Crufts is fast approaching and the excitement is still building. Thank goodness the weather will be a little better by the end of the week. On Saturday many Papillons and Phalenes will descend on the NEC from all corners of the UK and other countries. We hope you all have a fun day, good luck and enjoy the shopping!

One result from the weekend as the majority of shows have been cancelled or postponed. At Wath & West Melton open show on Saturday 3rd March Ken Fulton’s Lottie won BOB under Judge Barry Blunden who stood in for Jon Caton, who was unable to drive three and a half hours to the show due to the severe weather. Jon sends his apologies to those who entered under him. Lottie also won Toy Group 2 under Judge John Geraghty. Well done!
