Tunbridge wells and Bats

I had to post this picture of Lorna at Tunbridge wells with Bill and Pias gorgeous baby Max:0) and also this picture of my birthday pressie from Lorna, its gorgeous and it looks so like Todd.

Jess and I had some really nice runs at Tunbridge wells, a lot of them had a nearly in them but I am really pleased with her contacts at the moment, and we got a nice place in the agility on the Sunday. Corrie came 4th in her Novice kennel club qualifier, which I am really pleased about but last year she came 4th in nearly every one that she did and I would really love her to qualify for this event, she is such a consistent little dog, and she runs her heart out.......... oh well a few more left to go and perhaps I should throw caution to the wind and just blast her off her contacts and hope she gets them, she is just a monkey on the dog walk if I release her too quickly :0) and BATS she came 9th in the KC qualifier as I held her far too long on her dogwalk and it was a very fast course.
Todd has had a nail bed infection for the last couple of weeks so he is on antibiotics and a foot bath twice a day, so hopefully it will be better soon, they really are a pain though as they just seem to take forever to heal up.

Todays walk in pictures

I have just gotten back from the most gorgeous walk by the river, here it is in pictures ! Note the lack of Tikka in the water pictures he he he she HATES WATER ! I will start with a picture of Ducklings, as they are just soooo cute and end up with a picture which doesn't usually happen all dogs together looking the same way and no one blocking the other one out !!

Catch up again !!!!

The last couple of weeks have just flown by, I have been working really hard on my new cat site, and doing a fair bit of training with both Jess and Todd.
My Daughter was sixteen on the 28th of April, where have the last 16 years gone ! she had a lovely day, and was spoilt rotten.... mmm I would have posted a lovely picture of Meg but she wouldnt let me lol !!!
A couple of weeks ago a few of us went to Bernadette’s to see Johanna and do a bit of training, which was really enjoyable, and Lunch was yummy too :0), also had a cuddle with the pups who have grown so much and are just gorgeous, Jess met little mouse and here is a lovely picture courtesy of Dennis of the meeting ! How cute is that.

We did the two day UKA show on Saturday and Sunday, Jess came 2nd in the Senior jumping on the Saturday, and in the royal canin she did a lovely run but I pushed her dog walk too far and pulled her off, which was a shame as her turns in this class were really tight and neat, and I even managed to a PUSH ROUND !! I ran Todd NFC on Sunday in the nursery class and was very pleased with the result, his contacts were really good and he powered to the bottom of both of them, I really like the fact that you can train your dog in the ring at these shows, I think it is so nice for a young dog to receive the reinforcement that we use in training in the ring, and I am sure that it can help stop them discriminating in the ring, well that’s my thought anyway !! Watch this spot !!
Vyne was on Monday, and Jess came 7th in grade 6 jumping, and that was it, her other 2 runs were not clear but I am generally really pleased with the way that we are working together this year.

Yesterday the team left for Belgium to compete in the IFCS world champs so loads of Luck to them all, especially Chris and Cap, reports to follow ...........

Lastly I have been attacking my garden, and the results are pretty pleasing !! I think summer has come at long last and here a couple of pictures of my favourite flowers and blossoms in my garden at the moment........... oh and Todd and I love this picture of Tikka it sum's her up completely.... in the words of Catherine Tate .... Bothered !!!
