Crufts Best In Show Winner Has A Poo During Lap Of Honour
A dog that won Best in Show at the Crufts World Dog Show has taken a poo during its victory lap.
Maisie the wire-haired dachshund and her owner Kim were enjoying their moment in the spotlight when unfortunately the canine had to do a number two.
They say when you have to go, you have to go.
Thankfully Maisie had already taken out one of the most coveted titles in the dog show industry.
The dachshund managed to beat the likes of Pixie the Kerry Blue Terrier, Frankie the Miniature Poodle, Pablo the Bishon Frise, Elsie the Irish Setter, Drago the Bull Mastiff, and Zokni, the Old English Sheepdog.
But if you thought that was most hilarious moment from Crufts 2020, then you clearly haven't seen what happened with Kratu.
Kratu has made several appearances at Crufts over the years and, if we're being honest, he's never been that fussed on nailing the agility course, so you won't be surprised to learn this year was no different.

The cute pooch took part in the non-competitive rescue dogs agility course, guided by his handler Tessa Eagle Swan at the Birmingham NEC show. Although he didn't exactly follow the course, he did look like he was having the time of his life.
The crowd couldn't help but crack up laughing as Kratu bounded out into the arena, mostly ignored the jumps, hid in a tunnel and then grabbed one of the poles from a jump and dragged it around with him, all while patient Tessa encouraged him try and complete the course.
I reckon he deserves a solid 10/10 for enthusiasm and cuteness.
Kratu, a Carpathian-Mioritic cross, was rescued from Romania where he had 'traumatic' start to life and was taken in by the Wood Green Animal Shelter.
Tessa says she began speaking to Kratu over WhatsApp before he had even made it into the UK. She explained: "We rescued Kratu when he was a few weeks old from a very dangerous situation. He went in to foster with my friend and I would talk to him using WhatsApp.
"I used to sing him songs and send him voice messages. When he arrived back with me in the UK he was familiar with my voice and we bonded instantly."
As you can probably see from the clip above, when it comes to training Kratu it hasn't been a walk in the park for Tessa, who says he is 'a big character who will try to do what he wants rather than what I am asking'.
After this performance Kratu has now retired from Crufts, but you can still keep up with his antics on his Twitter page here.
