Proud dog owner from Lutterworth celebrates Crufts win

Rugby Editorial 13th Mar, 2024   0

A PROUD dog owner from Lutterworth has celebrated back-to-back wins on the final day of Crufts.

Kirsty Ryan, 36, was in awe of her Skye Terrier Fergil, who wowed the judges at the NEC in Birmingham to hold off stiff competition and qualify for the Best in Group showpiece on the famous green carpet.

The pair savoured another successful trip out to the prestigious dog show after emerging with a prized winning rosette.

She said: “I’m so proud of him, he’s done so well.

“He’s a fabulous dog, he’s very well made and a beautiful example of his breed.

“We got Fergil around five-and-a-half years ago and he’s great to have around the house, it’s been a brilliant day.”

They were unable to go all the way and book their place in Sunday night’s Best in Show finale – but still enjoyed a day to remember at the world’s biggest dog show.

Crufts, run by The Kennel Club, is a celebration of happy, healthy dogs and of their relationships with their owners.

The show was held from March 7-10 at the NEC Birmingham. Highlights are available on Channel 4. Visit for more information.
