More Fun at Crufts

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 :-) 


  1. Wow!! All these look so fascinating (especially the dog-friendly ice-cream sorbet ^^)! Sure looks like you had an awesome time!

    Woofs to you,

  2. That looks like fun for the pooches and the peeps! At least Leigh brought you home some treats - that I agree with. Mum was all agog at the schnauzer pot plant holder and wishes she could have one too! Knowing her she wouldn't want to dirty it and therefore a plant would never go into it! BOL!

    Hope you are feeling OK, Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  3. Look at all the different breeds of doggies! What fun!! We would have loved to watch Great Dane Basketball!! BOL!!

  4. Wow, what a great showing of schnauzer products! Dog shows are fun.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  5. Wow you got lots of great pictures! Mums camera died when she tried to use it later...oh dear, she did bring us loads of fun things back though!

    Mum said it was great meeting you, and she is really excited to hear about Magic's pups!


  6. Hope she brought home that schnauzer plant pot! What great things to look at including the dogs.

    XXXoOO Daisy, Bella &roxy

    SHE's always wanted a Sealyham.

  7. schnauzer pot plant XD! looks like a great day out and the sealyhams are cute little ones !

  8. They sure have lots of neat stuff at Crufts! I love the plant pot holder!

    1. It looks like there was a lot of exciting stuff going on at Crufts. Too bad you couldn't get any doggy sorbet that sounds terrific!

  10. We had a great time on Sunday, but its sooo big didn't get around much of it.
    Mom say's she will go for a day by herself next year, she would have done that this year if they didn't have a wedding to go to.
    Have a good week
    See Yea George xxx
