CRUFTS viewers were in hysterics last night as an adorable dog called Waffle did a wee on the carpet during Best In Show.
The cuddly toy poodle was named the champion of the Utility category at the prestigious show in Birmingham.

But as cameras zoomed in on as he took to the green parade area, he stopped to cock his leg and did a wee.
The dog was shown bounding onto the stage with owner Tom Isherwood as the announcer boomed: “The winner of the utility group the toy poodle.”
Best In Show is when the Crufts judges examine all the winners of that year’s categories to choose an overall champion.
A Channel 4 commentator was heard saying: “Here’s glamour and style in our little toy poodle.”
But as Waffle stopped to take a leak, he paused, then added: “Ah. Oh dear. No standing on ceremony here so here we are, striding out.”
His co-commentator added: “It’s a number one. Making his mark on the way in.”
One viewer tweeted: “If you need to go, you need to go !!” while others insisted he was “marking his territory”.
Crufts’ Best In Show winner – the most prestigious award that a dog can earn – was last night named as Baxer.
Under the rules of the historic competition, the flat coated retriever had to first win against other dogs of the same breed and age and then take the best-standing title too.
Waffle, whose official name is Afterglow Agent Orange, beat a Chow Chow called Elvis The Amazing Boy del Tassino to win the Utility category.
And – proving that weeing on the floor doesn’t actually harm your chances – he was also named as the reserve winner of Best In Show.
Other finalists included a Siberian Husky called Akela, a Border Collie known as Lenor, Conan the Yorkshire Terrier, a Greyhound named Aya and an Irish Terrier called Donnie.
