Crufts 2015: Win Some Tickets, Yay!

Crufts tickets graphics

It’s that time of the year again! The time of year where I start getting ridiculously excited and practically foam at the mouth. No, it’s not Christmas, but it does begin with the letter ‘C’… and it’s all about dogs so thinking about it, it might actually be my favourite time of the year! Yep, it’s CRUFTS! Ta Dah!

Well, it’s the run up to it at least, because the actual dates are Thursday 5, March – Sunday 8, March.

Crufts, as always is held at the Birmingham N.E.C. We’re lucky enough to be able to pop along ourselves again this year and even better than that… we get to invite you too! Some of you, at least, four to be exact.
Ellie is kindly offering to share a pair of her tickets with two lucky winners.

HERE ARE THE DETAILS OF THE COMPETITION:

✭ Competition entry is over on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/PawedCouture and the post is pinned to the top!
✭ Winners will be drawn on Sunday 22, February
✭ I will notify winners via Facebook and will need to obtain a postal address
✭ Tickets will be posted by Ellie the next day
✭ Due to timescale, I’m afraid this draw is for UK residents only (unless you happen to know you will be in the UK and able to attend on the dates AND you have a UK address for us to send tickets to).

HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE ACTUAL TICKETS:

✭ The competition is for a PAIR of tickets
✭ The tickets cannot be re-sold
✭ The tickets are valid for one day of your choosing from the four.
✭ If you choose to go on the Sunday, you cannot use this ticket to view ‘Best in Show’ in the arena, further costs will apply should you wish to see this. The ticket IS valid for the rest of the spectacular that is Crufts, though.
✭ You can’t take your own pooch I’m afraid 😦

HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE SHOW:

Crufts takes place from 5 – 8 March 2015 at The NEC, Birmingham
Show opening times each day: 8:15 – 19:30

2015 Group Schedule (who’s being judged on that day):
✭ Thursday 5, March – Gundog
✭ Friday 6, March – Working and Pastoral
✭ Saturday 7, March – Terrier and Hound
✭ Sunday 8, March – Toy and Utility

But, of course, Crufts is about way more than judging breed standards these days. It’s a PACKED day and you need a little bit of planing beforehand to see everything you want to. Here’s just a little bit of info about what you can expect:

✭ 22,000 dogs competing for the world-class title of Crufts Best In Show
✭ The Arena showcasing fantastic displays and competitions
✭ Good Citizen Dog Scheme training ring, the UK’s largest dog training programme
✭ Dog Activities Ring, where you can learn how to unleash your dog’s potential
✭ Over 400 trade stands with special show offers and exciting new products for you and your best friend!

Black & White Sunday: Pup Takeover

Myfie: Hey guys 😀 It’s Myfie here
Ellie: And Me!
Millie: And most impawtantly, me!… do you see what I did there?

Myfie: Yeah hilarious, but I am in charge today! My idea and I’m the boss. So there, shush! Where was I?
Ellie: You were trying to sound clever.
Millie: He IS clever, Ellie. The cleverest… I ❤ you, Myfie.
Ellie: *Yawn* Can you just get on with it if you’re gonna do this please?

Myfie: Yeah so… Hi! Mum hasn’t posted for a long time
Millie: And we were worried our fans missed us!
Myfie: Ahem… No, we missed YOU guys in blogville and we wondered what you were all up to? Mum is being reeaaallly lazy just lately, and sulking loads
Ellie: MYFIE!! That’s so mean, you can’t say that!
Myfie: Well that’s what it’s looked like to me!

Ellie: Mum has been poorly, and she’s worried she’s let everybody down and she’s been a bit sad recently.
Millie: Tell them how ace we are though. We’ve been looking after her and everything for ZERO PUBLICITY.
Ellie: That’s our job, Millie! Our job is to love, that’s all.
Myfie: So what about the work in the Shed!?
Ellie: That’s… we do that because it’s fun! And if mum sells loads of collars, she’ll buy us many Dentastix (other brands are available 😉 )
Millie: I need to speak to my agent!

Myfie: Right so anyway, since mum has been ‘poorly’ and what not, we thought we’d just take to our paws and do this thing ourselves. And to be perfectly honest, we’ll do a much better job. We know how this thing works by now!
Millie: You’re so right, I ❤ you, Myfie. You’re the only thing I love more than myself.

Millie: Here’s my selfie…
Myfie & Ellie: NOT YET!!!

millie blogger

Millie: Why not?? Too many words without a picture of me! mum wouldn’t do it like this!
Myfie: Well it should have been ME first, I’m the writer!!
Ellie: Don’t mean to sound like a know-it-all but you should have put it at the top. I thought you said this was easy and you could do better?
Myfie: Know-it-all!

Myfie: Here I am, some sort of annoying stain next to me though. :p

Myfie Ellie Bloggers

Ellie: HEY! I wasn’t ready.
Myfie: Hehehehe. Can we have a treat now? This is done, right?
Ellie: Who’s gonna do THAT? Mum doesn’t even know we are doing this!
Myfie: I didn’t think of that 😦 … what was the POINT!? I’m outta here!
Millie: At least people got to see my our pretty face faces!

Myfie: Come on! Let’s go make big eyes at mum so we get treats anyway!
Millie: You’re a genius, Myfie. I ❤ you!

*Myfie and Millie, gone like a herd of elephants*

Ellie: OI! WE AREN’T DONE!! What about the editing and the posting and stuff??

Myfie: *from afar* Pah ha! You snooze, you lose!! Make sure my name is BIG!!

Ellie: *grumble, grumble*

Black & White Sunday: #BFFSelfie

Would you just have a look at what the pups presented me with for today’s submissions…

This is why I don’t let them run their own accounts; they’d behave like teenage girls!… only thing missing here are ‘duck lips’.

#52SnapShotsofLife – Week One: New

We are a little late to the game, (still in time though. YAY!!) and are excited to take part in The Lazy Pit Bull’s ’52 Snapshots of life’ photo challenge. We will be posting both here and on Instagram if you would like to join us? Yaa!
Here is the list of themes for the year, which you can find on The Lazy Pit Bull’s website and Instagram feed:

52-Snapshots-of-Life-blog

The theme for this week is ‘NEW’.

second chance 1

This image was taken this week from a NEW rescue centre that is opening in our area. All of the pups there are rescued and brought over from a life of abuse and/or neglect in Romania. They are all looking for a brand NEW life, in a brand NEW forever home… and right now they even have a brand NEW temporary home, as the shelter has just relocated.

For me, I am looking forward to perhaps getting involved in a brand NEW challenge as I offer to volunteer in some way when they are up and running. So it’s likely you will hear a lot more about this wonderful NEW venture right here on the blog.

2014 in review

Oh lookie here!! Not a smidgen as impressive as some of the others we have seen, but we were grateful to find this hidden (by another 234, 556,325 emails) in our inbox! We have had such a great year blogging and you’ll know from previous posts that we really count 2014 as being our first year! We’ve made so many beautiful new friends and are grateful for each and every one of ya!! Here’s to more fun in 2015!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,500 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
