Busy Having Fun!

Hello To All Our Blogging Friends,


Sapphire and Jazz here,  we have been busy and we haven't finished yet. Just over a week ago we were heading of in to Radnor Forest with Uncle Ian for a weekend of 4 x 4 Rallying. We had a good spot to marshal, we were 1/4 mile from the stage start, on some of fastest bit of forest road leading into a 90 degrees right bend where all the cars were snaking and braking to slow down enough to turn the corner. When Uncle Ian started cooking our sausage breakfast  all the competitors and marshals at the start line complained that with the smell of  bacon, eggs and  sausages  was making them hungry (Ha ha ha ). Once we had, our breakfast Jazz and I were at full throttle playing on the side road,  Uncle Ian kept a close eye on us. We shouted some support to our friend Phil Ibbotson who races a 4x4 MG METRO, he finished the event in 6th place.

Saturday’s weather was rain and wet snow but thank goodness it didn't stick and luckily Sundays weather wasn't to bad so we went to Colemere for a special walk for being so good.  Shropshire Greyhound Rescue was there with their greyhounds, the rescue team were manning a BBQ and 4 stalls  (Greyhound gifts, Tombola stall, lucky dip and a cake stand ). Uncle Ian was very good as he didn't buy any cakes,  he did say  that he was looking after his figure Jazz and I just laughed our heads off it was the best joke we have ever heard!

During the week we had lots of nice walks, we even went to Telacre Beech on the North Wales coast, Jazz and I had so much room to run and play together testing our 4 paw drive and we built a sand castle  we tried to bury Uncle Ian in the sand but he managed to escape.  Last weekend just we did two dog displays at Dreanford Lake by Whitchurch (very nice place indeed doggie fishing heaven).  Both of the displays went well  the weather forecast wasn't very good but to our surprise it wasn't to bad nice and dry on both days. It was sunny and warm on the Sunday so Granny, Jazz Uncle Ian and I had cups of tea and cakes down by the lake it was a lovely setting.


As for this weekend Jazz and I are going with Uncle Ian to the Shropshire County Show  (Uncle Ian said it's the new name for the West Mid Show) to do another dog display with the rest of the team. Jazz and I are getting really excited because there are.some big tractors demonstrating tractor pulling. In last night's Shropshire star (evening paper) Uncle Ian read that there will be a fly past over the show ground by 2 Hurricane and Spitfire air planes yipeeee! We will let you know how we get on. Uncle Ian has made Jazz and myself a cup of tea with a doggie biscuit to dip into it yum, yum, yum.Bye bye for now and we will write soon ( we promise)  Jazz and Sapphire
Thank you Jazz and Sapphire you certainly have  had a busy time, I expect Ian has something nice planned for this bank holiday weekend, have fun!
