Just wondered if anyone else was going next Sunday?
I'm going with a friend who is showing a whippet, so will be round the whippet benches most of the day having a picnic and glass of wine. I'll post the bench number later in the week if anyone is going and wants to say hello.

Not quite Sarah!
I'll be there tomorrow and Saturday (Discover Dogs) and Sunday - showing two Cesky Terriers, then covering the terrier group for Dog World (write-up only, the photos are someone else's problem Smile)

We'll probably be having a picnic - and maybe some Czech beer as well - if you can get over.

Hi Sheila, I'll try to pop over & see you. Which ring and class are you in? We're in early as friend is 3rd class of the day, but not sure what time, as there are usually hundreds of whippets! It goes a bit faster if we're showing her greyhounds as there are not so many.

Hi Sarah,
Hall 1, ring 3. We're third in, and my bitch is in Open, so I guess we're talking about five minutes before they call the Terrier Group. Sad

I'll be on our Discover Dogs stand until about noon.

You can't miss me - I'll be the one trying to talk French, German, Czech and Dutch all at the same time Wink

Hi Sheila, I'll try to get over to see you, might not see you show, as looks like we will be doing that at the same time.

Quote from Crufts spokesperson:

Quote:"And these are three different judges, all with their own opinions on a particular breed - because judging is subjective even though it's done against a breed standard.."

Applies to judging photos also, I think?

Alot of judging is done by looking up the lead to see who's showing as well. Well that's sometimes my opinion when watching anyway.
Jas, does apply to judging photo's as well and why I don't belong to a club now.

not many camera club members attempt poisoning though as a means of winning.
