The evenings are getting darker and temperatures are dropping. It will soon be the countdown to Christmas! One of our local garden centres opens its Christmas section in three weeks. There are still quite a few Championship Shows left this year, I wonder if the gradual general decline in entries will continue into 2019.
Richmond Championship Show
Lovely weather for the show Sunday with some warm sunshine. It was good to see the paps showing off outside. On a personal note my son Jon and I had a fabulous day at Richmond with Asher being awarded his crowning CC. We have already made up Rambo but to own and handle a dog to his title is even more special. I will always remember the day. Thank you to the many pap peeps who congratulated us on the day, on fb and by message.
