Show weekend and rest days

On Thursday, Zephy, Ben and I travelled down to Leeds for the championship show. Echo went to Ben’s parents house for the night/day for a bit of R&R.

We had a good day at the show with Zephy placing 3rd in both of his classes (Junior and Graduate), which means we have once again qualified for Crufts. I’m not sure why I am so keen to go back considering how I feel about the place/people/treatment of some of the dogs. I can’t decide if it’s just my competitive side taking over or what. Anyway, we are heading back.


He behaved so well considering two border terriers went for him.He barely reacted to them with only a little growl and nothing more.  I still get infuriated by the double standard people with small dogs have. It’s ok for them to growl and snarl and bite but if Zeph does it I get all the tutting of the day and the eye rolling etc. Really bothers me.

The rest and some spoiling Echo received on his little break has done him the world of good. His swelling has gone down dramatically and the scar looks as if it’s healing well. I think he missed his little brother though:


We are back to the Vet on wednesday to get stitches out so hopefully that’s the end of it. Will need to keep an eye on him but hopefully it doesn’t come back again whatever it was!

All in all, it has been a very tiring few weeks. I am exhausted!

  1. Congratulations on getting through to Crufts & I have to agree with your sentiment about that particular show …as well as the double standards of small dog syndrome, best wishes for Echo at the vets 🙂

  2. Thank you. Echo’started shoulder is looking very raw at the moment. Might need to put socks on him. Hopefully it all heals quickly and he can get back to running about outside! We are all having a lazy morning today since I’m back shift. A chance to relax in the morning 🙂 I’ll stick a post up after the vet on Wednesday. Xx
