YOU MIGHT WELL WONDER WHAT I HAVE BEEN ‘OBSERVING’ THAT HAS DELAYED MY SPRING UPDATE TO SUCH AN EXTENT.
WELL - HERE IT IS!

During the first couple of minutes of its very first class at its very first show!
Kennelman’s head is bowed in silent prayer - of that I am 100% certain!!

THERE IS NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS!

Well, I thought that this section was scheduled to become defunct once I had retired - as I just could not see them continuing to spend all that money on taking Flash to shows as he was a Champion already. It just goes to show that one should never assume anything as far as the Cranstal Two Legs are concerned!!

Off the four of them went to Hound Association of Scotland last weekend. ‘Four????’ do I hear you say? Yes, there is an additional player once more in the Cranstal Show Team. The established participants Kennelman (professional Cranstal handler), Mopps (recently appointed Logistics Manager - as she has permanently handed in her show leads!) plus the handsome Flash (our current star). However you can now add in to this mix a Swedish sproglet that had somehow managed to smuggle herself onto an SAS flight which happened to land just as Kennelman was passing Manchester Airport on 21st January this year! Being a kind soul he offered to give her a home to save her being deported. That must be the story. As you can take it from me no-one in their right mind would have deliberately introduced Noor into a peaceful household ‘like wot we used to have’!
