Another Crufts is over. It was a pleasure that Hounds and Terriers were exhibited on Thursday as the crowds were minimal. A friend attended on Saturday and she said it was a nightmare trying to move from on area to another. On the lighthearted side I understand there were no electric sockets
available during the show so someone sighted an exhibitor is the bath rooms using the sockets, there, to groom their dogs. Life with Salukis is so simple. Living with a smooth is even easier.
Judging us at Crufts was Mrs Denise Garratt. She seemed to be enjoying her day very much. She chose for her DCC, BOB Jeannette & Alan Glaister’s Ch Classicus Cassnder JW Sh CM with the RDCC to Fernlark By Design JW owned by Kevin & Michele Goulden. BCC for her second CC went to Diane Layton-Smith’s Velourias Viva Vivienne with the RBCC to Hilary Davies and Christine Harrison’s Charrioak Sheerzam JW. Best Puppy was Nicola Warner, Joanne Mahon and Felix Van Der Drift’s Canapus Requim (Imp NDL)
Best Veteran went to the Ham, Brockeman-Chato. Elliot-Ross partnership of Ch Baghdad Karim Sh CM. Well done all
The Salukis entered under a ATC number were a little down this year from last. This year the entry was 123 Salukis with 16 entered a ATC number making a rounded off percentage of 20.
