Nearly A Roaring Success



After yesterday’s successes, today the wheels (or the paws) come off. We have six runs consisting of four individual runs, a pairs class and a team event. These yield three eliminations, two lots of five faults and only one clear which was in the team competition.

With the team, the first three dogs went clear but the last one didn't. So that was very nearly a roaring success.

My parents manage to catch the last of our runs and then we take them out for a meal. We decide not to go for another skewer-fest at the White Swan and instead we head into Barton under Needwood. We select the Three Horseshoes which once again we expect to be a Marston’s identikit foodie joint but it is as different as the Swan was. Their restaurant, the oddly named Bit ‘n’ Cherry, serves us up a quality meal.

After saying goodbye to my folks we head back to the show and take a couple of beers with us into the marquee where the club have assembled for a meal. Although they soon all seem to head off to their tents and caravans when we arrive. I knew I should have changed my shirt.
