Update Feb 2020 :

Dane of The Year show dated 1961, 1963, 1971 & 1977

Do YOU or anyone you know, have a catalogue from the above DOTY shows ?

If so, would you be kind enough to donate the copy to Rick Day at the Great Dane Club of Wales.

Rick is building a library of catalogues of this prestigious show but is missing these 4 years.

One final request, Rick is missing a photo from the BIS winner of 1963 AMALIA OF ARANTON ( brindle ).

If anyone can help with any of the above, we would be most grateful as this is a hugely important piece of work.

Many thanks
