Crufts 125 year anniversary celebration is just one day away!
We are really excited! Our Mum, Dee is going to the NEC on Friday and Saturday and she’ll be blogging from there about Crufts, for us.
If you’re going too don’t forget you can share your experiences on social media using #Crufts125, us modern day dogs has to be very media savvy now, doesn’t we?
Where would you head first?
Shopping? We’ve given Mum strict instructions that she must come home with some treats that we has never tried before. Mum says don’t forget to take a pencil and paper or a smart phone so you can make a note of which stalls are where. You can visit the Crufts online market place to see which stalls will you like the sound of before you go too.
Discover Dogs? To meet some breeds you don’t know much about?
The Arena is chocked full of exciting events and finals like flyball, agility and Obedience displays – but the obedience has it’s own ring so don’t forget to check that out too! There’s so much to do you really need to go for more than one day!
Picture shows Flyball Team Quarter Finals (Thursday 05.03.15), the first day of Crufts 2015, at the NEC Birmingham.
Of course, if you’re rooting for a particular dog or breed to win Best in Show you’ll need to know which day they are on… Shelties are in the Pastoral. There’s a lot to do to win. First you have to qualify, then you have to win your class, then your breed, then your whole group just to get through to the final judging! Those show dogs sure have a lot of stamina!

As for me? Well, Mum did think about taking me with her and Crufts very kindly gave me a ticket, but since we live so far away Mum thought it best I stayed at home with Grandpawents because I would only be complaining and wondering why I didn’t get to has a go doing all the fun things the competing dogs be doing. (and Arran be too nervy to be in such a busy place)
So I will stay at home and dream of joining in with the agility, or maybe dancing with Richard Curtis in the Freestyle competition.
I casnot wait to see all my new treats that Mum brings home.
