Members of the Pennine and Scottish with their attended The National Pet Show at the NEC, Birmingham over the weekend of 20/21st September to represent the French Bulldog breed.

Crowds were thick around the stand wanting to hold and strike the dogs, as well as ask numerous questions, many concerned with the best way to find a healthy puppy.

It was a long weekend for both dogs and handlers but very worthwhile.

Many Thanks to the M&NCFBC for the loan of their display boards.
