Securing their place at the final from the dog class was Mr Hollies and Miss Carr’s, Chow Chow, Ch Janqbu Valentino JW, pet name Tino.

19-month-old Tino is quite the character.

‘Tino loves to run around our large table with a squeaky toy in this mouth playing catch me if you can. He also does the similar game round the grape vine, when you want him to come in at night.

Tino has had a successful show career to date, winning his Junior Warrant title under 12 months of age and being one of the ten dogs pick to go through to the final of the Junior Warrant competition to be held at Crufts 2020. He was made in to a Champion at 15 months and also took Chow Chow of the Year 2019. Tino also took Best in Show at Ashfield, Nottinghamshire Canine Society Open show 2019, Group 2 Puppy in Show at BUBA 2018, plus many Best Puppy in Show and Best in Shows and numerous stakes classes.’ Says Peter Hollies.

Joining Tino at the final is 23-month-old Llhasa Apso, Ch Khinjan Bellisima, pet name Belle.

‘Belle is the sweetest most affectionate companion; she loves playing with tennis balls and squeaky toys.

She has won 8CC’s,, 7RCs, 3 BOB’s, many best puppy in breeds, 3 Best in shows at club open shows and Best in show at club Ch show.

17-month-old Lhasa Apso, Askja Diamonz’ N Doozies, pet name Chispa, took third in the bitch class.

‘She’s the most loving dog I’ve ever had. Loves cuddles, loves everyone. She’s a bit of a clown, and very, very cheeky! Loves going for walks, swimming in the lake/beach in the summer, and she’s not afraid of getting messy. She’s also great at training, has KC Gold Good Citizen and does Agility, Rally, Hooppers and lots of fun stuff that she enjoys thoroughly.

‘He has just turned 18 months and has had a very successful first year showing , achieving his Junior Warrant , a reserve CC and currently top Junior Male French Bulldog after many champ show wins in the summer.

‘19-month-old Ella loves everybody. She is very lively, full of fun and just loves showing and being center of attention. She does Like to steal things though like socks, shoes and the post.
