Heaven help the American Cocker!  Winning Crufts frequently spells disaster for a breed as everyone thinks Oh I want one of those! without bothering to investigate whether it is the right dog for them.  Bizarrely this over shamppoed, over conditioned, over combed dog is actually a member of the gun dog group!  Sadly these dogs are rarely used now for their original purpose of a day in the field; they have too much coat for practical use.  Looking at all the gun dogs we couldn't help wonderring how many of them have any hunting instincts left.  How much better it would be if they were tested on the skills for which they were bred - setters setting, retrievers retrieving, pointers pointing etc - before they disappear for ever.  In our opinion, the best parts of Crufts were the flyball and agility competitions.  Here were dogs having a terrific time being dogs and nobody cared less what they looked like!
