Crufts aftereffects

I hear on the grapevine that the owner of that lovely bloodhound that made it to the final at Crufts, has been inundated with puppy sales enquiries from within a few hours of her group win. 

They are apparently  impulse buyers who have not even begun to think about the implications of owning a very large strong dog which drools mightily and tends to consider a new scent far more important and interesting than anything their owners have to say!

Luckily there are no puppies in the country at present.  I hope the interest dies down quickly before the puppy farmers can get involved.  Though sam tells me that some of them are asking 'oh, no blood hounds - do you do shar peis then?' 


I've always felt  that some people seem to buy dogs with all the deliberation they put into choosing a new doormat.   But a bloodhound!  Good grief!
