Stepping back a week or so on the 9th/10th June we took a trip North to the Wyre show held in the lovely countryside at Cartmel - we normally always do Thames but this year Ripley had qualified for the "It Barks" Veteran Jumping Final - our friend Sue White had also qualified her dog Flea and had asked Roger if he would like to be in the final with Flea as Sue had Champ Classes and Euk Qualifiers at Thames and she was able to nominate a surrogate handler - Roger jumped at the chance to do this as he has always loved Flea. Also on the video is our friend Nigel and his oldie Fly.
Rip came 2nd and Flea came 3rd in the Final so we were very proud of them. Nigel and Fly won the non BC/WSD Final.
Even without a final to compete in next year I would very much like to go to the Wyre show again - there really is no comparision the beautiful venue of Cartmel racecourse versus Newbury by the side of the M4/A34....!!
