A wicked few days, 'Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.'

We have had a ball - it certainly has to be my favuourite DCS yet! The customers were all just FANTASTIC, you stepped up to the mark, you gave your all, you were positive and light hearted and all enjoyed the game.

I feel really lucky to be part of this show and the more we do it the better it gets, this year the stable was set up, we had a caravan on site and everyone mucked in. We tasted champagne, wine, mussels and took it all in. Lots of people brought their young agility dogs in Lily, Cove, Buzz, Spice, Coast and more and also some fab puppies Darcy, Fiji, George and more. It was a great few days and we had more than enough tickets for our helpers and supporting friends too - a pleasure BIG pat on the back!

So now we have a moment to ponder, lots to plan and a ray of huge positivity! The cottage website is being updated check out if you havent seen it for a while and send us any feedabck. We are FULL completely until November I think and we are having so many enquiries for next year with firm bookings - it is really exciting. What I love is that we are having access to training a real mixture of people - it is great! If you fancy a holiday next year or over Christmas be sure to give us a shout - we would love to have you!

There have also been some fab results over the last few weeks, Matt and Bailey are on top form and he qualified for Olympia at the rather competitive big Tunbridge Wells show. Linda and Brooke have really done well, she won yet another jumping to take her to grade 4 - Linda is a pleasure and Brooke is just lovely. Graeme and the rather special Rib went to the dizzy heights of grade 6, it was fantastic to recieve his text with such great news, we hope to see more of him really soon. Kelly and Rosie had a 3rd beating some younger and fitter dogs, this is fantastic seeing as Rosie is almost 11 and Kelly has almost retired her due to the fact she is slowing up and old age is taking over :( Archie and Helene are also on fire, a 3rd last week and a win today! Great Helene, you have worked so hard! Ultimately like the people below you are having fun - keep it that way!

Have a great week,

Lauren xx
