    Default In pictures: Crufts opens at NEC

    Thousands of dog lovers and their pets are attending Crufts, the biggest dog show in the world.

    The famous cartoon character Gromit helped launch Crufts 2008, which is taking place at the Birmingham NEC.

    A bulldog named Tommy Tucker is among about 23,000 dogs expected at the four-day event.

    Two bulldogs arrive for the show, which was founded by a 'dog cake' maker called Charles Cruft in 1891.

    Dogs have to fulfil qualification rules before they can appear at the show before the judges.

    Has anyone got a hairbrush? The Kennel Club's show is in its 18th year at Birmingham's NEC and this year will see 1,165 dogs from overseas.

    Dogs in the utility and toy groups will be shown at the first day of Crufts.

    Crufts has a wide range of judging categories, including obedience and heelwork to music.
