Tunbridge Wells

Can't remember the last time I went to a show alone but as the other love of Ryan's life (Chelsea)had a very big game on Sunday he decided to stay at home with Dad and cheer them on.So for the first time in a very long time (I don't even train him anymore as Ryan has taken him over completely)Tippex and I were reunited.We had so much fun and even came home with a rosette,4th in the Olympia qualifers,unfortunately for us the 1st and 2nd placed had not yet qualifed where as in the small the 3rd and 4th placed did qualify!!! In the Crufts singles we came 6th just out of the placings but picking up some valuable points,unfortunately as Ink is injured I haven't entered many shows so think I may have missed any further heats not even sure when they are!!The last run of the day was gr 6/7 jumping and he put in another fab round running his little socks off for me again just out of the placings not bad for an old man.Thanks to Ryan for letting me have him back although I'm not sure I'm ready to return him yet..... don't you have lots of homework to do this weekend???

Ink's Next Update

Well we went to the vets last Wednesday and she was very pleased with Ink's progress.She said that she could feel no abnormality around the knee and Ink showed no signs of any pain or discomfort in either the knee or the spine.So for the past week she has been allowed to go off lead for 5 minutes twice a day(she is also getting 1- 1 1/2 hrs a day on lead to help strengthen her muscles) and as she seems to be going from strength to strength she is allowed to progress to 10 minutes twice a day and back to see the vet again next Wednesday.I am pleased to report that we have a much happier Ink although she can't understand why she 's not allowed to play with the other two!
