Thank you to everyone who have written to me saying  how much they have enjoyed the blog over the last 8 years. I have received lovely emails and cards from Bedlington  fanciers world wide.  Although I will not be updating the blog it will remain on line for you to look through the archives and enjoy the Crufts photos Jon has taken since 2001.

Thanks to Gavin Carter for the top 2 pictures.

Nearly Ready

 

IMG_3105

We’ve had a busy time recently – Sarah and Tony were off playing in the snow in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago, so we had our holidays too. Ed and Ossie have a nice time on their ‘farm stay’ and Rosie and I go and stay with friends. Some people might have spotted us out in Consett, and we even went to the beach one day. We were happy and didn’t miss home too much.
We’ve been back in our normal routine for the past couple of weeks, and we’ve all been getting tidied up for Discover dogs on Friday. I really don’t enjoy being groomed, I get very stroppy, so have to have a little bit done each day. I know that’s hard to believe, when I am such a friendly boy on the DD stand. Here I’m about half-done, just need front legs and head finishing.
I will be ready for Friday, and I’m fit and well ; much better than last year, when I was so poorly after my stroke. Looking forward to seeing every one at Crufs
Love from Jasper

So pleased you are going tomorrow I will come and say hello, wonderful to read you are really well after your stroke. Our old lady Fudge who is nearly 16 loves cuddles and  is going to be on the stand on Saturday.
