Overheard before, after and during the show
No dog show is larger nor more controversial than Crufts. Always full of drama, there are 21,000 individual stories of success and disappointment - never more poignant than so than in the agility ring. Here is a selection of comments overheard before, after and during Crufts 2003. If you have any comments you would like to add the the pot, send them to Agilitynet.
Does anybody else agree with me that there ought to be
some coverage of the juniors competing at Crufts on the TV doing Agility. After all these kids
are tomorrows champs.
Just come back from my first ever visit to Crufts and I
loved every minute of it - even if my bank balance didn't agree.
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes at Crufts. They
obviously worked as we were very lucky with our results!
We understand the secret of Mary Ray's success in the Obedience was her footwear. On the second day when others were scuffling on the 'long' astro-turf, she put on her dancing shoes!
When asked about her Daddy's run, baby Ashleigh Derrett
said zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! She had slept through it.
At last we can run our dogs and show the public how
agility dogs should be run.
Loved the Astro Turfy stuff!
No, Tracey Hanreck hasn't been overdoing the choccies.
She's expecting a major mini 'event' in early August. Does this count as 'double handling?'
Did everyone see the agility coverage on BBC 2 last
night? Exactly... there was none.
With a first and a third (Louise) and a fifth (Anne) in the Mini/Maxi Pairs, you could say it was a very good day for the Challis household. Peter van Dongen
