Then and now

How time flies! Here's a photo of Linda taken at Towcester Racecourse in 1986 when she was showing Old English Sheepdogs.

Banff, Moray & Nairn, 23 years later..........

.............still at it - just slightly less dog to brush!

Thank you to Ron for sharing the photo and for giving me a little inspiration. It's always fun to look back at older photos so how about sending in any that you may have from when you first started training/competing with your own dogs? The club has been going for a good number of years now (I'll try and find out exactly how many) and some of our more senior (nearly called them ancient!) members have been involved with dogs since almost the Dark Ages! Time to indulge in a bit of nostalgia - even though they say it's not what it used to be.

Please email me any photos you might have, with a little bit of information about date, place, people and dogs involved. If you have photos but no way of getting them onto a computer, please pass them on to me via the club and I'll return them after scanning them.

Those of you who haven't been in the dog game for quite so many years are also included, you may not be going as far back but it would be nice to see what dog you started out with or perhaps your first competition placing or win. Anything goes!
