Crufts 2008



Gran'ma had cakes made for us all to share. Johanna had Danish flag cakes & we also had ESSC Tristar cakes - they all got eaten before i could take a pic!



Chi meets Wallace outside crufts



The ESSC team set up. We looked gr8 in our specially designed T shirts, very smart. Hopefully Lian will post out team runs so check out The Knights Shelties blog. We all had a gr8 day with all dogs performing brilliantly in the conditions.

Below the highlight of our day - winning the Crufts Singles. Chi was awesome, i couldn',t have asked for more and get tear pricked eyes every time i think about it! He had the fastest itme of ALL the dogs competing over the saem course with a time of 32.6 seconds! If he continues to perform like this we will have a fantastic season so fingers crossed.



It was such a buzz winning & knowing that so many people will be sharing our success, especially my Mum & Dad, Lesley Olden who we train with, friends who were present or supporting from home and ofcourse Gran'ma who had to stay home to look after sister Zen who is about to drop puppies.

Dear Lisa,
If you haven't already, take Chi and go look in a mirror and tell yourself "We did it!" "We won!" And keep saying it until it really really registers. And then place that feeling firmly in your memory.
Treasure this! Reward yourself! Celebrate!

Best wishes,
Nanna in Denmark
P.S. Look forward to seeing your Haka dance sometime :-)

Well done Lisa and Chi - you had a fab crufts. What a come back from a dog that was so poorly. You worked really hard. Chi is a real inspiration and as I am about to start the theory of my diploma course, he is my inspiration to work hard to qualify.

Congratulations
Sara Steve and the mob especially Cabbage
