Our Judges are :
Our good friend and supporter, actor Cameron Jack, who has just completed filming Wandering Rose. He has recently appeared in The Dark Knight Rises. Some of you may know him from The Bill; Waterloo Road; Quick Cuts; You, Me & Them; Man Down; He Kills Coppers; Doctors; Taggart; Puny Humans; The Stephen Lawrence Murder Trial; The Vanishing Man and Harry’s Mad.
The brave and wonderful Pelucchi, who has supported all our our online fund-raising and events for a while now. He is a 3-year-old tripawd Yorkshire Terrier, who was born with a badly deformed front leg . When he reached 6 months old his Vet decided it would be kinder to amputate his leg.
Pelucchi says “Three weeks after my amputation I woke up with a smile on my face, a wag in my tail and a spring in my step and I haven’t stopped since! I worked hard and passed my Kennel Club Bronze and Silver Good Citizen Awards, tried my paw at Rally Obedience and now attend Agility lessons at weekends if I’m not off to a dog show or off on one of my charity walks. I love ballies and will do anything for them, I usually find old tatty ballies out on my walks.
Last year I completed 14.6 miles in aid of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. I intend to do the same walk later this year. I have already completed a 9 km walk for Thames Hospice care, a 6 mile walk for The Deaf Dog Network, as well as a 5 km Race for Life which I am proud to say I was all in pink! As well as taking part in charity & fund-raising, I attend dog shows to support other charities and also enter online photo shows – every little helps. ”
Our next judge is the wonderful Bubbly Lorraine Chase :
Lorraine shot to fame in the Campari adverts as a cheeky cockney (and still is cheeky today). She may be better known to you all for her parts in Emmerdale; My Family; Doctors and I’m a Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here. Lorraine adores dogs and supports several dog rescues. She has recently returned from a trip to Bulgaria where she personally rescued some very vulnerable dogs.
Our final judge is Rachael Millar, acting editor of Dogs Today magazine. She shares her life with rescue collie cross Mia and spends her days campaigning for a better world for dogs
