As promised here is the news and photos from the WESWATC fun day. We had a great day, though I'm not sure if we'll be invited next year, for reasons which will become clear as you read, tee hee!
After the welcome from the organising committee, including David who is my breeder, the fun and games started. First up we did Musical chairs. I'm sure you all know how it works. Emily and Harry made sure they secured a chair early on!
Round and round and round we go, where the music stops, nobody know. Mummy is at the back in the green cardigan with me.
Phew, me & Mummy and Emily & Harry are still in.
It was all quite competitive, tee hee!
Emily & Harry got to the last 2, then got beaten by Poppy & her daddy, boo. But they got a prize and certificate for doing so well, whee!
Then it was time for "Run Grabbit Run". You have to run with you human, collects all the bits & bobs on the ground then carry them all back between you in the quickest time.
Daddy & Harry took it very seriously.
After that it was egg & spoon race time. Luckily they weren't real eggs, cos they got dropped lots and I think they would have been eaten by us all!
These were the final 2 from the heats, Jasper & Peggy with their human siblings. Jasper was the winner.
And Big Harry wore Oscar's cowboy outfit, though it was a little, ahem, snug! Mummy had to buy a bigger hat for him , as the once Butchy & Snicker's mum made looked ridiculous balanced on his HUGE head, tee hee!
I won 3rd prize, whee! Big Harry didn't win a prize, boo.
Here's another photo of my handsome big brother.
Here is my new friend Livvy. We met at grooming class last month. She is from Holland, but she now lives near me. Her mum is learning to hand strip her, and she won 2nd prize in best groomed dog, whee!
It was then time for the group photo, no mean feat as you can probably imagine! Can you spot us? We are on the front row near the middle.
And had to be pushed through the tunnel!
No photos, but I ran straight over the A frame, and whizzed through the tunnel and I got 1st place, whee!Also, we won 3 prizes on the raffle, Jessica won the "Guess which box the Bonio is in" competition and Emily won the "Give a name for a collective of Airedales" competition with "An Avalanche of Airedales"
So yes, we kind of swept the board on the prizes!! here are some of our winnings. The girls took some stuff home for their other doggy siblings that live at their mums house, and I had already taken some toys off to my bed and we'd eaten the yummy liver cake made by Jasper & Willow's mum and dad. We must ask mummy to get the recipe.
Do I look quite pleased with myself? Oh yes, we still have bare concrete floor thanks to moi? Did I ever tell you I pulled up all the lino one day & ripped it into teeny pieces. That was fun until I saw daddy's VERY cross face. Anyway, the kitchen is next to be decorated, so it will all be lovely again.
