The Show Season

May is a busy time of the month as we are getting ready for the local and not so local shows.

Boxes that have been laying in the attics since last years show seasons now have to be dragged out and gone through carefully to see what we need to keep and what can be thrown away - why did we keep some of those things? The problem is which shows to go to, I would love to do them all but unfortunately time, or lack of it is also a problem. But now we have three which always seem to work for us.

Holker Flower festival was the first one that I ever attended many years ago and now we are regulars and have our usual spot next to the Sticky toffee Company - far too tempting! Penrith show is always a great success and we are lucky enough to have our marquee in a prime location.

Westmorland show despite the horrendous weather was very good, in between hanging on to the marquee poles and pegs and battling with the rain that dripped down on to everything including our necks we managed to stay smiling and at the end of the day a large Pimms was brought across to us by some very sympathetic person who had taken pity on the two drowned rats!

I love the show season. As all of my clients both past and present come to visit me on the stand and it’s a great time to catch-up with old friends and their owners .Usually the dogs hear and see me first with the owner catch up later with them.

Prayers are always said 2 to 3 weeks before hand as we need – dry ground, the sun to shine and conversation to flow.
