show ring and in 2012 he sired a litter of 13 puppies in the UK. His legacy lives on in all of his offspring, some of whom have had puppies of their own. Here are a few words from Jude’s owner, Reyna Knight:

The Fun Day at Chris and Alasdair`s was absolutely great as I knew it would be and that is why I decided not to let everyone know my sad news. Jude, Chique Barolo, was put to sleep on the Friday before the Fun Day. Chris and few others knew but it is always such a sad time when you lose a dear friend that I did not want to dampen in any way the activities.
I was with Jude when he arrived in this world and with him at the end when my Vet came to the house. He gave me so much pleasure in the time we had together, yes he did really well in the show ring, I still have a lump in my throat when I hear the song that accompanied us around the Best in Show Ring at Crufts when we did our lap of honour, but even more important he has been my best friend through thick and thin over the years and it is now his son Freddie’s turn to take that roll.
None of us want to say goodbye to our dearest friends but I know that when we do we do it with the dignity deserving of our great breed.
