A history of spinning
Do watch this classic footage from 24 years ago that shows that the KC were still spinning away and making inconsequential tweaks to breed standards all those years ago in response to hard to ignore criticisms! And look at that Bulldog and then look at the modern ones on the Pedigree Dogs Exposed clips from a couple of blogs ago. That 1980s breed standard revision certainly didn't help did it? The 1980s dog looks if anything much healthier - although the sound of him trying to breathe under the studio lights still disturbs me a great deal.
And wasn't Simon the vet ahead of his time!
