What do they say - "have wheels will travel", well we did a road trip down to Invercargill (right down the bottom on the South Island - about 8 hours travelling). What a wonderful weekend

CH Winterlea Krystal Dawn - BCC
Well things were still happening back here at Riverstone with the two rat bag twins back in the ring after their long break - it was NOT a grand entrance!!!!! Those two puppies entered the ring at our own local shows and on the first day were disowned by me - I don't know which one bounced the highest or had the best wave to the crowd while they should have been running nicely around the ring!!!!!! To say they enjoyed themselves and gave their handlers a run for their money was an understatement :o)
BUT the next day Luka went into the ring (with me) and took the RDCC, RBOB and Puppy Gundog, from that point of he has become a real mummies boy.
Mieka and Kaatje shared the BCC over the weekend - and I realised evil puppy 1 and evil puppy 2 needed some lead work!!!
Well after hitting the ground running and picking up close to half of his Australian title Jarno decided that the Queensland heat wasn't really to his liking (unless swimming) and it was so much nicer inside with the air conditioning, and forgetting where he left his coat he was now enjoying a relaxing time being loved by Marilynn.
Jarno's first weekend showing in Brisbane and 26 points towards his title, the little Riverstone country boy is flying our flag high and proud!!!!!

Well at 7.00am on Monday 1 June Jarno flew out to Brisbane to live with Marilynn Morphet and family. After saying goodbye to Jarno I sat down the end of the runway waiting for his plane to take off - it was dark and about four planes taking off one after another so I waved and cried for them all

Well it's now 2009 and we have had a slow start. The two new kids, Ava and Luka, are typical Baby Puppies and bounce around the ring. I'm sure it's their mission to trip me up, but they are happy and not scared of anything.
