Just five weeks to Crufts, can you believe that it has crept up on us so quickly? For your puppies I guess it will be a few more practices at the shows coming up for them to be prepared for that larger ring and for many I suspect, like us it will be a chill down period with some fun and frolic times in store. Whatever you are doing, have a great time.
