Visitors to the Blue Cross pet charity’s stand (Hall 3 Stand 51) at Crufts this year will get a preview of two designer doggy dream homes designed by celebrities Anne Robinson and Russell Watson whose creations were realised by designers from Condy Lofthouse and Travis Alan Mills. Russell Watson said: “I have three dogs myself who are part of the family and bring so much joy to my life, so being asked to be a part of designing a kennel to help other dogs in need seemed an exciting project. It has been fun to help shape the design inspired by my life on the stage and it will hopefully be sold to help more pets in need.’ Anne Robinson said: “I thoroughly enjoyed being part of this exciting project and am thrilled with the end result. My dogs are typical of their breed and always like to run around and keep very busy, but even they could do with a time out session every now and then. These stunning dog homes are the perfect space for a bit of ‘me time’ for any four legged friend.” The preview of these two kennels at Crufts (March 8 – 11) is before over 60 bespoke kennels by other celebrities, architects, artists and designers are displayed from 19 March 2018 at St Pancras International and Stratford International train stations. The special kennels will be on display on the upper mezzanine of the station until 26 April 2018 when they will be auctioned off in aid of the Blue Cross pet charity. Pictured is the kennel designed by Travis Alan Mills and Russell Watson currently at St Pancras.
