Gundog day at Crufts

It was Gundog day at Crufts today, we met up with a party of friends from the Sporting Irish Water Spaniel Club (spookily we all ended up parking next to each other although we came from all points of the compass).

A great day, Sue and Judith Hempstead from the Sporting Irish Water Spaniel Club had great success with their working dogs picking up a 1st and 3rd in the Gamekeepers Class.

And to top it all an Irish Water Spaniel won the Gundog Group final.

All around the National Exhibition Centre there are hundreds of dogs in little stalls (usually sleeping) awaiting their time in the show rings, occasionally the owner is a little more tired than their dog.......
