"The bitch is trying to be undercover at Crufts again..."
Intelligent barracking is always welcome here. But I do get one or two nasty comments sent to me - always from some anonymous illiterate - and I don't publish them, figuring they're between me and my e-stalkers.
But this one this afternoon made me laugh:
"I hear the bitch is tryingto be under cover at Crufts again with photographer in toe" [sic]
Well no. The bitch is going fully cognito (as I have done for the past four years). And no toe-cam, I promise! So if someone in a wig and a raincoat sidles up to you with what appears to be a long lens sticking out of their mac.. Don't panic! It's just a pervert.
I'm particularly looking forward to seeing Mate Select - the KC's new initiative aimed at tackling genetic diversity. Mate Select launches next week at Crufts (although won't go live online for a while). It sounds good, it really does - allowing anyone to access the co-efficient of inbreeding (COI) of an individual dog or the progeny of a virtual mating. Also available will be the mean COIs of the breed. More next week when I've seen it.
