Dear Sheila

Just a little note to say thank you for the lovely day I had on Friday. I started the day at 7 am (despite staying in bed 'til the last moment, like I do every day - humans can't take a hint) and Bilbo and I (he's a spinone, not a ridgeback, but I don't mind) took Carol for a walk.

Fortunately after breakfast I could go back to bed for a couple of hours. I did keep one eye on David as he was putting beds and picnic things into his car (he's not normally here during the morning so I thought something was going on).

I though maybe we were going to the seaside as David said we were going to Crufts, which didn't sound like Cornwall, but could still have been seaside. And when Carol came home we all got into the car, except Bilbo who had to stay and look after our territory. It wouldn't do to let the cats think they could walk past our house without being barked at!

But if Bilbo wasn't coming, I was a bit worried we were going to the vets, so it was a brilliant surprise when we eventually stopped and I saw all the dogs and people milling around. Apparently Crufts is where all us dogs go to show off our people and the really good people get given rosettes and cups and things.

Aren't there a lot of different size and shaped dogs? I had no idea there were so many different dogs I could have been playing with! When we got to our "stand" there was Sue and a handsome dog who fancied me - of course!
It was good to see Sue from my classes after all the strange people we'd walked past. Lots of people came to my stand and I was stroked and patted and David said lots of nice things about me and ridgebacks and about "owning us" (humans they just don't get it do they?)

Some of the time we had the "stand" all to ourselves so I could show off David without anybody else getting a look in. I think he should have won a rosette, though most of the people seemed to want to pet me.

I have to admit to being a little bit worried when we first got to Crufts, but once I got used to all the fuss I had a great time.
But I was so tired at the end of the day that I slept in the car and when we got home I just had my dinner and went straight to bed and slept all night.

I'm a little disappointed that David didn't win anything but he seems to be taking it very well and has convinced himself that we really went so he could show ME off! Aren't humans funny?

So I would just like to say, thank you Sheila, for thinking of me and I would be more than happy to take David again next year if you want me to :-)

Lots of love and wags,
