Crufts 2013

Last Saturday Isla and I travelled to Crufts with Pearl and Nettie.  I was really pleased with how the girls coped with it.  I don't think it is a dog friendly show, particularly since they had to negotiate through the crowded halls in order for me to show them at either end of the venue.  Luckily they managed to without being trodden on too badly or being worried by being enveloped by people.  They both did me proud.  Nettie came 2nd in her Special Puppy Class and Pearl came 2nd in her Special Junior Class, with a substantial entry of 14 quality dogs.

On a much more somber note we are devastated to report the loss of Zar.  We are still working to find out why but it has been tough to come to terms with the loss of such a beautiful boy at such a tender age.  We hope that he will enjoy being free, chasing flies in the sky.
