We had an amazing show at Crufts which turned into a huge social event on the Charley Chau stand! It was fantastic to meet so many of our FB friends in person for the first time, as well as catch up with old friends and meet lots of new people!
And of course, this was the Crufts when international stardom called for Charley, Anna, Tino and Theo! We had a blast and can't wait to do it all again next year!
"Pupped" arriving at Crufts - Tino, Anna, Theo & Charley ended up in editorial features all over the world including the UK's The Independent (above), The Daily Telegraph and the BBC Website as well as USA Today and they made Photo of the Day on The Daily Beast in the States!
A family re-union for our Charley with two of his litter brothers coming to see him on the stand! On the left is Milo and right is Charlie Brown. Handsome boys!
Merlin came to see us because he wanted a new Faux-Fur Blanket to take home to his sister Emilie. *MWAH* !
Great to catch up with Alex from Barkarama and to meet Basil in person - he's adorable and is terribly well mannered - he didn't even get cross when Theo decided to hump him :-\
Anna's official job on the stand was to "supervise".
Charley & Theo - the meet and greet team!
Tino said "stuff the jobs, I'm going to sit here and enjoy the show!"
The lovely Jacqui Watts - Comptroller of the Household for Sir Harold JRT, one of our Jack Russell customers (see below). Thank you so much Sir Harold for sending Jacqui to us with your delicious cupcakes! Yummy!
Beenleigh the Pointer: "I am not leaving unless you order the bed."
The party side of Crufts not often seen - an obedience exhibitor on the benches waiting to compete in the ring.
London / Surrey based Ian Morrison from Dogstar Photography hard at work!
Camilla Ainsworth of Tuff Mutts and Powderpuffs - this girl is scary brainy (degree in Zoologoy, PHD in Molecular Biology, former Primate Keeper at London Zoo, Vet Nurse) and she is now offering a home grooming service in the Evesham area! More info: at www.tuffmuttsandpowderpuffs.co.uk.
After just two days on the stand the boys were being a bit slow getting up in the morning!
And by the end of the four days Theo was pooped!
A huge thank you to Claudia Monticello for this delicious Panettone that we saved until we got home as an end of show treat! We have the BEST customers!!!
See you all again next year, or see our Show Dates and come and see us sooner!
