Crufts (1) Dogs

Back in March Sue and her Sister and Husband and I 'did our' annual trip to Crufts. This year we went on the final day. I was a bit apprehensive out the crowds a final day might attract. As it turned out it was no busier than our visits on previous years. This is the first of three blogs. This one shows some beautiful dogs. Number two will be about people and number three will be some monochrome pictures. Crufts is an amazing Dog Show and well worth a visit.
