Crufts, the "world's largest dog show" begins today in Birmingham, England, and despite the troubling press the organization has received, the show will go on, with nearly 28,000 dogs competing over the next several days. Above, 12-year-old Elliot Haywood, who hails from Devizes, will be one of the youngest handlers competing at this year's event; he will be handling his grandmother's Dachshunds seen here, 'Cleo,' and 'Razzy.' We're rootin' for ya! His grandmother said: “Elliot is not in the least nervous about competing against adults. In fact, I think he prefers that to being in competition with people his own age.” Source.
Keep up with Crufts at the official site. Hounds are being judged on Friday. We'll do our best to provide highlights.
