Dec 30th
Our last show of the year was at Godmanchester a 3 day show. Again it was quite a good entry so perhaps things are looking up. Hattie won her post grad class and was Reserve Best of Breed. Polly on her first outing since having the pups was a creditable 3rd in open so a good day for us.

We went to a local open show today. The weather was dry whoopee although it was very muddy still. It was a good entry and Hattie came 2nd in a strong post grad classs which we were really pleased with. She seems to have got the hang of how to behave in the ring at last.

Today Hattie and I made the long journey north to Doncaster for the MESSS Champ Show. I wasn't too sure what to expect as Hattie hadn't been to a show since the beginning of August. however she behaved beautifully and came 2nd in Graduate and 1st in Post Graduate meaning she has now qualified for Crufts next March. It was a lovely day only spoilt by the horrendous journey home which took 5 3/4 hours instead of 3hrs. Still it was worth it

The puppies have all left us for their new homes now. They were great fun and the house seems very empty without them. I hope they are settling nicely and behaving themselves. Now to get back to showing with a show on Sunday for Hattie. Polly starts her diet today to get her back to full fitness.

The puppies were all checked by the vet today and he thought they are a lovely healthy litter. They are growing daily and developing their own characters. I could spend ages just watching them.
