We're still enjoying a few days away in Suffolk and spotted a poster for the  All About Dogs charity dogs show at Norwich showground over the Bank Holiday.  So off we trundled on Monday. They had over 400 dogs registered for the various events apparently. So for a bit of fun we entered Yogi in the heavily supported class, about 60 entries, because everyone thinks their own dog is the 'Most Handsome Dog'. This is how Yogi limbered up for the class.

Well the judge thought that Yogi was the most handsome.   How pround were we.   Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Summer 'Poo Camp

We have had some lovely house guests over the last few weeks on their holidays and all of them have been Ziggy's children. Firstly Daisy (Bella x Ziggy) came for the whole summer, Basil (Bramble x Ziggy) joined us for just two weeks and the day before yesterday Alfie (Lucy x Ziggy) and Milo (Lily x Ziggy) arrived for two nights. So with a full team Ella and I had a lovely evening walk with our visitors and our own boys all playing together. As you can see a great time was had by all.

Our two golden girls have arrived

As we will be retiring both Honey and Rose at the end of this summer we have been looking for two future girls to step into their shoes. Yesterday we collected two litter sisters that eventually we hope will take up that mantle.

Dippy is that darker one, so named as she has a white dipstick on the end of her tail, and Florence is the paler one. Their mother is a deep fox red working gun dog who is sooooo sweet natured and steady in the field and dad is a chocolate working dog. They have settled in beautifully but it will be some weeks before they are fully vaccinated and big enough to run with the older girls.
