The organisers of the annual 'Our Dogs' competition have announced that it would not be appropriate to award Top Breeder, Top Dog, Top Puppy, Top Stud Dog or Top Brood Bitch for 2020 when so few of the scheduled events had taken place. However, they have published the league tables and, for info, we've listed the leaders up to the point where showing stopped. Pictured is young Mac. The tables can be found on the 'Our Dogs' web site: https://www.ourdogs.co.uk/subindex/home.php

Crufts have announced that the 2021 show will - pandemic permitting - still go ahead but has been moved out to the 15th - 18th July. There will be changes to the qualification rules though: there won't be any puppy classes and whilst dogs who qualified for the 2020 show will mostly be eligible for 2021, dogs that qualified by dint of a 3rd place won't be eligible. Additionally, numbers will be capped for the more popular breeds and classes.
We're waiting for full details but while this certainly won't feel like the usual Crufts, it is at least a step back to normality. You can find more information on the Crufts web site: https://www.crufts.org.uk
