IS NO BUSINESS LIKE ‘NO SHOW’ BUSINESS!!!!
there is very little to report on the show scene this time - as we
have had a virtually complete break over the last six months. However
in preparation for the start of the 2006 Championship Show season Mopps
took me to Ringcraft the other night - where I showed her exactly how
much I had forgotten during the last six months. She is now in a complete
panic and I am doing ringcraft every morning, of every single day in
the week, apart from Sundays. I, unfortunately, seem to have radically
overdone the 'wake up call' on show ring procedures!!
most definitely NOT O.K. actually!! But we salukis were not consulted
in the first place. And it all started so innocuously.......... Mopps
was going to get a lily. Well we all know that she likes orchids and
plants so this did not cause the Cranstal Clan any major concerns.
Even her departure off Island to collect the lily - whilst seeming
to be a bit of an overkill for a plant - did not ring any alarm bells
with us salukis. It most certainly should have done!
the course of Mopps absence in deepest East Sussex we heard Kennel
Man say to one of his mates that 'it was getting increasingly difficult
to keep tabs on Mopps who - for someone who hated travelling - seemed
to be vanishing off Island on an increasingly regular basis'. He was
also heard muttering (whilst preparing food for 6 salukis and one cat
twice daily) that when he had said 'Well, if you really want it - you
will have to go and collect it yourself' he had not expected her to
do just that! DO JUST WHAT??? we salukis had wanted to shriek!!! As
well we might!!
