So that’s Crufts for another year, must be time for a rest!
An event of this magnitude and importance can’t happen without a huge team effort, and I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to the fantastic group of people that make this possible. Firstly, to Kate, you are simply the best, and more than I had hoped for when I asked you to take on the role of Crufts Assistant Chief Obedience/Rally Steward. I have 100% confidence that you will be a perfect successor and graduate from Wee Chief to Big Chief with ease! Thank you so much. Next, to Michael for all that you do to assist, a willing and cheerful Apprentice Chief! I am sorry that talk of football is wasted on me.
Next thanks to Jane and Clare our commentators for doing a terrific job of keeping everyone informed. Clare, you did a great job in the main arena, coping with the last-minute changes without hesitation.
Finally, Rachel and Bev for co-ordinating the team events and providing the link between us and the teams.
To all of you I say – Thank you, I couldn’t do it without you, and I look forward to doing it all over again in 2024 .
