Crufts 2013 Best in Show Winner
Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Jilly
Top dog Jilly was Crufts 2013 Best in Show – and then her delighted owner revealed she had won her last show. Breeder Gavin Robertson said he had decided to retire the Basset Griffon Vendeen just months before Crufts.
“I just wanted her to enjoy the whole occasion. It’s her last show. I’d already decided months ago that I would retire her no matter what she got so it’s fantastic, you couldn’t ask for a script like that. What a way to stop.”
