Dawn helps with the trimming at the North East meet

North East Natterings by Mark our reporter
Excellent weather for the time of year in the North East, very mild, excellent walking weather for us all & the dogs. Lots of scents in the air for the dogs, you try to keep them in the house. All the vermin are on the move at present, so if you have sheds, garages, lean tos, etc & have any stocks of food in them, beware, you will attract the vermin. Ensure your potatoes, vegetables, sacks of dog food, etc are well packed away securely. My mouse & rat traps are already hard at work, with several strikes already. Last year, before I realised, the mouse & rats had devoured a full sack of dog food. Trapped 26 mice in a week in my unused garage.
Sunday saw the North East gettogether for all owners of Bedlington Terriers, as usual it was 3 hours enjoyed by all, this meet saw another 3 new couples with Bedlingtons turn up for the first time. These people were pet owners who thought it brilliant that they could meet up with other like minded people & pick everyones brains (didnt take long LOL). All had several questions to ask & went away armed with web site details to purchase everything from clippers to Thornit & of course the site details for the Blog & NBTC.
I am sure that Lesley will be sharing a few more of the snaps in the coming weeks.
Heres a thought, why don't we Bedlington owners attending the last champ show of the year at LKA, have a bit of a party? I am sure if we all bring a bit of ''tucker'' we could knock up a buffet, for after the judging? Good idea / bad idea?
See some of yer Saturday, good luck to all!
Thanks Mark, ( these reports are fantastic, they certainly add a sparkle to the blog. If you can help, we are still looking for some kind people to write a few lines in the East of England, Southwest, and Scotland) Count me in on the party Mark!
PS keep the captions coming on the photo competition, this is a lot of fun!

Nice idea. Sorry to be a bit of a party pooper but if I remember rightly the LKA put a damper on Xmas parties a few years ago as they were getting out of hand. A call to the Secretary for clarification may save disappointment and unpleasantness.
