Just wanted to remark that it is so nice to watch free streaming video of the group judging, as well as the agility, heel to music,etc . I love the fact that cropping of tails has joined cropping of ears as illegal in the UK. Some breeds I have never seen with a full tail--and they look so much better to me.

I just upgraded from dial-up to DSL so I didn't even know they had such things as streaming video of dog shows! :eek: Do they do it live or is it a taped video that you can view anytime? :o (Sorry for the stupid questions. :o My horizons are being stretched lately.... :laughing:)

It looks like, if I'm reading this correctly... that when there are shows on, the streaming is live but you can also watch replays from their video bank.

Awwww...I just saw a 15 yr old Finnish Spitz competitor.

Aw, bummer. :frustrated: Looks like to see the old video, you have to 'buy a ticket'... :shrug:

I'll have to remember to check it out next year when they're streaming it live, though! :thumbs up

You can still get a lot of it in the morning likely. You have to register with them but then you get the streaming video free. And all vids of previous years are free too.

Did you register, LP? I could only play the one about the retiring spitz, but the others I tried said I needed to purchase some sort of ticket? :confused: Or did I just choose the wrong videos? :shrug:

Oh, I just found a few more to watch. :o

This video stuff still mystifies me. :laughing:

Okay, so am I getting this right now? The show is going on over the next few days. While it's being held they'll be streaming live video of the action? :o

Modern technology! Who knew? :shrug: :D

You just chose the wrong videos--they won't show videos from this year--without a ticket. Older stuff is free--just search around.

I found a few more to watch, though :thumbs up If you find an English setter, let me know? :D

I am so impressed with Crufts. I've never been a dog show fan (fancy doggies just prancing around the ring looking pretty just wasn't my thing :shrug:) but this dog show brings out all the best of doggies! I like the idea that looks aren't everything at this show :thumbs up

Sigh, Nolie is gonna be pissed off at me... warm springy kinda day out and i'm gonna sit here and watch OTHER doggies all day :laughing: (no, don't worry, Nolie will get her time with me too)

Rats! I just got back and missed today's activities. And tomorrow the in-laws are coming for dinner, so I'll likely miss a lot tomorrow, too :frustrated:

Who woulda thunk you could get good stuff like this on the computer? :eek: :o

I wonder when the 2010 vids become free?!

In-laws? You have in-laws? I didn't think you and DSL were married yet! :D

Oh, ya! :p

Actually, the in-laws have the place next door. Next nearest neighbors beyond them are a quarter mile down the road. :o So they're all I have :eek: :o :D Well, all I had. Now I can spend my time talking to videos on the computer. :o :laughing:

That's errrr.... cozy. As long as they're in-laws and not monster-in-laws!

Do they share your obsession... errr... love of dogs?:D

And can't you complain to them to keep THEIR deer away from your fences? :laughing:

:sorry::offtopic:

They like dog shows, too! (See? Back on topic! :laughing:)
