Saturday we spent the day at Slaley Show, an agricultural show in a small Northumberland village. It’s a nice small show, but quite a lot to see. Tony was busy with the Dry Stone Wallers, who had a display in their marquee, but also built a demonstration wall through the day.
We looked round the show, supervised the wall building, and then took part in the small dog show. There were fun classes first – I came second in the Veteran class. We then entered the serious working classes: Ossie was the only entry entered in the ‘other terrier class’, so the judge persuaded Tony and Sarah to enter the rest of us. The judge obviously likes sturdy terriers, so I won, then Ossie and Ed were 2nd and 3rd. He commented that we were all very friendly; he’d had a bad experience, nearly losing a finger judging a bedlington class in the past. Here we are at the end of the day, trying out the stone seat that the Wallers built. Love from Rosie
Well Rosie sounds like you had a fun day and came hope with lots of ribbons. Well done for your second in veteran. How long did it take for Tony and the wallers to build the dry stone wall? It is very impressive!
