Personally though, I think Best of Show is a weird concept. I can understand the agility section, heel work etc, because the dogs are doing something active and they look as if they are having fun, but poncing around the ring doing nothing but basically showing off your fur style and how you walk is just well strange. Another thing one of the finalists had a very sloped back, don't tell me that is natural. Plus there were quite a few fatties in the ring .!
The crufts presenter discussed with a kennel club representative if hybrid dogs ie labradoodles would every be accepted in crufts. How snooty is that, I don't think any self respecting doodle would want to ponce around a ring anyway. Personally I have better things to do than take a bath every week or even more and have my fur brushed every time I move, no, no wouldn't suit me !
Lastly what is it with the ridiculous show names is that really necessary an example 'Belleville honeynut crunch' sounds like a breakfast cereal not a name of a dog. I mean to say you got to laugh,
Thought I would make a couple up myself.....
