    David, Thomas and I had a great time at the CLA Game Fair on Saturday, well worth the money as there is so much to see.

    I was sorry to miss the Place Boarding demonstration but there is only so much dog stuff you can drag a 14 year boy to when all he wanted to do was get to the Fishing lake and demonstrations ::) never mind.

    We did however see the Clumber Spaniel demonstration which was a great sight, they really are beautiful, well mannered and sociable dogs :) After the demonstration we tracked down Heidrun and introduced ourselves and to our surprise she didn't try to make a run for it ;D we made all our apologies for being right royal pains in the backside with our endless questions on training Charlie, but also thanked her for all her help too :)

    I hope if you went you had a great time too :) xxx

    How lovely you and Heidrun got to meet.

    I had a lovely time on Friday and managed too meet up with Pippa. It's so lovely to meet people in person. I enjoyed the demos I saw and Mr Halsted jr gave a very impressive labrador demo while I was there.

    The Clumbers were wonderful and I was completely covered in white hairs after plenty of cuddles ;D

    That's a great idea Helen. If I knew in advance that others were going, I'd leave Poppy with Mum in Sussex and make the trip to see everyone! It sounds such fun.

    Definitely worth a thought.......
    I am sure Sophie would be up for it, but would need to drag Lilly along too as she wouldn't be safe at home with the boys ::) ::) ::)

    Had a wonderful time at the CLA, but I'm only just starting to recover. :) Sadly Ziggy has tweaked something in his back and is on restricted exercise so he couldn't take part in the gundog display, but he had a great time greeting and meeting visitors at the Working Clumber Spaniel Society stand. ;D I took loads of photos, some can be seen on the society's Facebook page.
    Helen, thank you for finding me and stopping for a chat. It was lovely to meet you, David and Thomas! :D

    It was lovely to meet you and Ziggy too Heidrun. I really hope Ziggy is recovering, I was so looking forward to seeing the lovely young man in action but you need him fit and well for the shooting season. xxx

    I forgot to mention Thomas was so interested in meeting the Clumbers as they are a rare breed and he thought they were beautiful, he also enjoyed you sharing your knowledge with him and explaining the breed but now he would like one, somehow I don't think so ;D x
