Alfie at Crufts

If your Schnauzer is Best in Show at the county fair or CRUFTS, share it with all of us. You will find show listings along with results from the various dog shows around the country. You will more than likely spot a few members in the show ring.

Alfie at Crufts

Post by AB2012 »

This is me and Alfie at Crufts- he only came 4th in his class but we enjoyed our day so much! We only bought him as a pet, so anything we do in the show ring is a bonus. It was enough just to qualify and have our day out at Crufts showing off what I think is the best dog in the world!!!
And a couple more:

He's gorgeous and so was the breed winner. We thought he should have won Utility group. And what do you mean "only came 4th" that's fantastic :-bd

Well done to both of you (*) . I was there watching (not in your photos though) - shame I didn't know which class he was in. I really enjoyed the day and specially enjoyed looking at all the gorgeous minis and standards :)

You both did great! Not everyone qualifies for crufts, and Alfie is still only young isn't he?

No my 2 are Schabaal, but they go to Di for grooming. My mum had a Benninghof boy, Henry, he sadly passed away last August, he was 16 and a 1/2!!! which was a fantastic age to reach. Mum has recently adopted, who I think is probably your Alfie's sister :) looking at his birthday! I thought they looked alike!
