Most soul fans know that the REAL THING lead singer CHRIS AMOO is also a top dog breeder! Thirty odd years ago one of his dogs won the prestigious title of ‘Best In Show’ at Crufts and at this year’s canine love fest at the Birmingham NEC, Chris was on the podium again!

His Irish Wolfhound, Paris, won the  best hound category  and thus qualified for one of just seven places in the Best in Show final. Sadly,  Paris didn’t win the ultimate accolade but he and Chris were still winners. Paris  did, however, win Channel 4’s people’s vote.

 Chris said: “We bred Paris and he is a very special dog – the type of dog that is one in a million. We are so proud of him!  “When the judge points to you, you can’t really believe it and it only starts to sink in when you are doing your lap of honour. I won Best in Show here at Crufts 36 years ago, and I just can’t stop smiling! I’ve never lost my passion or enthusiasm for this hobby, after all these years – I don’t take holidays because for me, showing dogs, that is my pleasure.”
