Not all of our furry friends are fortunate enough to be a true pedigree, or best in show. But dogs everywhere rejoice because the alternative Crufts are here.
The world’s biggest dog show returns on 7th March, and is estimated that more than 25,000 dogs will be making their way to the NEC in Birmingham for the annual dogfest. As a celebration of dogs, Crufts is pretty unique. Since 1886 the show has brought together the crème de la crème of our four legged friends to showcase everything from agility, obedience, cuteness and more bizarrely, doggy dancing.
But what about all the canines that don’t meet the Crufts grade, the mongrels that delight and enhance our lives every day, don’t they deserve a prize? There are some very strange dogs out there (with even stranger owners) that fame has cruelly decided to overlook. The may not be pampered pooches, but every dog deserves their day.
So here it is, the awards every dog lover has been waiting for; the alternative Crufts. Plus get 5% off at Zooplus.
