    If anyone is interested I know there is a dog show going on in Gnoll Park, Neath on 26th September.

    I don't know all the details, I noticed a leaflet earlier and thought of you all :)

    I was going to pop along with one of my boys but there's a pretty good chance I'll be babysitting a new litter ;)

    hmmm, you may have stiff competition in the puppy class, I might not be going but my other half is set on taking the pyr ;) he's a handsome chap too... the dog that is lol:smilewinkgrin:

    I would have liked to try one of the obedience classes, my baby can do the stuff on the first one, he used to 'fetch' too but hasn't done that since he was about 2 years old lol... never mind, he'll be strutting his stuff at the Lido at the end of Aug in the open show there :)

    Well seeing as you live behind it, you won't have far to go for the open show :D my class is first thing and not sure I'll stay in there to watch the classes after but I'm hoping that I've got to go back ;)

    As long as you keep your girl nice and clean you could be in with a chance, they seem to like the bigger babies ;) We took ours to the one in margam park last summer (piddling down rain and the place was like a swamp) not knowing anything about the so called fun shows we let ours enjoy themselves, they were upto their armpits in mud lol... needless to say they didn't get a place... judge didn't even want to touch them lol

    This is our big baby :D

    Lol!!

    I won't be taking her to the one in the lido. She'll have just finished her season and by my calculations she'll be fine to go to the Gnoll in September :yesnod:

    Aw he's gorgeous!!

    I have to miss out on it this year :( My sister's birthday is on Monday but she's having a family meal Sunday (she's agoraphobic so this took her ages to plan) :cursing:

    It's the 6th xx

    I've found out the meal is at 12pm so it would be finished by 2 at the latest. Do you think I could still make it up and enter or would it be too late? :(

    Hi Sequeena,
    You could phone the organisers I am sure that they would let you enter by phone if you explain. its a fun show and all for charity so I dont see a problem.
    I have entered open shows late in the past. Are you going to next sundays bridgend show?

    I entered that late too.

    hugs

    Rachel

    Thanks! I will phone them, I do hope I can join in. If not I'll bring the dogs up anyway just to have fun :D
    I didn't realise there was one in Bridgend! Whereabouts is it?
