IS NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS!!!!
never has there been a truer word spoken!! We could see that they
were worried at the start of 2006 - as Mopps and Kennel Man considered
that us Cranstal 'Qu's were all 'still quite young for any major
honours this year'. However we seem to have excelled ourselves!
Mopps talking to her friend Madelaine at the start of the summer
(discussing dogs and dog showing - of course!). 'Well, we have never
'done a double' or had a Group placing at a Championship Show - and
I think it highly unlikely that we ever will' says Mopps! By the
end of July - Faris and his litter sister Hettie had got DCC & BCC
at Birmingham and then Faris gets Group 4 at Leeds - becoming a Champion
along the way. (Heard Mopps telling Madelaine a short while ago 'that
they had never won the Lottery either!' Unfortunately for all the
Cranstal's standard of living - Madelaine's magic does not seem to
have worked with this one to date!!).
was much rejoicing about both of those Ch. Show events I can tell
you. I was a bit miffed actually - as I felt that it almost overshadowed
my very important CC at Blackpool!!
GOES ON....................but not always.
CATKIN RULES O.K.!!
has left us - and gone somewhere that only she knows about. She had
been very quiet - and spent a lot of time sleeping behind the television
and under the book-case for a week or two (we all thought that the
stress of living with Lily had finally got to her) but it turned
out to be a lot more serious than that. Then she came back from the
vets' one evening asleep in her basket - and we were all taken out
to say 'Goodbye'. Mopps and Kennel Man were very sad so we all knew
that this really was the last time that we would see Catkin.
