Dogs in the Snow- Making the best of it.

I'm sure it hasn't escaped you that parts of the UK have been transformed into a winter wonderland in the past week, with blizzards, freezing conditions and train delays wreaking havoc for all us hard-working dog lovers. Now we may have more snow drifts than Snow Drops, but whilst we mourn the lack of spring, let's look at some pictures of dogs having a jolly good time in the snow. and why not eh?

All about Crufts!

As some of you may know, Crufts 2013 is now well under way in Birmingham. To celebrate this, we have compiled a list of the Best in Show Dogs for the past 4 years. 

2009 Winner- a very rare Welsh breed of Terrier. Sealyham Terrier
2010 Winner- the Hungarian Gundog, the Vizsla.
2011 Winner, and it is another Gundog, this time a Flat-Coated Retriever.
....and last year's winner the Lhasa Apso from the Utility Category.

We'll have to wait until the 10th to find out this year's Best in Breed!

Now, did you know that the Kennel Club also runs a fun competition for mongrels know affectionately as the Scruffts? Instead of the usual agility and breeding, Scruffts are based on good character, good health and good temperament. In the end, is that not what everyone looks for in their dog?

To make your pooch look more like a showstopper, why not browse through our dog grooming section.
Why not pamper your pet with our Massaging Mitt? Not only will your dog love how it feels, but it helps the coat look glossy and healthy too! for 8.99.

Or why not a veterinary-grade toothbrush to help maintain a healthy mouth?

That's all for now Scruffies,
Over and out!
