Word-full Wednesday: Crufts Eve Links and Leads

ellie dreams of Crufts

It’s seems like ages since we started the competition to win some of Ellie’s tickets on Facebook and gave them away. But now Crufts is upon us! Tomorrow marks the start of the four-day spectacular and we cannot wait. Although Ellie won’t be joining us of course, she still has dreams of what it would be like to win something at this giant celebration of dogs. We both agree she would easily walk away with the doggy dancing crown. Ellie does the best pirouette you ever did see, and we WILL show you one day (furry promise). Myfie wonders if there’s an eating competition, and naturally Millie thinks she’d take Best in Show! What about you? Which prize would be yours for the taking, do let us know!

Anyway, since the pups do miss out on the actual event, like many of you who are from overseas, I thought it might be handy to give you some links. Of course, I will be going, but only for one day so I too will want to know what’s going on for the rest of the time.

My freind and I (this is an actual human! I do know some, honest) have chosen to attend on Friday… for, well, no particular reason. Crufts is a great days entertainment whenever you can make it. If there is anything you would like to know about more specifically, or anything you want us to check out please do let me know in the comments. I will be most happy to. For example, Myfie has asked me to take some pictures of some cute looking girls. Well, he actually wants me to find him a wife, because apparently these posh pups like a bit of ruff! But yeah, whatever Myfie, I can’t do magic.


The action from the arena will be live streamed every day on YouTube, Huzzah! The arena is where all the ‘activities’ take place, the doggy dancing, the flyball and agility, demonstrations, breed judging… everything! Click on that there cute little picture link above, and be taken straight to the Crufts channel, subscribe and you will be able to see more than those of us who are attending will. Oh there’s such a sweet video right there on the home page, it gave me goosebumps!

For those of us in the UK, More 4 will be covering the event LIVE as usual with the lovely, Claire Balding hosting. You can also watch OnDemand and More4+1 should you miss it first time around.
I’m not sure if those outside of the UK can access this content, but what I think you WILL be able to do is vote in the ‘Friends for Life’ comp. You can view the entrants stories on the Crufts YouTube channel if you have difficulty doing so via the More 4 website, but cast your vote from here: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/crufts#vote – please have tissues at the ready for these beautiful stories.

Information as it happens will also be rolled out on the Crufts website: http://www.crufts.org.uk/
And if you can stand to listen to me bleating on about it, I will also be sharing information and fun bits and pieces via our social media channels 🙂

Lastly, I would love you to check out this very informative, and very serious press conference…

… My money’s on Fritz, what about yours?
Thanks for battling through this post, if we’ve missed anything please let us know!

    ***paw kissess*** Siddhartha Henry an LadyMum xxxx

    • Oh Siddhartha and lovely Mum… It’s very sad indeed, there seems to be a lot of sadness associated with Crufts this year 😦 They believe the Setter, called Jagger was maliciously poisoned by being fed contaminated meat whilst unattended at Crufts. Mostly it is all speculation at the minute as they are awaiting the tests to confirm stuff, but it doesn’t look good! Somebody, intentionally or not (and it really does look to be so) killed this poor doggy with their actions and I only hope they find the source and punish effectively. It won’t bring poor Jagger back, but some justice for his family is needed!
      Hugs, Carrie & Pups x<3x
