Canine heroes are wanted

DOGS in south east Northumberland that have truly earned the title of man’s best friend are being sought by the Kennel Club.

Nominations are wanted for the club’s annual Friends for Life competition being held at the prestigious Crufts event.

The club wants to hear from people who feel that their life, or the life of somebody that they know, has been changed dramatically by their dog.

The deadline is Monday and five dogs will be shortlisted.

To nominate, e-mail details of why you think the dog should win to Andrea Peters at, fill in the form at or write to Andrea Peters, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB.
