GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Hey guys...it's me...
SWEET HOOLIGAN TOBY!
It was another beautiful, sunny day and another opportunity to go and meet up with my Golden buddies today. This time it was the
'Gundog Open Show'
at Goldfields Kennel Club in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I am sure none of you will mind if I dedicate today's post to my Golden buddies. I know there are other 'gundog' breeds, but today is mainly about us Golden Retrievers.
When we arrived there, Maxmom handed me over to my new hero -
- who was my handler today.
(Thank you Donovan, for getting me into line!)
So Maxmom handed me over and then she went off to take photographs of some of the beautiful pooches at the show.
She said I can show you what some of my buddies look like.
So, get all your treats together and some nice drinkies and enjoy my own special little 'show':
Firstly, the "BEST IN OUR BREED" for today:
Margaret McAra with her beautiful
(Kelly is a 9yr old veteran Golden and has been a champion for many years)
Congratulations to Kelly and Margaret!
There were some beautiful Springer Spaniels (below)...
There were also household buddies who had to come along for the ride (below)...
they loved being in their crate together.
HEIDI AND SARA...
There were Pointers...who really run like the wind!
...and there were a whole lot of other gundogs.
Of course, Maxmom and I were mainly interested in my breed.
THE GOLDEN RETRIEVERS...
And finally, here's me (below):
"SWEET HOOLIGAN TOBY"
with my hero...
"Thank you, Grandpa for showing me off!
I luvs you!"
I luvs you!"
I want to congratulate ALL the doggies who were at the show today.
Maxmom says that you should ALL win top honours -
simply for being wonderful and beautiful doggies!
Thank you to ZENA and ALAN at
RUFFITWOOD GOLDEN RETRIEVERS
for your continuous support and encouragement!
Sending lotsalicks to you all,
