Dogs keep covered up in wellies and coats as they head into Crufts


We all know the feeling. It's Friday night, you've blow dried your hair, perfected your beauty look and are heading out the door when you realise, shock horror, it's bucketing down outside.

You'll be damned if you'll let the weather ruin your perfect pre-party grooming so on goes the jacket, up goes the brolly and those high heels get switched out for a waterproof shoe (to be popped in your handbag later!)

So we can imagine the owners of these gorgeous pups felt much the same way as they headed out the door to present their precious pets at this year's show to be met with a barage of rain and puddles.

But, not to be beaten by the British weather, these ingenious owners made sure to keep their prized pups covered up so there wasn't a stray hair, soggy tail or sodden paw in the house.

The dogs donned jumpsuits, jackets and even little booties to keep those glossy coats in place and to be on their best form for the Crufts judges.

We say scrap the rules and give them all best in show pronto...
