As I couldn't go to Crufts being in a delicate way of things - as you know - Leigh had to stay behind too to look after me. So Judith took Aoife along with a friend from her work called Nicole and they have provided some pictures for you to see Aoife's big day out. Actually it all started for Aoife the night before - and not very well from her point of view!
Poor Aoife - at least I missed out on the shower!
The next morning they set off at 5.45 am to go to the NEC and it was busy! There were all sorts of different dogs there not only being shown but displaying their agility skills, their police work and their talent for dancing! There was plenty of grooming going on:
from fluffy white Bichon Frise with lots of fur to ...
Chinese Crested with not so much!
In the show ring there were Yorkshire Terriers being shown on their boxes:
and Aoife - who didn't need a box to show off!
Well in the end she got Very Highly Commended which is 5th - she is still a baby though and hopefully she will do better when she's grown up a bit. Anyway she cane home with this certificate so we're very proud of her anyway:
And even more importantly she persuaded Leigh & Nicole to go shopping for TREATS! There were so many food stalls there selling food for dogs - I wish I could have been there! There were even doggy gateaux:
And they brought us home some lamb jerky:
and some tripe treats:
And this is me waiting patiently for my treat:
Well I'll be back with more news from Crufts this weekend. And if anyone still wants to go you can get tickets by clicking on the link at the top of this post - or just go along - there is so-o much to see and lots of doggy treats :-)
