    What along day we had today, we didn't get in the ring until 4pm but it was worth it in the end.
    My little Tpoot Sweet was 2nd in AVNSC toy Junior out of a big class of mainly poms' there was 6 pom's 2 Jap chin's and a King charles cavalier, she was beaten by Harry's litter sister Jelly Belly who went on to win BP AVNSC and also puppy group 2 so I was very pleased with her win. I also took Wikit my black boy, who hasn't been out to a show for a good few months or so and was a little scatty to say the least LOL and was 3rd out of another big class of about 6+ dogs.

    Sorry to Laura for not getting down to see you, but we were right at the far end of the dog show area, and I had my kids with me too and they were being little wotsit's. so as soon as I had fifnished in the ring I went home, I was supposed ot watch my friends in the pony driving class to but never got chance.
    Hope to see you at another show soon.

    take care
    Sarah

    Hi Sarah
    Sorry to have missed you too, I did walk up the other of the show to have a look at the dog show, but early on before we really got busy, luckily the weather held off during the show, we had a right time of it putting the stand up on friday in torrential rain, also threatened to rain when we were taking it down but it held off, we did however dismantle and pack away in a record hour and a half:D normally takes at least an hour longer than that. We've just finished a run of 3 shows back to back so I'm quite glad that I haven't got to dash off anywhere to put a tent up today and can catch up on some cricket!
    Well done to your winners and places, fabulous, which show for you next?
    Will you be going to Shropshire Game Fair at the end of August?

    I didn't get tot he show until 11.30am as we weren't in until the afternoon, although we could have left it even later as we didn't get in the ring until turned 3pm it took forever. I had a nightmare morning befor we got there with my kids and then when we did get there they parked us in some woodland area on a steep slope, I put my dogs crate ont he trooley strapped it all own and began to set off up the slope to get to flatter ground, but the trolley didn't appreciate the slope and toppled over thankfully there was enough people around to help me pick eveything up, whilst I checked onmy dogs, who were very nonplused about the whole thing which I found suprising tbh bt it never bothered them and they were both sort of well behaved in the ring lol.
    Sorry to hear you had bad weather putting the stand up, it was horrible on friday, I had said to my friend that if the weather kept up on Fridya noght saturday morning that I wouldn't have gone. We all wore boots and big coats just in case.

    My next show is Paignton ch show in August and then no more shows until bank hloiday monday at the end of August.
    No I'm not doing the game fair this year we did it last year and it was to expensive.

    take care
    Sarah
