Elizabeth the Lhasa Apso!
Crufts is the UK equivalent of the Westminster Dog Show and it's the largest in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
The 7-year-old doggy is owned by the proud Margaret Anderson.
Funny fact about the Lhasa Apso: they were bred in Tibet as guard dogs for Buddhist monasteries and Tibetan nobility.
Not sure how effective of a guard they'd be with that long hair running down their faces but maybe they used to rock ponytails.
Congrats to Elizabeth the dog and Margaret Anderson!

It's always so cool to watch dogs run an agility obstacle course.
Well this dog was running the course at Crufts this year which is the world's largest dog show.

Check out the above video to see one dog decide he'd rather relieve himself than go for the gold.

It's amazing that we'd never heard of this before but it's such a huge event for so many people.
Check out the above video to hear who won and see the contestants in action!
