Benson dog scoops top Crufts prize
Published 10/03/13



A dog loving couple are tonight celebrating being awarded the top award at Crufts for the second time in three years.

Jilly, a four-year-old Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, won best in show out of more than 21,000 dogs.

She was crowned by The Kennel Club at Birmingham’s NEC today (Sunday).

Jilly was accompanied by her owner Gavin Robertson, her handler, and his wife Sara Robertson, who run Avalon kennels and cattery in Old Icknield Way, near Benson.

The dog previously picked up reserve best in show in the 2011 competition.
