Dogfest.

We’d had lovely two weeks holiday with nanny Joan and granddaddy Mick and came back home with daddy on Friday night to welcome mummy on Saturday evening.

We all had to be home and ready before Sunday because we were going to “DogFest”.

Cocoとシルキーは金曜日の夜にジョーン婆ちゃんとミック爺ちゃんの家から戻り、私は土曜日の夕方に日本から。そしてみんなそろって日曜日の朝からウィンザーで開かれたドッグフェストへ。

It was a massive event and there were loooots of stalls, such as a few photo studios,

大きな大きな会場にはたーっくさんの出店が。 写真スタジオとか、

and yummy food shops, et cetera.

美味しそうなドッグフードのお店とか、

This shop had lots of lovely biscuits and meals.  Daddy bought two big biscuits for us and the taste of them was divine.

このお店には私が食べたいと思うような焼き菓子やお料理が売ってましたよ。もちろん全部犬用。

あまりにも美味しそうなのでCocoとシルキーにビスケット一つずつ。

Tea for doggie.

ワンコ用ティーショップ。

Oh look!  You can test your DNA.  I was interested in this very much because I would like to find out if mummy and daddy are really my mummy and daddy.

お~、DNAテストまで。

This was very popular.  Do you know what it was?  It was weight check and health advice place for doggies.  Silky and I are slim girlies so we didn’t have to be in the queue but maybe daddy could have.

このテントの前には長蛇の列。何だと思います?これはワンコの体重チェックとヘルスアドバイス。うちのガールズはスリムなので必要なかったけど、ダディは並びたかったかも。

We saw many many many doggies there.
Many little doggies marching towards…..somehwere.

とにかくたくさんの犬、犬、犬。どこかへ向かっていく小型犬たち。

They looked happy to see each other.

DSCF9031 (533x800)

このフタリは顔見知り?「あら、久し振り~。お元気?」「元気よぉ。で、あなたは?」みたいな会話が聞こえてきそうな。

Some daddies looked lost.

DSCF9038 (800x533)

広すぎて途方にくれたダディたち

Very serious looking daddies.  What is the matter?

DSCF9042 (800x533)

真剣顔で語らうダディたち。

Poor little exhausted doggie.

DSCF9043 (533x800)

可哀想に、疲れ切った小さいワンコ。

Anyway, everyone was enjoying the event.

DSCF9044 (800x533)

とにかく誰もがイベントを楽しんでまーす!

Now, our reason to be there was this.

DSCF9059 (800x533)

で、私たちがこのイベントに参加した目的はというと、アジリティディスプレー。

Yes, agility display!!!

Everyone enjoyed running the course.

DSCF9091 (800x533)

ディスプレーメンバー、みーんなコースを楽しく走りました。

DSCF9073 (800x533)

This boy who was showing beautiful ketchucp turn is only 8 years old.

DSCF9118 (800x533)

この見事なケチャックターン(だっけか?)で走り抜ける子はまだ8才。

This young boy is sometimes Silky’s classmate.  He is deaf but he has improved a lot and enjoyed running with his daddy.

DSCF9180 (800x533)

このワンちゃんは生まれつき耳が聞こえないそうです。時々シルキーのクラスメートで、みるみる上達してこの日はお父さんと楽しく走ってました。

I was not myself at my first two runs but I was woofly on fire at my last run.

DSCF9156 (800x533)

さて、Cocoの出番。最初の2ランはトロトロノロノロ。でも最後のランで目覚めたCocoはコースをビューんと飛ぶように。

Of course, I didn’t forget to look into the camera.  “Never forget you are a model” is my motto.

DSCF9159 (800x533)

それでもカメラを見たらカメラ目線。モデルであることは決して忘れません。

Silky ran very happily at first but then she became nervous Silky.

DSCF9183 (800x533)

シルキーはというと、最初のランはノリノリだったけど、徐々にナーバスシルキーに。でも最後のランでは楽しく走って、見事なスピードウィーブを披露。

However, she was very good at her last run and showed everyone her beautiful weaves.

いや~楽しい一日でした。最後にクイズを一つ。たくさんの写真が出てますが、その中にドッグショーに居るべきじゃない何かが写ってます。さて、何でしょう?

We all enjoyed the event very much.  If only we could have done The Great Dog Walk it would have been perfect.

Thank you, uncle Kevin, for inviting us.

Now, here is a quiz.
There is someone who shouldn’t be at DOG fest in one of the photos (look carefully).  Can you find who?

Love Coco
