Hello all, and happy weekend,
I'm so excited as we're off to Crufts tomorrow! I've never attended before, and it's always been something I've wanted to do. I watched coverage of the show religiously as a child, and I can't believe that all these years later, I'll be there with my own dog. Poppy's Picnic have invited Winnie and I along, and I'm super excited to share the day with you on the blog and our instagram stories. As he's a little nervous, Archie will be spending the day at my parents' house. He's a sensitive chap and big, indoor events with lots of dogs are too much for him. I'll be buying him lots of presents to make up for it!
I thought you might like to see what we're taking with us, and what I'm planning to buy!
I always have some essential items that come with me to every event. These are treats, poo bags, a portable bowl and a bottle of water. Of course I take my camera too! Everything else gets changed out depending on the season and weather. Tomorrow we'll be leaving super early (and we're forecast cold temps and rain!) so I'm taking Winnie's beautiful Dachshund Couture coat and her hand-knitted snood from Harry Dachshund Crafts. Inside the show, where it will be warm I imagine, she'll wear her pink shetland wool harness from Teddy Maximus, her Devil Dood Designs lead, and Leather Shed UK collar. Who knew that a trio of items, all from different brands, could be such a perfect match?! It's my favourite combination for her at the moment. I may pop one of our bandanas in my bag too, but I'm not sure.
Now, onto our Crufts wishlist!
My two really have everything they need, but I definitely want to get a Pet Teezer, which is a tangle teezer brush for pets! I think it'll be perfect for Archie, and my bunnies as well. I believe these are being sold on the Battersea stand. I'm hoping to stock up on Lily's Kitchen travel snack bars, some Chuckit! balls for Archie, and my Mum has asked me to buy Dogrobes drying coats for her dogs as well. I'm sure I'll come home with lots more than this (I have no self-control!) but that's all that's on my list.
Are you at Crufts tomorrow? Please say hi if you see us!
