is such a blast when you are young, gifted and black!!!!
IS NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS!!!!
not for Mr. Faris there isnt!! He has been appointed 'designated
companion in the slammer' with Shala for the forseeable future -
and Tiisi is my new travelling companion. Not so sure that she is
any more enthusiastic about the change in arrangements than Faris
is (Tiisi has never liked leaving the Island since her departure
at 9 weeks and her subsequent return to it at seven months of age
- but being sensitive little souls her failure in this respect has
never been a subject for discussion!!). Anyway it has been decreed
by several of Mopps dog showing friends that 'Tiisi is looking stunning
and is being wasted' so her fledgling UK show career is being resurrected
for the forseeable future. I think that I must be looking more stunning
though - as I have beaten her on both occasions that we have been
competing. Well, I am not having some interloper just walking all
over me - so I have quickly clocked up a BOB and a RCC just to remind
Tiisi what competition is all about!
the Star? Well, MOI of course!! It was a lovely Saturday evening,
Mopps and Kennel man were happily partaking of a quite delicious
evening meal, the sun was slowly sinking in a glowing sky, a whole
flock of sparrows were settling in the trees in the garden (noisy
little buggers that they are) and us salukis were mooching around
between the kitchen, the patio and our dog room waiting for one of
the younger birds to make a mistake and land somewhere within reach.
In other words all was well with the world in the Isle of Man and
especially in the Cranstal household.
Well, I soon put that to rights! They 'think' (and who am I to enlighten
them) that I must have chased a small fledgling behind the decorative
breeze blocks that surround the oil tank and in my efforts to dislodge
the aforesaid baby bird I managed to get one of my front paws completely
and immovably wedged between the decorative breeze
