Retrievers, Labrador - week 7Updated : 08/02/2017

WE CROSSED over the old Severn Bridge in beautiful early morning sunlight. The river, sky and clouds painted multi shades of pale blue and light grey with the new bridge silhouetted in the background. So often the river is a dirty brown when we cross, but not today what a wonderful entry into Wales and what a lovely day we h...

AT MANCHESTER, Rebecca Hodge (Naiken), who had drawn an excellent entry, judged both dogs and bitches, making for a busy day.

WOULD you like some inspiration for the new year? I heard on the TV today that a 105-year-old British man has set a new world record for cycling around the velodrome for an hour and cycled 22 miles. Well if he can do that then everything we are currently dreaming of in the new year, and I have to say I have several, is achie...
