Mummy and Daddy help to organise a Charity Dog Show, it is to raise funds for our friends' local Church. I went with them and I went into the showring with Liam who is the nephew of mummys friend Kath. We were in the childrens handling class. We came fourth and it was nice for me to be back in the showring as I have been retired for a while. I really enjoyed myself as all my favourite people were there, Uncle Mick was judging and Grandad and Grandma came to watch. We all had a lovely day and raised lots of money for the Church. When we came home, we were all really tired and I took myself to bed after my tea-time!
I am really pleased that my grandson George qualified for next years Crufts today. Cherry-pie qualified again and mummy was pleased. Daddy said that lots of people commented on George's colour because he is such a dark sable. We think he is gorgeous hence his name Yankeetank Gorgeous George!
George has had all his eye tests done now, so mummy said he can be put to stud soon. We will be selective of his "girlfriends" due to colour.
I wasnt very happy because they went to the Dog Show without me and it was a long day, Uncle Mick and Aunty Carol came over a couple of times to check we were ok. Mummy had to buy me a new toy on Monday to cheer me up, I am "speaking" to them again now!
It has been a worrying time. Firstly mummy found a lump on Roxy's side (my daughter). She had to have a biopsy at the Vets - luckily it turned out to be just a lipoma, nothing to worry about.
Then Jamie (my nephew), has had to have one of his eyes removed, he went completely blind and it was looking quite nasty. At the same time, mummy found a small growth in his neck, so that was removed at the same time. He looked awful when he came back from the Vets but has made a full recovery and is now bouncing around like a young dog again (he's 8). I have sat and "washed" them both I am sure it made them feel better!

Today is my grandchildren's birthday. George and Cherry are 2 today. (As are their 3 sisters and 1 brother). Mummy has made a cake so we will be having a piece after tea. I am very proud of them and love them so much.
