Rare dog breeds - all over Hyde Park

Reading a short piece in that esteemed journal the Veterinary Record tonight and saw that the otterhound is the officially the UK's rarest dog breed, with only 21 puppes being registered so far this year.

Closer to home is the Cardigan Welsh Corgi (we have one at the clinic) with 89 and the Coton de tulear (we have 3, called Magic, Pants and Knickers) at 140, up from just 10 last year.

Pugs, oh dear the pugs, the breed that surely makes their owners laugh more than any other breed, had 5726 registrations this year, a staggering 557% increase on last year. I thought we were seeing more than ever...
