Crufts 2013


Hello and welcome to our report of Crufts 2013

We had to get up very early to get here on time

We were joined on the stand by Freja and Korki



It was very busy all day

Being stroked, and questions to answer

Highlights of the day were, meeting Becca and Mike from
Great to met you both.

Also Eileen from
 We hope to meet up with her again soon for a walk with Annie

Tess had her fair share of working

At the blink of the eye it was all over, a very busy but enjoyable day for all of us.

Time to catch up on some sleep, while Mom shows you the photos she took on Sunday

George and Tess, We are very confident you represent your breed well! I bet there are lots of people in your area looking for a good breeder!

Love all the pictures of good looking doggies!

I really enjoyed seeing the different breeds. Thanks!

You two did a great job representing your breed. Thanks to your mom for showing us around a bit.

George and Tess-
What a show. Of course, we think you 2 should win "Best in Show"!

Love that Rasta Dog :D

We know all the Wallace and Gromit films, Love-Love-Love them.
So you must have gotten a 'Were Rabbit' or a sheep from the 'Close Shave'!
Show and tell now...

George and Tess how lovely it was to see you and your folks on Saturday.
I hope you had a Grand Day Out :-)
You certainly did a grand job!

Lovely photos from your Mom on Sunday.
Is that Rolo's Mom and Star the greyhound by any chance?

Can't wait to see what Mom bought and I didn't buy a show guide I'm afraid, so looking forward to next month's The Tess

We'll have to arrange another walk with you sometime soon, that would be grand.
I just love your photo under the link to my post ;-)

Annie sends her love xx

What a lot of doggies. You must have worked really hard. No wonder you had a sleep on the way home. Elsie is SO not well behaved enough to go to Crufts. Glad you had a lovely day. xx

Brilliant photo portraits of all those dogs from your Mum George & Tess and I'm sure you were the stars of the Welsh Terrier stand :-) My peeps were sorry not to see you at Crufts but maybe another day. Looking forward to Tess's update soon - woofs and licks from Magic xx

meowmeowmans said...

Whoa! That was a brilliant report, George! Crufts is amazing ... just look at all those dogs.

Becca and Mike said...

Meeting you both (and your mum and dad) was the highlight of my day. You did the welsh terrier breed proud and I'm glad you both enjoyed your days at Crufts.

Maxmom said...

Oh wow, thank you for taking the trouble to post all these fabulous pictures. "Crufts" is on my bucket list - how I would love to visit one day. I must tell you...
Lexi's Great Aunt (her Granny's sister), "Callie" won BOB for the Golden Retriever bitches, 2013. Everyone was so excited to hear this news at this end of the world :).
I'm glad you had a fabulous time...can you see me turning green with envy?
Sending lotsaluv to you all
