Reading critiques is one of my favourite past times, because it's so educational. I've learned so much from reading judges' critiques of dogs (especially famous ones, simply because there are a zillion pictures and videos of them, so you can go look at the pics/videos and scrutinize the dog to see what the judge meant).
Anyway, hoping that the other judges will like Lyra, too. Oh, and also.. she will finally be old enough to be awarded CACIBs!! I don't think she will be getting any, since I have a feeling that the judging will be extra stringent since it'll be a Crufts qualification show, but that's okay.
I MIGHT also be handling another dog, but that's still up in the air, so when it's confirmed, I'll let you guys know!
