Crufts

Clipping and bathing and brushing,

Labradors,Poodles and Chows.

Competitors furiously working,

To make sure that it’s their dog that wows.

Judges watch Dachunds and Boxers,

Strutting around the show ring.

Each walking with poise and precision.

Perfection means everything.

There are always winners and losers,

And some just don’t make the grade.

So no ‘Best in Show’ this time.

There were better dogs out on parade.
