    Congratulations! I'd say 'see you there' but we'll be on different days!

    Is it the first time you've qualified? It feels great doesn't it! I qualified Mabel at her first ever show, I was nearly crying I was so happy - it's been a dream of mine for many many years to qualify a dog for Crufts, then we went and took 2nd in our class once we were at Crufts... then I really DID cry :eek:

    Mabel is also qualified for next year, I can't wait! I am not handling her next year though, which I am secretly quite glad about as it just meant hanging around the benches all day waiting, I barely got any shopping done this year :laugh: and our judging wasn't until after 4pm, everyone else was making their way home and we were STILL being judged, it was pretty annoying tbh! Then when we'd finished our judging, I went to grab some bits and half of the stalls were shut :mad: so I am looking forward to a day of SHOPPING in 2014 :D which considering I will probably have 2 dogs by then, it's gonna be an expensive day :rolleyes:

    Thank you everyone :D

    I have qualified twice previously but in breed showing :) Since starting agility, I have always wanted to to agility at Crufts :D the atmosphere is so amazing :D Plus, it's a great excuse to do some shopping ;) :eek:

    ahh that's amazing! So, what day will you be there? Do you know yet? I thought you'd qualified for the gamekeeping so assumed you'd be on Gundog day! I take it you've qualified with one of your Flatties? We'll be there on Terrier & Hound day, can't remember which day that is though lol

    ETA - we'll be on Friday next year :) although i'd like to see the W&P breeds also but I have no way of getting there on the Thursday, and nowhere to stay, so it'll probably just be Friday lol

    Not sure what day yet :eek: - will have to find out!! :) It could be on any of the days - I can't find any schedules or anything for 2014 - maybe I am just being stupid :eek:

    ETA - Yeah...qualified with one of them :)

    I don't know when the schedules come out, I know for the breed showing it's usually after the entries have closed in January but i'm not sure if it's different for agility :) i'd love to do agility there also one day! I've got zero sense of direction though and i'd most probably do it wrong :eek:

    It'll be cool to see a Flatcoat competing, I don't think i've ever seen one do agility at Crufts before! A refreshing change to the usual Border Collie overload!

    Yeah - Most people think we few who do agility with flatties are mad :lol:

    Thankfully we shan't be in the main arena -- I think the main arena would freak Inca out a bit :eek:

    Congratulations, that's so fabulous! We qualified Henry at Bath, so if you're scheduled on Gundog day we'll see you there!!

    ahh that's not so bad then! The thought of that main arena fills me with fear! The small green carpet nearly caused me a coronary last year, never mind the big one!! I would LOVE to be in there one day though, but of course in breed showing that means you've done VERY well :p

    Thanks!

    I've been watching the past couple of years in the main arena and it makes me nearly pee my pants! Been going to Crufts the past couple of years to watch rest of my club and to shop but this will be my first time ever with my own :)
