A dog show today, only at Grantham, so it’s not a horribly early start. Just an early one. Doggo is first to compete and quickly puts in two clear rounds, they were also quite quick for him. He seems up for it today. He does five runs in all and all are clear but he doesn’t get among the rosettes.
MD is also up for it but this doesn’t manifest itself into clear rounds. He gets one clear but that was a controversial one. The judge has a quiet word with us afterwards as I nudged MD back on course with my leg a couple of times, which is actually totally against the rules but on this occasion he let me off. Not that it helped, it didn’t get us a rosette.
So we head home prize-less but it wasn’t too bad a run out for them.
Derby almost win again but concede a late penalty at Crystal Palace. 2-2.
We stay in. Indulging instead in pasta and pudding. Reading Half Marathon tomorrow.
