    Ok, I know some of you are probably bored of seeing these and hearing me harp on about it but i've not put any photos of the dogs on here for ages so thought i'd share our successful weekend at the same time.

    Last weekend we spent on Anglesey, the sole purpose being to compete in a 2 day rally competition there. I stayed in a lovely caravan on a small holding - my word, caravans have come along way since I last stopped in one 20 years ago! We were in a lovely location just a few minutes away from the Showground, 11 miles from the beautiful beach and dunes at Aberffraw, and half a mile away from Cefni reservoir, the dogs had a blast.

    Anyway, day 1 of the competition Jed and Flynn got their third Excellent qualifying score making them now both RL1Ex, Jessie was NQ'd. Pressure was on the next day to get her qualified and thankfully she got her second Excellent qualifier. Unfortunately, although the boys qualified on Sunday, they didnt obtain high enough marks for Ex so thank our lucky stars we got them the Saturday and Sunday was just their 'freebie'! All in all, a very successful weekend topped off by generally great weather and walks!

    Beautiful scenery, and that beach! sand, lovely!

    The dogs look fab as always and congrats on the wins.

    Seeing how lovely and fit Flynn looks makes me realise that Bo's a bit of a porker :oops:

    I dont think Flynn could be anything other than lean if I tried! Even trying to put half a kg on him is a mammoth task, as I keep being told by vets that he is too lean. Personally, thats the way I like him so I dont take much notice tbh. I am really anal about dogs weights so am constantly checking my lot.

    Anglesey is such a beautiful place but i've never been for a week, only ever long weekends.

    The expanse of dunes is pretty impressive too. According to Google Maps, Rhosneigr is 4 miles North of Aberffraw along the same coastline so you werent far away. I came across it by chance last year as I was just driving along and it didnt disappoint.

    You have a very good eye for a landscape photo. The framing of some of those is fantastic.

    Congratulations to you all and thanks for the stunning pics. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

    You didn't tell us how you got on with the wonderful Craig Ogilvie a few week-ends back though....LOL

    Oh yes! Well, it was worth it just to ogle him lol! I do often play in the same vigorous way with my dogs that he got us to do actually but I did learn that his more fluid tugging movement is much better for them. I dont usually sustain the play for as long as he wanted me to neither because I get too puffed out but his yelling at me to "keep moving Mum!" and "Come on Mum, move those feet!" left me little choice! He also gave me something to work on with regards to Flynn's frustration barking when he doesnt have the toy.
