Celebrating 125 of years of Crufts.... and a giveaway!




Its that time of year again that every dog owner loves, the world largest dog show, Crufts. Hooman will always attend  the show year each and come home with a truck load of goodies for me, but this year the team at the Kennel Club have very kindly invited me too. How cool is that? 

Its my job to give you humans the low down on the event as well as take plenty of pictures whilst I am there, and make plenty of trouble in the press office. 

Every dog wants to be best in show, but for those dogs that haven't are like me and prefer a more laid back lifestyle their are still plenty of things for you at Crufts too -

This cute little video explains the history of Crufts. 
The kennel club is celebrating 125 years this year and wants to make sure it the biggest and bestest dog show around. To kick off the celebrating they have very kindly sent us a set of tickets for a giveaway. They are valid for one day of your choice. You will need to purchase a extra tickets for the best in show event as those are sold separately. The giveaway closes on Monday 30 February at midnight. Good luck. 




I hope to meet you there so that Lottie can give you lots of cuddles.
