Crufts – 6 weeks to go
Crufts 2012 is only 6 weeks away and, no doubt, all the Wire Dachshund exhibitors will be hoping their hounds will have just the right amount of coat on the day. The challenge is “did you strip its coat out too soon, or too late?” Of course, it’s easy for those with Smoothies; a quick rub down with a brush is all they’ll need and they’ll be fine. I mustn’t forget to mention the glamour-kids: the Long-haireds will be turned out to perfection.
If you’re not showing, but already planning your day out, there will be lots to see and do. Whichever day you visit you can get a “fix” of almost any of the 200 recognised breeds at the Discover Dogs area of the show. The Kennel Club is expecting around 28,000 healthy, happy dogs over the four days of the show which takes place from 8 – 11 March 2012 at the NEC, Birmingham.
In the run-up to Crufts I’ll be writing a series of Blog posts about the event and there will be an opportunity for some lucky reader to win free tickets to the show.
More on that later…
