Jilly Top Dog at Crufts Show

By AFP News    March 11, 2013 at 05:33PM / (2) comments

LONDON - A Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen called Jilly on Sunday won the Best in Show award at Britain's Crufts festival, the world's largest annual dog show.

 

Jilly, from Oxfordshire, south England, was crowned champion ahead of more than 20,000 other dogs at the NEC arena in Birmingham, central England.

"She is just so busy, so naughty, she's such a character, a once in a lifetime dog," said owner Gavin Robertson.

Organizers The Kennel Club describes the breed as a "well balanced, short legged, rough coated, compact hound".

A Labrador Retriever named Romeo finished second.

The show celebrates its 122nd anniversary this year.

    "She is just so busy, so naughty, she's such a character, a once in a lifetime dog," So describes my boy Jaxson. Busy, busy, naughty, a very unique character of a dog, so sweet and lovebale, you just can't not love him, even with his flaws. We often say, "how can something so sweet and loveable be so naughty". He is my little lovebug.
