Autumn Walks

We have been blessed with some good weather this week, it would be lovely if this dry spell continues into next week for half term.

It has been great to take advantage of the dry weather and have managed some nice walks over the previous week.  We have found a lovely walk in the Preselli's, not too far from home and the children would like to take their bikes next time as it has a bike route.

Have spent a lovely morning walking the dogs through Sealyham, one of our favourite walks.  It was quite magical there today walking through a carpet of fallen leaves.  The dogs had a great time racing through the woods, it's always a pleasure watching there natural ability come to life.  We stopped for a swim at the quarry, where the water had a layer of leaves on it and the dogs were doing water retrieves whilst the leaves fell on them.

South Wales Kennel Association Champ Show

Our last champ show of the year, and we went out on a high!

Cooper and Nutmeg made the journey for their showing debut, Coopers first Champ show and Nutmeg's first show.

Cooper won Junior Dog, and came 2nd in Post Grad, Dawn did a really good job and didn't look at all nervous.  Nutmeg had a 2nd in Junior Bitch.  Both will be accompanying Millie now to Crufts next year, and will be an extra special get together.  Tasha handled Tilly and did a superb job winning Post Grad Bitch, she took her back back in the ring for the challenge and was awarded Best Bitch.  We were well and truly over the moon.

Ruth had brought Fae along for the puppy class with the munsters, where she gained a 2nd place.  Trio also had a 2nd in Post Grad, and Maddie won the Open Bitch class, and was awarded Best Bitch.

Tilly, Nutmeg and Cooper.
Absolutely thrilled with day, one which will be hard to beat.  Thanks have to go to Cooper's, Nutmeg's and Fea's families for bringing them along and being such good company.

Mini Munster Meet

We managed a small munster gathering yesterday at Newgale beach.  The weather had a definite autumnal feel to it, a cool wind and a short burst of hail, but the sun did make an appearance!

The five munsters, along with Harvey had a great time racing in and out of the sea and retrieving to their hearts content.  Eleanor was an enthuasiastic ball thrower, and came home almost as wet as the dogs!

The walk was finished off with some Tiffin provided by Helen and tea from Jan.  Sorry that we couldn't stay for the tea Jan, but the Tiffin was delicious!
