"I was very nervous beforehand, but I felt she went very well".

"It's a beauty pageant and I think we can pretty much understand that that's wrong".

And Yvette and Tease, who attend Midlothian Dog Training Club, held their nerve to pip their fellow finalists to the famed silver cup.

On Monday, Mrs Short said: "That spoilt it, they scared my dog".

Two intruders, said by Crufts to be part of animal rights group Peta, ran into the show arena at Birmingham's NEC as the victor claimed her prize.

A few days ago Trump signed a decree imposing a 25% duty on steel and 10% on aluminum, which should take effect within two weeks. Trump's chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn , is resigning, reportedly because of his oppositions to the tariffs.

As the man ran towards Ms Short she grimaced, picking up the dog and holding the dog close to her.

The demonstration - organised by PETA - came as pet owner Yvette Short stepped up to the podium with her Best in Show victor.

The crowd booed before breaking into applause as he was taken away.

Crufts and the NEC said security would be reviewed as "a matter of urgency".

"Our main priority at the moment is the wellbeing of the dogs that were in the ring, who are being looked after by their owners and show officials".

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) later tweeted the footage, describing what's going on at the show as "canine eugenics" and saying the activists were protesting against "extreme breeding".

According to reports, the activists were from Vegan Strike Group - which campaigns against animal abuse - working with animal rights charity PETA.
