Well, the Crufts website blog hasn’t been updated with today’s results yet, so I’ll be a little less specific than yesterday. However, I can tell you the following results, which were broadcast on YouTube.
The winner of the Hound Group was a Borzoi named Rothesby Sholwood Snow Hawk.
The winner of the Terrier Group was a Norwich named Ragus Merry Gentleman.
And the all-important Best in Show winner was…(drum roll please)…the Lhasa Apso! Reserve was taken by the Newfie.
Congratulations to all!
My only editorial comment: I was really surprised to see the female handlers in pants and the men in regular suits and ties. The British are usually so over-the-top formal – I mean, they wear hats to horse events! As you know, at Westminster, the ladies are usually in (at least) skirt suits, and the judges wear tuxes & evening gowns.
I’ll post links later to all of the Best in Group judging & interviews, as well as the Best in Show judging and interview.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
