Vogue was rather over exuberant and ultra lively today with playmate Jaq as part of the show team too, she decided to cavort around and jump about and hardly kept her four feet on the ground or in order! She decided today she was not going to take showing seriously and just enjoy herself and have fun …. which she did!!!

Day at Crufts this year was on the Thursday – an awkward day for us as Bart
had to work on both the Wednesday & Friday and weekend ….
Not wanting to miss it we decided the only way to do it was to travel
before and after the show catching the midnight ferries each way and driving
through the night !! … madness ...tiring … but fun!!
It was great to catch up with so many friends again.
Sh Ch / Dutch / German/ VDH/ Lux / Swe
Champion Martha of the Hellacious Acres &
International & UK Sh Ch / Dutch / German/ VDH Champion Barnum of the
