FUN is spelt D O G

Wow - what a day !
I've had a really great time at the Crosby Ravensworth show today, judging the dogs ......... and one pooch appears a dead lookalike for Honey ! This is what she'll look like when fully grown :)

Country shows are fantastic. If ever there was a day when local people come together than it has to be on days like today.

I was joined on this evening's walk by Fran, who took some photos of the dogs I currently have. Unfortunately Barney's pics were not good enough to post - sorry Barney. You'll be included next time !

I hope you haven't dognapped Honey !

Fran Ardley the Gun Dog Trainer

While Rachel is a trainer and partner in Cumbria Dog Training, my other daughter is a professional in gun dog trainer. Fran has been training dogs for owners from all over  the UK, as well as being asked to judge dogs in in the very male world of trialling. Not bad for a young lady still in her 20's ! Paul's six month old Working Cocker Spaniel Ella loves riding in the cars. She has tremendous spring in her skinny legs and gets into the back of the Hilux with little effort. It's a different story when it's time to leave. She's been trained never to jump out but to be patient and wait for her owner to pick her up, thereby preventing injuries ..... and vets bills !! When are we going to be there Dad ? Boarding dogs Charlie and his brother Alfie are staying with me for a few days, and as can be seen, a ball is something that creates a real bond. These two young dogs are lovely characters. Is this the cool way to carry a ball ? Scarlett, a yo
