Hello bloggy friends - this is Caoimhe here today doing a post about my trip to Darlington Dog Show. As some of you may know I've been not very well after being vaccinated last year and I'm trying to cope with scary situations better with the help of some homeopathic treatment from a special vet. Yesterday my peeps took me for a day out to a big dog show to see if I would be able to manage in the crowds ..and even in the show ring. It was a sunny day so the showing was being done outside on the grass. Here I am being prepared for my go in the ring.
I had a good view of everything going on from up on the grooming table :-)
There were lots of dogs there of all shapes and sizes - not just schnauzers. Huge ones like this wolfhound:
and this borzoi:
Spotty ones - like these dalmations:
Laughing bull terriers:
Basset hounds like Fred & Gloria:
and mini schnauzers...like me...time for the ring!
I had to stand on a table to be examined - being a small kind of dog :-)
Well there were eleven of us in the ring and in the end the judge thought I wasn't one of the best :-( so I didn't get a rosette but my peeps were so happy with how I managed in the show ring and with all the other dogs they said I was a superstar anyway :-) We went for a tea break and saw these salukis lounging in their coats:
and then it was time to get back home. I could hardly wait to tell the others about my day:
Hurry up and pack the bags in the back!
And by the end of the day I was ready for a snooze in the sun:
Catch up with you all again soon :-)
