Bru is home and Harry Potter!

My friends Cathy, Annabel and I went to the Harry Potter tour on friday, it was amazing! So much to see and despite being there for three and a bit hours it felt like we only scratched the surface!

Although I hate my photo being taken I couldn't resist a platform 9 3/4 picture!

The model of Hogwarts is breath taking!!

In other news we collected Bru on Thursday 22nd June :-) He has been taken under his wing by Auntie Bean who is motherly enough to let him suckle! She is such a sweetie :-)

On Saturday he went into St Albans in the morning and we had coffee out and carried him around the market. He met some lovely people for cuddles in Cafe Nero!

Time to recharge the batteries as he went out to a BBQ Saturday evening!

Just to add to the chaos of having a new puppy we also had Bailey collie staying! They enjoyed going out for walkies to have some peace and quiet!

We have been playing around with putting front feet on things, sit, nose touches and lots of play so far. He is keen and up for it but not very foody at the moment so will keep going with his toy play as he loves to tug!

As far as agility goes we have hardly done any! Their last show was 10th June and due to temperatures in the 30's last week I haven't done much with them training wise. Off to a show tomorrow so goodness knows what will happen but the break has probably done them good :-)

So much news!!

Finding out that someone other than my Mum reads my blog has spurred me on to write a post! I don't however know where to start as so much has happened in the last month...I have been to Scotland twice, done my first champ class with Spark, had some lovely family get togethers and found the next canine member of our family! 

So we went up to Scotland with the dogs to see my Dad and go to SKC show which was at Ingliston. Weird being back there as we used to show ponies there! It was also mine and Sparks first ever champ class...eeek! My goal was to not get E'd in at least one of the rounds and she smashed that and won the champ jumping round!! Super Sparkalina! :-D I couldn't believe it! We got E'd in the agility but stayed on to support Lian in the final and Brooke's brother Sonic...worth staying as they won the ticket!!!

Here is Sparks jumping run

The doglets also enjoyed racing around on the beach next to my Dads!

Next trip away was me on my own up to see my Mum and sister. I owe so much to Matthew for looking after the dogs so I could go and have some girly time away! We saw Sister Act at the theatre which was amazing and had some super walks and meals, very special and lots of lovely memories.

 Apart from all the travelling around we have done a few shows down here as well, the doglets are running really nicely. Brooke has been starting to do agility runs in the ring and is getting placed consistently when she goes clear. Brodie at 10.5 is loving the lower height classes and approves of the new 5m spacing as does Spark who is much happier now she can power on through a course more. Did a show yesterday at Bitz n Bobz and they were such clever doglets! Toad and Beans puppies are now 2.5 years old and the two tri's are Grade 4 and Squidge has just gone Grade 5! Maverick has been to stay this weekend and loves seeing his folks :-D

From L-R Sparkle, Brooke, Brodie, Rommy and Squidge who all got placed at Bitz! Go J9-ers!

And in more exciting news we have a new addition coming shortly! This is Licosateria Final Frontier (who doesn't have a pet name yet but is currently called Pickle!) He is six weeks old at the moment and is Brooke's nephew. Sad that we won't be having a Braxway boy of our own but this is a cousin to the boys and will be Matthews to train and run. He is just adorable and very naughty!!!
