Face-planting Jack Russell wins hearts with adorably bad dog show run

A Jack Russell left commentates in stitches after her went "totally crazy" during the agility round at Crufts.

At Crufts in Birmingham, a hugely enthusiastic Jack Russell named Olly completed the agility course - but his run was marred with myriad hilarious bails, mistimed jumps and pure confusion about what direction to travel in.

Olly, who was rehomed by animal charity Blue Cross, amused onlookers during an adorably shambolic attempt at the competitive course. "He's going the wrong way, but it doesn't really matter, does it?", the announcer says.

The viral popularity of Olly is on par with that of the children who interrupted their father's BBC interview last Friday.

Olly might not have scored well at the show, but his antics have made him one of the top trending videos on YouTube.

But this year's victor of Best in Show, a two-year-old American Cocker Spaniel named "Afterglow Miami Ink", was not without controversy. We can't just leave it there: Here's a close-up of the indomitable pup's fateful tumble.

The Crufts dog show is one of the most prestigious events in the British calendar, with contestants from around the world lining up to show off their prized pooches.

"'He is an absolute handful", the commentator said in the video. Many screw-ups later, Olly still was having a ball, enjoying a chance to stretch the legs out. Loves life and exercise.
