A BUNDLE of energy called Chrissie was impressing judges everywhere she went 25 years ago and coming home with prizes from a series dog shows throughout the north of England.

The Barrow King Charles cavalier spaniel was only a six-month-old puppy but in the past three months had won 18 rosettes in shows.

The Mail, on May 12 in 1994, noted: "Proud owners Janet and Tony Macheta are thrilled with their pet's success."

Janet, of Stoneleigh Close, Barrow, said: "We never expected her to win so many prizes.

"She loves doing shows as well - if she didn't we wouldn't force her.

"At the last show she gave the judge a big lick on the nose."
