Well today Arthur, Jacob and I are off to The Midland English Springer Spaniel Society Champ Show, a bit chilly at 7am, but hopefully we will warm up once we are there,I had a lovely day, scrummie yummie food, a great atmosphere with good company, it was brill to catch up with everyone,  our judge today is "Mr Frank Kane" and a lovely entryof 125 dogs. Arthur was is in Open Dog and was placed 4th behind three lovely Show Champions, who all deserved their placings. A huge thankyou to Jane who always puts me right on my failings as a groomer, and gives Arthur that finishing touch, you are a star. As always Arthur made me proud, he gave his all, and I just love him to bits. I always come home with a smile on my face, thankyou for a great time, and also the comments about Arthur, must say into my pj's early tonight and feet up for a rest, if thats possible with Ralph who is our latest addition and is just 12 weeks old going on 4!!!!!!!!!!
