Winter Arrives In Wales

sols                                                         Novemeber 2010

Good morning, Bloggers. It's been bitterly cold here and looks like winter has arrived early. Last year the first heavy snow fell at the beginning of November so I hope we don't have a repeat this year. Despite the Rugby result, there's one very happy chappie in Wales - Tim Bouse. He was delighted to win the RDCC at the BTA show on Saturday. The last time Tim won such an award, with one of his dogs, was when The Joinery Boy got the RDCC at WKC in 1989. The DCC winner was none other than Ch. Vistablue Nelson Touch. The BCC was awarded to Ch. Craglough Coryanthus. RBCC went to Ch. Rathsrigg Rani. I bet that brings back memories to some of you.
We heard the sad news this morning that Sandra and Tony Waller have lost Blue - Rotherview Blue Comet. Blue had strong Welsh connections having sired Elwyn and Maureen Wrights Ch. Toffset Treasure Trove and Paula O'Leary's Ch. Bakabakas Evening shadow which was bred by Kevin Mumford. He was also grandfather to our Solo.
I've had a bust week getting four dogs ready for the MBTC seminar at Tollerton. Larry is loving all the attention and is acting like a puppy even though he will be thirteen next month! Hope to see some of you there on Saturday. Enid

Thank you Enid it was really great to see Tiim win the RDCC on Sarturday. Congtats Tim, trust  this is the first of many! Hope everyone has an enjoyable day at the Seminar, I wonder if Sandra will be making her delicious trifle for lunch?
My thoughts are with Sandra and Tony with the loss of “Blue”.  It’s been a sad week with two much loved dogs passing on!

The photo is from last year - it hasn't snowed yet.
Unfortunately, Sandra and Tony will not be at the seminar as they are too upset over their loss of Blue.

hi,
Sandra & Tony,
You would not be the caring people you are if the loss of a dear and treasured friend did not leave you emotionally drained, the rainbow bridge is a magical place to be reunited with our K9 friends, how will we cope with all the licks and kisses.

Enid, you can keep the winter down your end of the country. Eileen and Lesley from this end are going to the seminar.

Bring another couple of Kens books if you have any as Eileen only has one left to sell.
