Don't judge me! Dog halts in middle of Crufts agility course... for a bathroom break

By Daily Mail Reporter

I can't take you anywhere! Libby's owner holds her head in her hands as the dog took a bathroom break in the middle of competing at Crufts dog show in Birmingham, England

There were possibly better moments that this pooch could have picked - and places a little more private.

Libby, a five-year-old cross-breed, was taking part in the agility course at Crufts dog show this weekend. Her performance was going well - as she raced along beside her owner, running through tunnels and jumping over fences.

However after around a minute on the course, the dog stopped just in front of some posts - for a bathroom break.

The commentators saw the funny side and quipped: 'A dog's got to do what a dog's got to do. What a shame. Disqualified - and it was a good run too.'

The dog's female owner was left looking a little red-faced as she scooped up the mess after an attendant handed her a plastic bag.

The pair then left the arena after being disqualified from the competition.

The Crufts dog show ran from March 8 until today at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham in the English Midlands.

The agility course is open to large, medium and small dogs as well as teams and pairs. The finals take place across all four days of Crufts and are attended by audiences of up to 6,000 canine enthusiasts.

Crufts was started in 1891 by an English entrepreneur Charles Cruft and is described as a 'celebration of all dogs'.
