Well Saturday 8th March arrived and saw me up at 4:45 and ready to make my way to Crufts Dog show at Birmingham's NEC arena with my little Japanese Chin boy Kaito. I was just so nervous as it was the first time for me as an exhibitor. I have always attended Crufts as a spectator and to do lots of shopping for my dogs!
I entered the ring with my tummy doing somersaults! Kaito however took it all in his stride and strutted his stuff walking round in front of the judge. Much to my total amazement we won our class beating some very experienced dogs and handlers.
This win meant we went forward to compete for the best dog in breed ! I was totally speechless when we came runner up going reserve best dog in breed at the worlds most prestigious dog show. It is a dream come true and a day I will never ever forget. - Written by CAREGiver Julie. G
