Crufts: Drinking game rules
The last one to shout “that’s pony” when a dog or its owner makes a mistake must drink two fingers of their beverage.
It’s funny because they’re not actually horses but dogs. Ha.
Every time a dog has a similar hair doo to someone in the room, everyone stare at that person.
That person must drink two fingers of their beverage if EVERYONE is looking at them.
They say dogs look like their owners, right?
Every time a dog looks like its owner, drink two fingers of your beverage.
Every time a dog decides to sniff another dog’s butt – you know, like they do – drink two fingers of your beverage.
The same applies for any time a dog decides to lay some turf while on camera.
Any time someone in the room accidentally groans out loud because a pup is overwhelmingly cute, they must take some sort of shot.
If any dog or contestant has your name, you must finish your drink instantly.
When a dog is either stroked or petted (usually on the doggy podium), you must guzzle your drink for the entire duration of the petting.
