Mutterings from Mark in the North East
Not a bad week weather wise in the North East, good frosts, meaning plenty of scent in the air for the dogs! No dog shows this weekend, so no doubt I will have to do some Christmas shopping, cant wait! A good day was had at Sunderland show at the weekend, with plenty of good banter, who would believe that both Steve & me would be bidding against each other on e-bay for the same clippers? If we are to keep our classes at the North East canine societies for Bedlingtons, you must put your entries in. It does appear however that we are spoilt for choice with shows scheduled on average every 2 weeks, makes for hard work at times, sometimes I think I will give it a miss & have a sleep in. The bedlington terrier get together night out proved to be a very enjoyable night, with wine in abundance & food which was actually very palatable. We also enjoyed a good laugh at our local ring craft group Christmas party, I could not believe that it was possible to win as many prizes in one evening! The pie & peas, cream trifle, chocolates, crisps & champagne were enjoyed immensely. On a personal note many thanks to everyone for the congratulations that Jan & I have received for 'M', via cards, e-mail & verbal, it is very much appreciated & shows that the bedlington fraternity on a whole are a good bunch. May Jan & I take this final opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas & a prosperous 2008 (if we forgot your Christmas card, our apologies, it all seemed to creep up on us!) .
Mark & Jan
Thanks Mark you have certainly had some fun Christmas doggie parties. I wish I lived nearby to join in all the fun !
