Newton Heath, Wyre, Foster dog, Rugby and Kaiser!

Phew thats a lot of subjects to cover!

Ok Newton Heath first - a nice but very hectic show, just two runs for Mediums but Cads bless him wanted three! So we had a run-off chuckle! He had a run-off for 3rd and 4th in Medium Combined 4-5 Jumping and won the run-off. Also he came 2nd in Medium Graded 4-5 Agiliy. Bless him little Jaf came 6th in Combined 4-5 Jumping. No clears for the rest of the dogs but they all did some nice bits.

Wyre - just me at Wyre as Roger stayed home to look after Josie (who is fine now thank goodness!) The only place was Cads got 2nd in Medium Combined 3-5 Agility, he was going lovely in the KC Olympia 1-7 and then with 3 things to go went back up the a-frame - he was in good company as quite a few did that and his jumping course was 4-5 but set at about grade 8 - so we had fun but an E. No clears from JaiJai or Fleet - best runs being a lovely run each with just 5 faults. JaiJai is such fun to run but boy do you have to think quickly!

Yayyyyyyy Blue the Foster Dog has a new home - Cathy and Steve who train at North Downs with us now have Blue living with them - its a lovely place for him to be so fingers crossed things work out ok.

Rugby for me is the start of the festive season - the car park had tarmac wow! This does not sound much but normally it had a foot of mud and you take most of it home in the van! Cads runs were 1-7 and he did a messy clear in the jumping, in the agility I nearly ran into a jump! Cads was still clear despite me and only just out of the places. The course was in the shape of an M so rather up and down. Roger was still resting Josie so stayed home and I ran JaiJai - he was a bit mad in his agility and was doing fab in the jumping with just one pole down then I got out of position doh! Fleets agility was an interesting course and he worked it well but....I nearly went up the a-frame!! I did a reverse just before the a-frame and then as I turned I had not quite gone wide enough so had to put my hands out and onto the a-frame to stop myself running into it!! Fleet got 12th in one of the parts of 1-7 Jumping so I was pleased about that in that kind of company - he is Grade 5 and there were good Grade 7 and 6 dogs called out before they got to his name :)

Today I picked Kaiser up - I am typing this quickly while he had a quick nap! He is adorable - I promise to take some photos as soon as I get a a chance. He has been introduced to the rest of our mob - Cadbury really likes him and they have been playing - Josie and Rip are the ones that have to be kept away from pups - funny that they are both Rogers dogs!!

So an exciting and busy time ahead - I don't have a show for over a month now and it will be nice to chill out with the dogs and get them all used to Kaiser and get him used to loads of things while he is growing up.

I hope all the blog readers are well and having fun with their dogs.
