Rain Rain


     Supporting agility dogs with specialist lifetime cover

You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too...
Denzel Washington
 

Water water everywhere and all the rings did sink. That was the scene at the 2019 Kennel Club International Festival at Rockingham Castle on the Friday and Saturday. Classes were cancelled and qualifiers rescheduled. But Agility people are nothing if not resilient and, even when the rings were underwater and caravans sinking into the ground, they still found time to smile.

An Email to God
From Dawn Gilmour on FB

Has anyone got a recent email address for God?

Iíve emailed him a few times regarding this p**sing rain but nothing seems to be happening. Iím assuming he's changed it and forgot to let me know. If you have any luck getting a hold of him, please let me know as Iím totally scunnered with it and he really should be more considerate at this time of year when he knows fine well the shows are on.

 Especially bad of him as his name spelt backwards is dog. Viv Fendick

Try a different god? Jan Wilkin 

 He is busy dealing with his house flood at the moment I'm afraid.  Helen Mary Ashenhurst

 He leaves the weather to his mum... and she's not on-line yet. She's a technophobe! And a real greenie! Jan Stubbs

Wrong department.... you need Mother Nature for weather enquiries and feedback! Helen Marsh 

Where the hell is Noah when you need him? Dawn Gilmour

Feck waiting around for Noah. Iíve organised myself for all future shows. Louise Walker

Ah now I know who nicked our boat last week! What a cheat! Jan Stubbs

Noooo, not guilty. I didn't steal anything, built my ark all by myself - no cheating here. Louise Walker 

He is on holiday... somewhere warm, dry and sunny. Kerensa Mckie 

Tell him to send it to Australia. We are desperate. Jenny Wood



KCIAF Washout

 Unfortunately due to the bad weather and unfit ground, several days of competition at the Kennel Club International Agility Festival 2019 were cancelled. Sometimes adversity leads to creativity.

KCIAF Quote of the Day...

Best KCI ever. No Es!..
Rosie Dains



Reasons to be Cheerful...
From Rosie Dains

I took the awning down.

The caravan is full of food.

The dogs are happy.

The kids are (currently) not battering seven living bells of s**t out of each other.

We have booze.

I'm not at home failing to do all the things I should be doing at home.

There's an organised day long park run
so I don't even have to have got out of bed early to run.

I have 4G.

I'm not in a tent.

There are showers and flushing toilets within a short walk.

Things could be a lot worse.
