Dog of Courage 2011
This is a photo of my brother Kaska which some of you may have seen on an earlier blog of mine. This picture was taken when Kaska got his wheels to help him walk after a spinal injury. It was entered in a competition run on-line by the Diana Brimblecombe Animal Rescue Centre as a 'Virtual Dog Show' with many different categories. Kaska's picture and the story of how he has coped with his disability won him the Dog of Courage award and a rosette and shield:
His awards arrived in the post today!
There were many lovely photos of dogs in the competition and other heart-tugging tales of dogs of courage. If you would like to read Kaska's story - and see the others too they are on the website at:
He won category M. .and I did actually win a little rosette myself for coming second in the most appealing eyes category (K)...and there was a cute little schnauzer pup in the first category too. Schnauzers did well in this competition!
Here I am with my rosette. I did try to see if I could eat it but unfortunately not - that's why Leigh moved it out of the way of my mouth for the picture! An edible prize would have been welcome in my view. P.S. I have managed to qualify for Crufts after all at a Championship Show in Wetherby but there's talk of me having puppies next year - whispers going round that I'm not supposed to hear so I will have to wait and let you know when I find out if the rumours are true! Here's one more picture of my brother with his awards as today's blog is really for him:
