With Crufts less than 2 weeks away, I am looking forward to my very first visit to the greatest dog show on earth. Following Josef’s sudden although not unexpected death just before Christmas, I am tasked with continuing his work and will do my best to honour his memory with my repawts.
I am very proud that my company, Natural Instinct, are official sponsors of Crufts this year, and I expect to make several appearances on their stand. They adore me, so I predict many hugs and of course, whitebait treats! Now in that respect, I am exactly like Josef!
I have had a quick look at what other interesting things will be there, and plan to investigate “All About Dogs”, hoping to see some or all of the six Dachshund varieties, plus many more.
As a girl, and not as food crazed as was Josef, I will research the latest fashions in canine clothes, accessories and plush beds and bedding. I’m really interested in seeing Dogrobes bespoke red, charcoal grey and white tartan designed just for dogs. Of course other canine fashion houses are available and I will report on as many as I can.
Being a rescued puppy farm breeding bitch myself, saved by my Mum from that awful place 7½ years ago, I have a keen interest in rescue charities and will track down as many as possible to keep you updated on their work.
This is quite an ambitious list but as a dachshund, with only 2″ legs, I am ideally suited to get the lowdown on everything I see! Being chauffeured in my trusty Bentley, I will cover as much ground as I can to bring you the fullest possible report
If you see me, please stop us to have a word, and offer some much needed encouragement for my very first Crufts assignment.
