Many thanks to Jonna and Knut for letting us invade their home we had a fabulous time. AND especially to Jonna for all her amazing cooking xxx
Our annual visit to Balegone and Gundog Breeds of Scotland.
The judge this year was Graham Lambert. Thomas was second in his Junior class, Remus came third in his Limit Class and the tiny little "Ida" Rainesgift Bide Your Time came first in her first Minor Puppy Class. Her sister Rainesgift It's About Time "Aggie" owned by Emma Curtis was third in the class qualifying them both for Crufts.
September was taken up by guests with Bizzie and her daughter Saffie (by Remus) staying with us for three weeks whilst David visited China. These have become to be three special weeks for us as Saffie having had her skull crushed and losing her eye as a puupy later lost her life to a tumour on the brain. She was a brilliant little dog and never her dissability stop her enjoying life. We adored having her as a family and will always remember her x
