Countdown to Crufts

The Crufts passes arrived yesterday in the post. It makes everything rather real, all of a sudden. In a mere 17 days’ time, I shall be in the ring at Crufts.

I am one of 39 Welsh Terriers competing, and I’m under no illusions of being awarded any success. I’m just happy to be part of the greatest dog show on Earth!

I’ve been under daily grooming supervision, and yesterday, for the first time since September, we went to Ringcraft class again, just so I could go through the motions of being on display. I love school. I really do. It was full of ladies this time! I decided I’d give the judge a kissy and spend my time wagging at all the lady dogs, like the tart I am. Mum did a lot of eye-rolling.

17 days… Eeek!

All the Gear, No Idea?

At these shows, we’ve seen a lot of “kit”. ¬†We’ve adapted out kit list to make sure we have everything we need, made sure it’s top notch to last a long time into the future but Mummy is in marketing… she LOVES a bit of ‘stash’…

So this happened…

 

Now, the crate cover is a practical thing – it shields from the sun and the rain and offers security – nobody knows what’s in the crate so it reduces the theft potential and mummy can put her bags and valuables inside and lock it when we are in the ring and nobody will know her phone might be inside…

The gilet (and jacket) – pure vanity!!!
