We’re at one of the many many dog shows this year at Catton Hall today. We start off with a good run and an impressive 4th place for MD. So we just missed the top three and the trophies again. It wasn’t really his sort of course either.
Unfortunately it’s all downhill from there. A scrappy clear, a five faults and an elimination in his other three runs.
Then it’s about three hours of hanging around for Doggo’s one event. His veterans’ class is the last one of the day to run. He’s clear but just misses the rosettes.
L ventures up to Parkrun at Forest Fields, running there and back as well as doing the 5k run. She says she needs to get fit. If she says that one more time...
In the evening, we stay in with Eurovision and only the odd glass of beer/wine. Another race tomorrow but not too serious a one.
As expected there's no joy for Bonnie but if you were sat on a sofa in Azerbaijan and couldn't make your mind up on the music alone, would you vote for the 61 year old Welsh woman or 20 year old Danish totty Emmelie de Forest? Just asking... Personally I think there's something seriously wrong with our selection process.
