Oh yes it is that time of year
Crufts dog show is almost here
So many dogs for all to see
Some are huge and others wee.
Fluffy Poms, huge DDB’s
Poodles, Pointers and BSD’s
Some have long coats and others short
Some have medium, other nought
Some are black and some are blues
So many colours, all different hue’s
All are bathed and brushed and combed
Claws are trimmed and muscles toned
Combs and brushes and the rake
Don’t forget the liver cake!
Show bags packed with grooming kit
Far too much, will it fit?
Packed the car, all set to go
Not long now until the show.
Arrive safely and found the ring
Now what did you forget too bring?
Show the dog and win a 3rd
Stupid judge –that is absurd!
But win or lose – the dog look great
It doesn’t matter, it’s your best mate.
Now the time to explore the show
So much to see, so where to go?
Trade stands galore - all want your cash
Some goods cheap and others flash.
Obedience, Flyball, Agility
Discover Dogs, too much to see
The youngsters show to find Best Junior
Give them support as they’re the future.
Group time now, the dogs look stunning
In posing stance and then when running.
Shows ending now, it’s time for BIS
To win this crown is utter bliss!
Time to go, you’re getting tired
But this events left you inspired
One thing certain that is clear
You will return for Crufts next year.
