    I would like to go and was thinking about carrying Otto as he can't be on the ground until Aug 14th but I decided it wasn't worth the stress and damage to my back!
    I'll be going to the Chatsworth one though.

    I'm at Paignton tomorrow so wont be going to Bakewell, th elast time I did Bakewell Arwin was only a pup and it was roasting hot with no were to get out of the heat, Arwin won BPIB and BOB that year and by the time the group was done she was really struggling with the heat and ended up going in the ring with a damp coat were we had sparayed her down with water to cool her off otherwise she would have ended up in the vets with heatstroke, not done the show since. Lets hope the rain stops for tomorrows shows.

    take care and good luck to those going to either of the two shows.

    Sarah

    Good Luck at Paignton tomorrow Sarah, it's a bit boggy at Bakewell we've just finished setting up, a few stands have had to be moved because of mud, but on the whole it's not bad, all the dog stands are down by the dog show, we're right next to One Stop Dog Shop, and Woofs World is just across from us. Phew, taking the wellies off now and keeping all fingers and toes crossed for good weather for the next couple of days!

    Hi Laura,

    we were glad of the welly's, can't really leave home with out them these days, the fishing umbrella came in useful as well. Poppy enjoyed her treats, persuaded her to share them with Meg and Pip. Thank You:)


    Had a lovely drive home, the sun was shinning lovely and the scenery is very lovely around there.

    Hope that the car park hold's up for tomorrow we did a bit spinning getting off, but managed ok.

    See you soon

    Anne x

    Hi Anne

    Well done with Poppy and your very welcome to the treats and glad she decided to share!

    We're setting off again in a minute and hopefully the sun will be kind to us today, Bakewell is such a beautiful setting but I haven't managed to get off to get a tart!

    Here's to another good day at the show.

    I'm glad to hear the show's going well so far, if a bit boggy! I'm there once a month for the farmer's market (mmmmm.....sausages!) so I saw it all being set up last week. It's such a shame Otto isn't old enough to walk but is too heavy to carry, but I'm sure we'll be there next year.

    Laura, don't get caught calling them tarts in Bakewell, they're called puddings round there and the locals can be quite protective! :wink5:

    hi yes we went, showing our border terriers, Poppy had a reserve in Post graduate and a 2nd in AV Terrier, so was pleased. Meg had to stay at home as she had come in season, typical :)

    we had a lovely day, and talked to lots of people both from the dog show section and people who had a great love of dogs in general or wanted to know more about the breed.

    hope the car park held up it was pretty wet and soggy yesterday when we left.

    there is another bakewell show thread started on here, perhaps one of the mods can merge them up:)

    Aww, lovely:) I think it was a great show, loved it. (not just for dogs, but as a whole).

    Omg, we has help up for a good 40 mins in the car park. But we was right at the back car park, and there was no marshaling the cars out. Insted it was like a royal rumbel of cars, all trying to nudge there way out :p

    I also was asking people about dog breeds, and found it helpful doing my research. I really like Akita, i just dont know wether they are a bit to big for me or not :S

    and theres another thread ? oh really, sorry i will look for it :)
