• Cant decide where to put this topic !!!

    My hubby and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary yesterday, 1st Dec… He surprised me last Monday saying we were going out for dinner... I say surprised, cos we usually dont celebrate, and we are lucky to remember to buy a card, for each other !!!

    So off we go, in our 'finery's' to the Casino for a superb meal... BUT, after the most beautiful entree I have ever tasted, out came a present :)... Mmmm............................. this I wasnt expecting. Long story short, the bugger has been slowly paying off an O/S holiday for the 4 of us :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: I couldnt believe it, I was stunned and completely lost for words... We are going to England, Scotland, Ireland, France and finally Dubai, all up between 6-7 weeks :D...

    The very first port of call is to CRUFTS... We are going every day, including the BIS judging... I have the Crufts tickets here already... I cant believe he has managed to organise all this over the last 18 months, without me knowing !!! I know EVERYTHING that goes on in this household, (clearly not !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). I NEVER suspected a thing, the naughty darling !!!

    So what I want to know is.........................................Who's going, and how do I find you ?????????????????????????????????? Im happy to wear a 'saba' badge, but only if you all wear your B.F. name badge as well !!! I am completely beyond excited, I can tell you...

    The kids dont know,yet, it will be their Xmas pressie πŸ˜‰ ;)... I so wanted to tell them last night, but I cant wait to see their faces on Christmas morning !!!

  • WOW, just wow!

  • Ohhhh, good hubby, I think he's a keeper! Congratulations!

  • OMG indeed. I hope my Hubby does something amazing for our big anniversaries!!!

    We'll be at Crufts. We're on the Saturday, Hall 5, ring 32. We are first in the ring at 9am (I think). Please be sure to come and talk to the Benkura gang πŸ™‚

    Also, when you come to Scotland, please give us a shout. I'm sure you'll be having B withdrawls by then. πŸ˜ƒ

  • What a lovely surprise, he is a keeper for sure πŸ˜ƒ

    On basenji day your best bet would be to buy a catalogue so you can find us all at the benches with our dogs, and you will also be able to spot everyone in the ring that way πŸ™‚

  • Lucky girl! You married good.

  • Excellent pressie…nice husband! Your daughters will be thrilled.

  • First Basenji's

    That is a post worthy of all those exclamation marks.
    Have fun on the trip!

  • Congratulations - what a loving husband.

    I think the badge is a very good idea. I'll be there as I'm sure that most of the UK forum members will be, and it'll be great to have a meet up.

    I'm usually there every day as well and hopefully will have a ticket for BIS ring,
    so we can meet up there as well.

  • Have fun on your trip what a great life and husband.

  • Wow! That is awesome! Enjoy πŸ™‚

  • Thanks everyone, Im still floating around on that place called Cloud Nine !!!!!!!

    Benkura when we meet up at Crufts, do you ant my hubby to have a quiet chat to yours about how he did it all πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ :D… I might be taking you up on the offer to have B cuddles in Scotland :), cos I will REALLY miss the dogs. I cant for the life of me even consider what it will be like having 6-7 weeks without the dogs !!! Trying to work out where they will all go, at the moment i.e. boarding kennels, have someone stay in the house with them etc, etc... At this stage Saba, (problem lad), will go to Sydney, hopefully 2 ACD's will go back to the breeder, if possible, but that till leaves 6 dogs here...

    Maya thanks for the tip, for some odd reason I thought the dogs weren't benched, no idea where the heck I got that stupid idea, so will be getting the catalogue, for sure...

    Patty look forward to catching up to. It will be FANTASTIC πŸ™‚ πŸ˜ƒ πŸ™‚ :D...

    My hubby is definately a keeper, no doubt about that πŸ™‚ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wow fantastic surprise. We will also be at Crufts, only on the hound day though, it would be lovely to meet up with you, as Patty says we will probably all be there!

  • WOW!!! That is a BIG GREAT present!!!

  • That is a spectacular present - well done!
    We will be there for both working and Hound day. Agree best idea is to get a catalogue so you know who is who - come over and say hello.


  • Houston

    Wow, huge congrats, what and amazing husband. I am so excited for you..have a ball, take lots of pictures and tell us all about it. When do you leave?

  • Congratulations to you and your hubby on your 20 years of marriage.
    What a wonderful pressie.
    We may go to Crufts on the hound day, not to show, just to spectate.

  • Oooh, probably should have added, we will be there on toy day as well with a pug and chihuahua, do feel free to come and cheer us on, we will need the support im sure lol!
