All the Walshaws out to play, I wonder who is in front?
Congratulations to Steve & Sharon, on their new addition.
I am advised that we will have a new show team hitting the ring at Sunderland on 16th December, good luck & remember, you are there to enjoy it! Schedules are now out for Northern Counties Sporting Terrier on 15th March, to be held at West Cornforth (home of the Get Together). Breed specialist judge for Bedlingtons, Alan Vernall. Its the ruby Anniversary show, so plenty of rosettes up for grabs in the classes. We are spoilt for choice for shows scheduling Bedlingtons in February in the North East with breed specialist judges featuring at 3 shows, hopefully they will receive good entries, from the area & possibly others from further afield? The next North East get together is now scheduled for 13th January, pop the date into your diary.This will be the 8th such event.
Suggestion: How about sharing the Thursday North East update around? Different people in the North East could write articles? If you are interested, let Lesley know.
I saw this story & it reminded me of the blog?
An old man, a boy & a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey & the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking & the boy was riding.The man & boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later, they passed some people that remarked, 'What a shame, he makes that little boy walk'!.They then decided they both would walk! Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey.Now they passed some people that shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy & man said they were probably right, so they decide to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal & he fell into the river and drowned.
The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, you might as well...
Kiss your ass goodbye! Have A Nice Day & Be Careful With Your Donkey.
Cheers Mark
Thanks Mark. It is certainly difficult at times to keep everyone happy, being positive rather than negative is always better.! Just let me know if you could help Mark with the weekly Northern report, the bigger the blog reporting team the better! Marie has kindly offered to help with Scotland but we still need a reporter for the Kent and the South East.

i'm knackered!
been out beating today with the shoot at the farm where ann-maries horse is kept.
didn't realise how hard it would be.
people just think you beat a few bushes but also you have to climb up hill sides, climb through woodland.
it was a good experience.
found paths near us i didn't even know existed.
it was also good to see a good range of gun dogs.

blue is growing by the day.
