At last I have managed to get a photo of Cello -he is usually smiling at the camera or just about to flatten me as he races towards the camera!
Cello will be 12 in October but is still enjoying his trips out to the dog shows, still taking top honours and making both myself and his co-owner Terry Donovan (Mr Polo) very proud. He loves his evening walks up the setaside and is still full of mischief.
It was also lovely for his Grandaughter, Bonvivant Ysatis, also co-owned with Terry, to get her first CC at the Northern Champ show where Cello got the RDCC and BVeteran in Show!

Cacia at the chiropractor- she has been going to Christine East for almost two years now and makes me laugh- she can't wait to get in there and throws herself on the blanket ready for her treatment . She knows she will feel so much better afterwards! Still so much damage on her neck and shoulders and I cannot see that she will not have to continue with treatment for the rest of her life. Some of it is quite painful but we said today she obviously thinks it is a normal thing to do every couple of weeks.

NBSDC Championship show last weekend and Barbara and I drove to Valiants Equestrian centre near Preston.
It was nice to be going to a show again and I had entered the obedience with Ch Bonvivant Tete a Tete (Cruz) in Beginners and Novice. Despite an anticipation in retrieve-his favourite- he won both classes. Val Neff with 12 month old Bonvivant Gigi (Pandora) was 2nd in Novice and won A.
Bonvivant Gigolo(Cypher) was 2nd in JD-he is such a baby but is slowly getting the hang of showing. Pliquette Zadok *** (Cointreau)1st Limit Dog.
Ch Bonvivant Dewet (Cello) now 11.5yrs old won Veteran and took the RCC BVet and went on to Best Veteran in Show!
In bitches Bonvivant Ysatis (Chic) co-owned with Terry Donovan (Mr Polo) was 1st in OB and took the Bitch CC.
Bonvivant Habibi (Chamonix) was 3rd in OB and Best Veteran Bitch.
In Tervueren Barbaras Bonvivant Ma Cerise at Brackenmeer was 4th in VBitch.
It was lovely to meet up with a lot of old friends and thankyou to judge Pauline Koning-Stern Hanf and BIS judge Ann Brown.
