Looking back at Summer

After my very waterey post last month I thought this month I would focus on how I spent the odd day of sun we had this month – yes of course you remember our summer it was that long period of rain broken by a day or two of sun……

Anyway, Dad took me and the whole family to a family fun dog show in our local village! It was great to see so many doggies all in one space and I did have a lot of fun saying hello to various new furiends. We were having a lovely time, and I was busy enjoying checking up on peemail when the day took a serious turn!
Clearly dad recognised me for the handsome specimen of a dog that I am and entered me into a class. I was very nervous as I stood there being judged, and I tried my best to stand really still and show the judge my best side, well what can I say the judge clearly had great taste as he awarded the first prize – although I was slightly less impressed to see that they were handing out Wagg dog food rather than my Harringtons!

Looking good don't you think?!

Looking good don’t you think?!

In fact they even had a big banner promoting this food! Don’t I look great stood in front of it?! Think they may take me on as the face of their food as well? I am sure I would help them sell more – anyway I digress!

Well clearly impressed with my amazing show skills dad decided to see if it ran in the family and entered Walt into his class. Well would you believe he won it too? And ok he was at a slight advantage being the only one in his class but still well done Walt – I am teaching you well!

It was a really lovely day, and it was so nice to see that they had a high class of judge for the show, with such good taste, and no my opinion isn’t even slightly jaded by the fact that I was named as reserved champ overall!!!

Celebratory treats for me I think!!

  1. Peemail!!!! BAHAHAH that made me laugh and it is so true! I will have to try this famous WAGG food very soon Basil, as Kirby is salivating over the little dog bones on your background already. Kirby also just had a trip where he met a bunch of dogs too!

  2. Wow Basil…congrats on your win, and Walt’s! That’s great that your family thought to enter you and show off your good looks. I’m sure you can sell lots of dog food with your face, but be careful, wouldn’t want to be helping your competition, right? 🙂

  3. Dear Basil~
    Thank you so much for following my blog. When I saw yours, I had to reciprocate. I’ve fixed my scribe’s computer (I think this will work, but I’m not very techno-savvy) so that your blog comes up every one of my work days here at the bookshop precisely at noon. Elizabeth often gets busy with work and forgets that it’s time for lunch. This will remind her that it’s cookie time for sure!
    Congratulations on your win. I get run out of dog shows because they don’t recognise my breed yet, so I don’t know if I could ever do as well as you or not! I think your ears are lovely, much nicer than mine, so probably not. I might win if the contest is for biggest dog, though…

  4. Hiya Basil! Whee are finally back after Mummy being sick for a long while. She is nearly recovered so whee just had to say hello and let you know whee are back.
    By a strange coincidence Mummy saw Harrington guinea pig food when she was browsing the pet food in one of our local shops. Whee may be tempted to try it as Mummy agrees our current food is a bit boring and has been looking for something new! Would you recommend it? (obviously you don’t eat it but what do you think of the nutritional values)

I'd love to hear from....what do you think?
