Holiday Part 1 - Scotland!

We have had such a busy, fun 10 days that I don't know where to start!! We travelled up to see my Dad a week last friday and then went on to Dundee show on the saturday and sunday. Dundee is half way between my Mum and Dads so it was a good opportunity for my Mum and sis to come and see some agility. Thanks to them for driving to spend the day with us - it was lovely weather and we had a good catch up! (No videos for sat as too busy talking!) Agility wise we had a bad day as Brodie struggled with the weaves in both classes coming out half way which is very unlike him. I found he was quite tight across his back so missed the last class and gave him a good massage that night which seemed to help. Brax decided she was allergic to contacts again but at least we had the best picnic ever that my Mum had packed!! They had Tresca with them and it was her first time in a show envrionment and she was such a good girl, taking in all the sights.
Brax really loved having her 'nanna' to snuggle up with!

On the sunday we had Champ and both of us made it through to the finals! Brodie ended up 5th and Brax ended up 4th so very proud of the shelties :) Neither of them were miles behind the reserve time so they did well. Well done to Lian, Sipzie and Sizzle won had numerous wins at Dundee, super shelties!

Brax Dundee Champ Final (nice contacts to make up for saturday!)

Brodie Dundee Champ Final - his weaves were still a bit slow but he ran well.

Brooke also had a lot of fun at Dundee playing in the lovely country park with Matthew, in this video she is 23 weeks old.

After all that running around we went back to my Dads for a couple of days and had some lovely meals and relaxing walks on the beach. On the Monday we took the dogs into Edinburgh on the train and walked round the city, also watched bits of the festival on the Royal Mile.

Me and the woofs on the Royal Mile next to a 'tardis'!!
Brooke had a nice sleep on the pavement while we ate lunch - awwww bless!When we got back to my Dads they all crashed out in his kitchen - Brooke stole Peppers bed, Brax took the aga spot and Brodie was a gentleman and had the floor :)We went for a trip round Dirleton castle on the Tuesday and the gardens were amazing for the time of year. After that we had a lovely pub lunch and then walked the dogs along the coast back to my Dads (Brooke got carried for some of it!) Later on we went to North Berwick and although it was windy, the sun was out. Photo should have been nice but Brooke got bored!!

Think thats Part 1 done - more news later!
