Ben has (almost) always been a VERY GOOD dog. He usually comes when he is called, is very gentle with little Freddie and NEVER steals food off the kitchen worktops. In his youth he took part in not one, but two sponsored charity dog walks, and more recently has raised additional charity funds by offering himself as “Guess the weight of the dog”. But until today he was also a dog who had never won a prize of any sort. Now all that has changed …..
Here is the big fellow, who returned home today, tired but triumphant, after taking third prize in the Best Veteran Dog class at our local Animal Rescue Centre Dog Show. He won not only the rather magnificent rosette in the picture, but also a bag of rather nice looking dog treats, which he is generously (though not perhaps altogether willingly) sharing with Miss Daisy and Tilly too.
Well done Ben!
