    2.Flatcoats
    3.Flatcoats
    4.Flatcoats
    Ooooh, and the last one will be hard:

    Probably not going this year, but if I was, I'd be heading straight for

    1) Flatcoats
    2) Russian Black Terriers
    3) Pointers
    4) Skye Terrier (so cute!!)
    5) St Bernards

    And then I'd spend the rest of the day having a cuddle with all the English Setters sleeping on their benches :)

    1) Miniature Pinscher
    2) Basenji
    3) Shiba Inu
    4) Tibetan Terrier
    5) Norfolk Terrier

    Italian greyhounds are a toy breed not hounds and it is usually the greyhound rescues who do the greyhound discover dogs stand' The dogs there are usually ex racers and not show bred greyhounds to see them you will need to be there on thursday and go to the breed ring which ids is usually in hall 5.

    If we get time I shall pop up to discover dogs but will have to take Tabitha with me. There are only 2 breeds we will be going to see they are

    1 saluki's
    2 black russian terriers

    with both of these we will be going to visit friends although I'm not sure if my friend will be on the BRT stand as she has been stewarding in the breed rings for the last few years.

    No, they aren't a registered breed in the UK, nor with any other major kennel clubs in the World I don't think ( but things may have changed!)
