Houndshow Tomorrow?

Who's going?

I have Maya entered so hopefully we will make it although im still not feeling 100% from last weekend 😞 So will see how i am in the morning, its a relatively local one, and i've never been before, so i am gonna try and get there 🙂

You will love it Jess - i would say its one of my favourite shows - especially all the hound packs on parade!

Lucky for you its local - we are leaving at 3am tomorrow morning, but staying over in stafford on Saturday night.

I'm going; on my own this time as my travelling companion has the wrong type of flu!
It'll be a 5 am start for us but should be back in time for tea. Thank goodness it's Bournemouth next week and I get to leave at a civilised hour.
PS weather forecast not good for the AM.

3am?? Crazy people!! :p

It will be a nice sensible 8:30am start for me and Maya in the morning, so just like a normal work day for us so nothing too stressful.

Is it held in the big indoor hall things they have at Stafford or will it be outside? I always think it would be a lovely venue for an outdoor show, but maybe not with the bad weather forecast…!!

We won't be there i'm afraid. Good luck to you all, have a great day.

It'll be outside if it's dry. Don't hold your breath!

We are going, I want to leave by 5.15 at the latest, we are entered in the champ stakes so it will be a long day. Fingers crossed for a dry day and outside.

We are taking the caravan to the New Forest, I know I am local but we do enjoy the break!

We will be there. It’s another 3am wake up call! Looks like it could be raining; my memory of summer championship shows was that the sun always shone. Not now it doesn’t!

Steve, Sue & Poppy.

That is called 'rose-coloured spectacles'!

I certainly need spectacles trying to read the numbers in the catalogue today! I am not sure the rose tinted variety would suit me? But what about worn with the kilt! It could look quite fetching. Sue says I will be going to the shows on my own if I do!
I think even Poppy would disown me!

Steve:D

I don't think 'cringing with embarrassment' is quite the look you want for Poppy!
I've just bought an all-singing all-dancing Officejet multifunction printer which has been sitting in its (huge) box leering at me since Thursday. I must tackle it today so I may surface again in about a week.

Good luck with the printer, out of all IT equipment they are the things I hate most. I have come to blows with them in the past! My current one at home likes to get part way though a very expensive ink cartridge and then tell me that there is something wrong with it and offer no solution.

Printers are the devil's work. When I worked in college they were the single most common cause of support calls. My old one is a Brother and it uses so much ink on its cleaning cycle that the cartridges have to be replaced every few months even if you never print anything.
Hmm, new printer is still in the box…

@Borbasuk:

You really should be sorting out that printer and not on the forum!

I should be doing 101 things, cutting the grass, walking the dogs, cooking dinner and entering shows to name a few!

Hmmm, it all went suspiciously smoothly. I think it's trying to lull me into a false sense of security.

I expect it will wait patiently biding its time to till you have something urgent to print and then it will let you down. Probably one year and a day after purchasing it, so that the warranty is up!

I have a three year warranty, so it'll be three years and a day.
