John, & son James headed off to Paris last week to visit The Veterinary Hospital at Maison-Alfort in the big City as our beautiful Canine Roger the Lodger had a very important appointment with a Professor there.....for some X-rays and a small operation. Their Consultation Rendez-Vous was on the Wednesday,Operation Thursday and Discharge on Friday so John & James made full use of a spare day waiting, and armed with new Camera went off exploring.......
I must admit I wish I could have gone with them but someone had to hold the Fort back at Base......!
I could NEVER have walked past Louis Vitton and not gone in.........!!! (or spent a few bob!)
AND I wouldn't say no to this Rooftop appartment with Garden for the dogs!!....
But he DID bring me back this FANTASTIC piece of Advertising Memorabilia from the Famous L'oreal Empire-found in a Flea Market ......how RARE must this be?! The Vendor told him it Originated from a Department Store in the City-I have certainly never seen anything like her before or doubt I will again! Check it out on our site now-WOW! You see John DOES have an eye! (well he has two actually but there you go...)
So after all the Journey and Excitement for a few days back they came home with said Roger the Lodger with a huge plastic Cone on his head for two weeks until he has his stitches out-I will be black & Blue by then as I have lost count of how many times he has crashed into my legs with the stupid contraption.
Sunday saw us tootling off to an International Two-day Championship Dog Show at Poitiers whilst James offered to stay at home with old Lady Phoebe and Roger "Conehead" the Lodger. It was exactly one year ago that Demon Dita-then just a 6 month old puppy attended her first show there and delighted us by winning Best Puppy in Breed. She has only been lightly shown due to our work commitments but she has steadily been consistently successful-this would be her first Intermediate class now she is 18 months....and guess what?-SHE WON IT!!
Not only did she win but was awarded the RCACS & RCACIB-Reserve Best of Breed!!! Not to be outdone-little Baby Esto (well maybe not so little at 37 kgs @ 6mths old) won BEST PUPPY too!!!
Quite a Haul of Trophies & Awards wouldn't you say???!!!!
So now we are getting down to the Nitty-Gritty and getting listing with plenty of new delights this week-quite a lot of catching up to do....! We have a few bright and sunny days forecast so we will be clicking away with the cameras & bringing you more ideas to mull over...until then Bonsoir!
