28 January 2017 BGV Club honours Prof Peter Bedford.
AT AN EYE TESTING SESSION in Essex on 28 January, Club Chairman Paul Osbourne and Secretary Linda Skerritt presented Prof Peter Bedford with a plaque to thank him for his unswerving work over the years in eye testing PBGVs with the primary aim of early detection of POAG.
Prof Bedford subsequently wrote "Please thank the club members for the magnificent plaque that I received on Saturday. It really was a complete surprise but all I can say is that the work I did needed and got really excellent cooperation from your members and, without that, we would still be struggling to find a DNA test. For me it was 18 years of meeting nice people with nice dogs, with the reward being the eventual eradication of POAG from your breed".
