Jagger dies after returning home from Crufts. Jaggers’s co-owners do not believe the other competitors poisoned him, but they do think that the poisoner was someone with a grudge against dogs in general or the dog show in particular. A post-mortem examination finds poisoned pieces of meat inside his stomach.
He was a typical Irish Setter, totally trustworthy and so loved. We are devastated…We can’t and we won’t think that this was the act of another exhibitor. If we thought this, we couldn’t go on, and the last 30 years would be a complete waste. So I ask all of you to unite in finding the perpetrator who did this.
Authorities haven’t, as of yet, been asked to investigate.
