Crufts is on at the moment. It's normally on the BBC but they, and a number of other companies, are boycotting the show due to issues regarding inbreeding of dogs.

I've been watching a bit on Crufts TV. They have the Gundog judging later. I'm going to make Willow watch it to show her that all cockers are not "that" mad. :lol:

oh thanks for that Dawn, i love watching it. I agree with the inbreeding thing but i'm a bit of a hypocrit with Charlie :sorry:

We deliberately didn't go to a professional breeder with Willow. We found someone who had let their family pet have a litter and we checked the breeding line carefully. We know the owners loved their dog as a member of the family and not as an asset for profit.

Obedience is on right now. :D

do you know what would happen if we entered a ring? :lol:

Dawn
07-03-2009, 06:16 PM
Probably the same as if I let Willow in the ring. Peter Purves would be going :mental:

Oh I wish my dog would walk to heel even remotely like that. :sigh:

See our version of Crufts would be much better TV viewing. We could have a "steal the smelly sock from the laundry pile " competition. :laugh:

we could have the willow and archie and charlie chasing Michelles cats - :thumbsup: and all to disney music

good thinking, was thinking tortoise but couldn't work out how to incorporate them.

Anyone can bring their pets to practice, 7.30 on a tues evening at the village hall :thumbsup:

Secrets Crufts - all animals welcome, pedigree and training not required. :lol:

I'm liking it.

Dawn
07-03-2009, 06:35 PM
Trouble with watching Crufts is I always end up wanting 6 more dogs. :sigh:

I will bring Bea the cat.... she has BIG attitude issues.....

Dawn
07-03-2009, 07:13 PM
Excellent. I'll bring my parent's 3 Irish setters - Bea can torment them. :lol:

Dawn

I don't know what this show is but I always feel bad that our poor dog is a complete mess. She doesn't know how to behave in public, she wants to go lick people to death. She can't sit in the car with the window down cause she would jump out. Oh well we love her.

Dawn
07-03-2009, 07:26 PM
Nope I've decided that now I must have a clumber spaniel.

I love gundogs. :sigh:

Claire

i know how you feel, Just after Jon bought his car we went to the coast and stopped to have lunch, the tailgate window opens up so Jon tied his lead to something inside the car and we went to sit down at a table outside the front of the restaurant. We order and the next thing i know the dog is hanging by his collar out the tailgate window :mental: stupid dog had tried to jump out!!! He is getting a bit better with age though and will do just about anything for cheese.

Willow knows the sound of the cheese door in the fridge being opened and shut and silently appears behind you. :mental:

The cats all know when a can of tuna is being opened and they all clamor around meowing their lungs out like they have never eaten before.

When I had Jessie and Tink piggies living indoors they would know the sound of a knife on the chopping board and would start wheeking for cucumber. :lol:

Archie too! He squashes himself between me and the counter if I am using cheese on the off chance a crumb hits the floor :lol:

We should definitely have a secrets animal show - would make great viewing :lol:

The dog next door has moved... don't think he could take anymore of Bea's tormenting. She loves cheese too and plays fetch. She thinks she's a dog and wags her tail like one all the time.

Dawn

I'm supposed to doing the ironing but I keep having to watch just one more cute dog go over the little jumps. :sigh:

She thinks she's a dog and wags her tail like one all the time.

And Willow appears to think she is a cat sometimes... currently she is curled up, trying to sleep, on top of Dawn's ironing pile. She give's dawn a "look" every time she attempts to remove an item from the pile to iron :)

She has been known to get up on the back of the sofa, and lay stretched out along the back, against the wall, for a nap! :lol:

Dawn

The Cinammon Trust made me cry.
