Yesterday was August Bank Holiday Monday in the UK which means that everyone gets an extra day off work. Yay!
We decided to go to Littlewick Show as despite it being on every year for as long as I can remember, I've never been before.
The weather was absolutely disgusting so it was a real shame as usually it's really warm and sunny but it was just tipping it down with rain all day.
We missed the vintage car show which I was really annoyed about and thought we had missed the dog show but luckily we were just in time to enter.
Despite the weather we weren't the only crazy people there to compete.
We entered Bear into 3 classes.
- Pedigree Non Sporting Breed
- Pedigree Open and
- Judges Choice (a novelty class)
He came first in his first two classes and 2nd in Judges Choice. He was selected by the Pedigree Judge to enter Pedigree Best in Show which he won reserve (2nd place) for!
Bambi was also entered into 3 classes.
- Pedigree Non Sporting
- Pedigree Open
- Prettiest Bitch (a novelty class)
She placed 3rd in Pedigree Non Sporting and 2nd in Pedigree Open. We missed Prettiest Bitch as it was on at the same time that we were competing in the other ring.
I'm really proud of both of them. Bambi was a bit naughty as the judging was based on Kennel Club rules which meant that they had to be looked over on a judging table (like you see on TV at Crufts) - she had to have her teen checked which she really hates as she has some dental issues which can make her mouth a bit sore at times, so she wasn't very friendly to the judge and wouldn't show her teeth, other than by growling at her and trying to bite her.
Very embarassing! Haha!
Here we are before we both got absolutely drenched in the competition ring (which was outside in torrential rain!)
I had a great time despite the weather and even picked up a really cute and kitsch little ornament from one of the stalls that was there raising money for a local animal shelter.
Sorry for the lack of pictures in this post. It was grey, wet and disgusting so not really great picture weather.
