Message from Stan

Friday 10th April 2015

Stan is a Lola baby (born 8/1/15) - he has sent a postcard back to us:

Dear Mummy Dawn.

Hello I thought as I'm three months old today I'd tell you what I've been getting up to! It's good here and Sue and Pete are okay!!

They say I'm very good. I love my bed and recently have started to get in my bed as soon as I'm told at bed time. The vet man - he's okay and says I'm very handsome (must not get big headed) there are nice ladies there too who like to give me a tickle, I like those a lot anytime and I also like a cuddle, Pete's really cool at cuddles. I love my food by why do scrambled eggs take such a long time to cool down - I seem to wait ages!!!

I like all the people I have meet and no one has been scary, lots of people have brought me presents and I have a big toy box which is in the room with the red sofa which I'm allowed on, I can look out of the window from there which is cool. I also have a bed in that room, I like it and have learnt to hump it. Pete and the vet laughed about that but Sue said I was much to young to do such things!!

Going out in the car is good and we have been out a lot, I have had to be carried which has been okay but I'm getting bored with that but the vet man said I have had to wait to walk because of the foxes that live around here but nearly there. I like my collar and lead now that I have got used to it and I have also got a harness thing. I have done a lot of gardening, think it's helpful but not sure! Love the thing called the hose pipe - water is great fun and ended being wrapped in a towel to today to get dry. Great fun in the warm sun. Pete said I can help get the summer house ready for summer tomorrow, think I will be a help don't you.

Will send you pictures as I get older.

Lots of love and kisses Stan.

One Champion, A night in Vera and 730 miles....

Thursday 2nd April 2015

Rita and I left home at 8 pm on Friday night (27th March 2015) We were on our way to Scotland to show at Scottish Breeds and CTC champshipship dog shows. 

We stopped off at Tebay services on the way up to walk the doggies and then plodded our way to Scotland arriving at our overnight stop at 2 am in the morning! We spent the first night in Vera (The Van!) it was quite cosy, the dogs seemed to enjoy our company but the rain did wake us up once or twice. 

On Saturday we trundled off to Scottish Breeds. We had quite a good show with Dexter winning Limit and Amy 2nd in Open

We visited the Falkirk Wheel, Kelpies and had a cream tea on the Saturday afternoon then we spent Saturday night with friends and had a lovely relaxed evening watching the dogs play in their garden and enjoying one or two glasses of wine and a fish supper

Sunday - we made our way to the beautiful settling of the Alva, the venue for the CTC Champ show to show under judge Jeanette Smith. 

We were thrilled with our day as Jeanette awarded Amy the CC, RBIS and BOS. This was Amy's 3rd CC meaning she is now a UK champion! 

We didn't really notice the 6 hr journey home.....

in 51 hours we drove 730 miles!
