Easter eggs!

Just a quick post to catch up on this weekend. I will post more details tomorrow when I can sit down and type type type!

Good things:

  • Nicky and Indy went Advanced! (grade 7!) I am so proud of them.

  • One of Monty's pups in Denmark (Sunny) won a Best of Breed at 12 month old! Beauty and Brains!

  • Zen had 6 runs this weekend and went clean in everyone! 100 % clear runs! She won me 4 easter eggs (we got huge chocolate easter eggs for every 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. Zen won 2 first places, 2 second places, 1 fourth place and 1 sixth place. I was so pleased as there was some great competition on the medium classes this weekend. Her three Crufts team-mates were all there competing and they are all so very very good! So I felt great accomplishment to place well in that league of competitors.

  • Hex was WICKED GOOD! Not as consistant as Zen, but only due to some minor errors. She ran 3 clears out of 6 and all three were FIRST PLACES! (and three easter eggs) Again she was running against some super dogs and I was so pleased to see how she compared against the big guns.

  • We camped at the show and had a great time seeing Marion and Tim and catching up with Andy and Nancy. Dennis BBQ'd all weekend and relaxed which he needed.

  • Dennis took loads of photos of both our dogs and other dogs. I need to go thru them and figure out whose dogs they are! Some of the photos are breathtaking.

  • I got to see Zen's babies Zoe and Kizzy! AND Hob-b's baby boy Todd.

Bad things:

  • Lian's little sheltie Titan was injured. Fingers crossed he will be ok.
  • Coming home to find a large bird got into the house thru the chimney! Bird poop and broken items all over the dining room and hallway. How does one clean bird poop off the carpet? Arghhhhhh! And sadly a dead bird at the end of it all.

Sorry to hear about the bird, hope the poor bird didn't smashed up your valuable and priceless throphies.

Titan is back to himself now.
