"That’s definitely against the rules," one announcer said.
"That has to be a few faults ..." the other chimed in.
This is the third straight year that Kratu has won over the crowd by following his own path. And unfortunately, it will be the last.The pup's owner, Tessa Eagle Swan, announced on Feb. 28 that he was "retiring from agility."

Swan rescued Kratu from a dangerous situation in Romania when he was just a few weeks old. She was just as amused by his goofy personality as everyone else."As a teenager he was incredibly hard to train!'' Swan told Crufts in an interview last year. "He was so stubborn and determined to do what he wanted. He makes me laugh with his antics. He loves to perform tricks and does them all the time.

"He is a natural clown which makes it interesting and fun," she added. "If he doesn’t like something he won’t do it. He really loves to please me but mostly himself! He is such a big character who will try to do what he wants rather than what I am asking. He is challenging and quite determined."

At least Kratu didn't leave any unwanted souvenirs behind at the competition.A dachshund named Maisie that won best in show was so excited that she just couldn't hide it. She took a celebratory poop right on the course after being named the winner. Thankfully, owner Kim McCalmont came prepared with a bag to scoop it right up.
