the amazingly proud looking and much loved pooch in the featured image is 15 years old.
He is a Paterdale Jack Russel Cross and had just won honours at a fun Dog Show event-
“Best Veteran”! this made him eligible to enter a final competition “Best overall Dog “.
We are not in favour of putting animals under pressure to
win competitions it depends on the circumstances ,
but this was a respectful fun, family event apparently.
The competition was fierce for the Honours many elegant sprightly pedigrees, mighty
Ridge-Backs etc, beauties cute ones, gorgeous ones,
elderly ones many kinds, all beautiful in their own way.
This little chap won the lot , he swept the board tee hee!
The little dog seems to have a big smile on his face just as he does when he receives
energy work at his request when I occasionally meet him and his family.
We were not sure if he would make last winter,what a glorious summer he is having
he is so loved and wants to be with his family as long as possible,
he really is a wonderful, loyal little dog, blessed with a loving and kind human family.
He is honoured always.. for being just who he is.
