Last weekend was our first trip to Blackpool Show. It was a fabulous sunny day and the paps looked great in the sunshine. Asher wasn’t shown so I was able to watch judging and relax. I do think it’s a pity that they didn’t have in/out tents as at most shows. It’s much kinder to the dogs and exhibitors on hot sunny days. There was a slight hiccup in the weather during judging of the open dog class when a mini tornado entered a nearby ring and hurled papers, place cards and sunshades many feet into the air. There followed quite a commotion which took a while to subside, fortunately there were no injuries as sunshades fell to ground.
