What an exciting Crufts for our breed.
This year was my first time as a spectator at Crufts. It was lovely to get up at a reasonable time, enjoy an hotel breakfast, room service of course, then wander down the path to hall 5 from the hotel. There was a slightly different layout this year which meant it was possible for plenty of people to camp near the ring and watch without leaving their dogs. I hope next year will be the same.
