Maisie and I had a fantastic time at Crufts 2016, and bought home lots of goodies. We were given a press pass and a special dog plaza pass so we were able to go into the press office and take a photo in front of the Crufts background! As you can see, Maisie thought it was great!
|Maisie extremely happy to be at Crufts!|
We arrived at almost 12.30pm after a 4 hour train journey. It was exhausting just getting there but Maisie loved meeting all the new people on her journey. She made friends with several people at every stop along the way, and slept in between curled up on my lap. Thankfully there was a tea trolley on the train so I was able to get a cup of tea on the way!

Just outside we spotted this banner and a lovely lady offered to take a photo of us (Thank you!). Sadly a teenage boy decided to try and throw himself through the banner from the back as Maisie was sitting by it and scared her. Its a pity someone would try and destroy someone elses property and scare a small dog just because they can. Thankfully, Maisie was ok after a couple of minutes and the teenager embaressed himself in front of his friends. Thats what you get for trying to show off!

We went on Toy and Utility day so there were a lot of small dogs around. Some of our favourites were the sweet little Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and the Chinese Cresteds. Both breeds are so different but both are such lovely breeds. It was great seeing the difference between the hairless and powderpuff cresties while being shown in the same class.

|Maisie wasnt too happy that I wouldnt let her go in the ring too. She loves showing!|
|Some Chinese Cresteds in their matching onesies. Arent they adorable!|
|Maisie made a new friend. She had to have a cuddle with her.|
|A stunning Boston Terrier. This dog was being shown from overseas. People travel from all over the world to show at Crufts, and this little pup really had the wow factor for me.|

Hopefully we will be invited back this coming year. Maisie wants to say a big thank you to all of her fans, friends, and everyone who gave her so much attention throughout the day. She also wants me to book her a hotel so she can go on more than one day next year, but we will have to see if I can make that wish come true. But even if not, she knows she will be spoilt rotten.
