Yesterday Leigh went off to Crufts on the train to take some more pictures of the dogs and events. She met lots of new doggy friends like this Hovawart and a Sloughi:
And these sweet little dogs called Sealyhams who are an endangered breed:
Their faces are a bit like schnauzers:
At Discover Dogs there are some of many breeds from around the world including a number of dogs like the Sealyham which are quite rare or becoming so. Even the English Setter is now not very often seen here. This one was sleeping off all the excitement:
There was even a Giant Schnauzer lounging in the Working Dogs section:
But talking of schnauzers there were schnauzers of all kinds and not all of them were real!
This one is a plant pot holder!
These were just hanging around :-)
and this one was advertising microchipping your pet.
There were also lots of events with dogs - like Great Dane Basketball:
These guys were waiting their turn to get into the game.
And there was agility for lots of little and medium sized dogs:
This sheltie is getting ready to go over the jumps and the boxer is thinking he'll sit this one out:
Of course there were lots of stalls too selling treats and other doggy items. These were very scary:
but this was more interesting - a stall selling ice-cream sorbets for dogs!
Sadly it wasn't possible to bring back frozen desserts from Birmingham as it was a 4 hour train journey but we do still have our jerky and tripe treats to munch. And I nearly forgot to mention that Leigh met Sampson & Dante & Daisy Boo's Mum there too and they did a bit of doggy shopping for us all. Well I'll be back next week to tell you about the competition for all my bloggy friends with a special prize from Crufts to be won and Leigh will be posting more about my progress on the puppy front :-)
