    Today is the last day of Crufts - the biggest dog show in the UK. Today was the turn of the working and pastoral groups and so of course we made a bee-line for the Boxer rings.

    Oh heaven! dozens and dozens of beautiful Boxers everywhere we looked. Odd thing I noticed though was that the majority appeared to be brindle - much fewer reds there.

    As we also have a Rottweiler we visited those rings too.

    We watched agility and good citizen dogs and wandered around all the stalls.

    It was a great day out - quite tiring though.

    The finals are being shown on TV tonight and so we will be sure to watch that. I wonder if a Boxer will be in the final line up.

    Well the winner of the Boxers was a red/white - so for all that the brindle was in the majority a red won the breed class.

    Now Best in Show has just been judged and the winner was a cute little Norfolk Terrier, runner up was a beautiful English Setter. Other finalists were a Shiba Inu, Belgian Shepherd, Giant Schnauzer, chihuahua, Beagle. Personally I liked the Giant Schnauzer best.

    I love Giants Schnauzers. I saw one for the first time being walked at the park. Wow. They are beautiful. I wanted to hug it like I would a stuffed animal.

    Yeah, we went to Crufts on Sunday too, what a show. Again, we headed straight for Hall 5 Rings 29 & 30 to see all those boxers. It made us want to get Harley a little brother (possibly call him Davidson :) )

    After seeing all the Boxers we headed straight for the stalls. Harley got a new collar and lead, loads of treats and a new bed. He is one spoilt boy and the credit card was red hot from use.

    Great show and look forward to next years.
