Show Champion Canigou Story Time at Withiflor JW
20.10.2009 - 03.08.2020

Rest my beautiful Blondie
for your Story has been told
and your Time has come

From the making of you
and the nurturing;
to the schooling and competing

The travelling in hope
and anticipation
your quality and true type won through

Champion and Mother of Champions
you played your part
and fulfilled our every dream

Your boundless enthusiasm
and will to please
made you the very best of everything.


My thanks to everyone who thought so highly of Blondie
and took us on a fantastic journey - it has been a blast...



2020 "Lockdown" 

...all very frustrating, with new puppies at home, very cheap fuel and nowhere to go !!...

we can be thankful for the glorious Spring weather and time - time to do all those things we have on our List and promised to do sometime - no excuses !
garden pristine, house decorated and dogs well groomed.... well, almost !
