Thread: 82nd cocker spaniel champoinship cancelled

    82nd cocker spaniel champoinship cancelled

    Just came back from a short 2nd day at the championship held at queensbury estate Dumfries.
    Cancelled due to one poor spectator who collapsed and died. Thoughts go out to his family.
    Committee decided to stop the trial . A very brave effort by all who helped to resuscitate the gentleman for over an hour untill air ambulance arrived.

    That must have been a shock for everyone around Adrian. Not good. As you say, thoughts go out to his family.

    Happened many years ago on an estate I used to beat on (Whitburgh) but on the day in question I actually couldn't make it. Heard all about it from friends and like you describe efforts to keep him going till ambulance arrived were commendable...

    When its your going to go that's how I want to, not to know a thing about it. I know too many people now who have had a stroke/heart attack and they never get over it and I'm sure it just wears them down over a few years. still a troubling time for his family

    Sad news. At the end of the day to go quickly watching or doing something you love isn't a bad way to end things in my book.
