Bellingham Show day. The road workmen have had the good grace to remove their barriers, cones and ‘no access’ signs for the occasion. I had to miss the show because of family business in Edinburgh. K went with her cousin J taking the Bouvier with her, but there was no category for him. An attempt was made to smuggle him in with the Child Pet Dogs, and one of J’s small daughters was game for it, but when it came to answering the judge’s question “how old is your dog?” her answer was “he’s not my dog”. That put paid to Fluffy’s competitive season this year.
K met the Farmer on the Show ground, and commented on the absence of sheep this year. “I feel undressed without them here” was his comment.
