Crufts is finally here, We had a good entry for our judge Mr S Rann of, 11 males & 18 females, making 29 Dogs and 30 Entries. This years Crufts was extremely busy, the benching areas were difficult to manoeuvre with the usual trolleys and crates. Even getting to the entrance of the ring was at times difficult.
Stephen Rann found his principal winners in,
Nosferatu’s No Uchimura Go, owned by Tina Thomas who won Post Graduate, Best dog and Best of breed.
Kenichi No Mitsuru Go Charadon, owned by Charlotte Andrews, Won Open and Reserve Best Dog
