Chertsey show 2016

We went to our summer tradition “Chertsey show” on Saturday.  We’ve been to the show every year since 2013, haven’t we, daddy?
Some people might remember that I won the prettiest bitch at the show in 2009, when I was a little chubby young girl.  If you are interested in my debut video click here, please.

Anyway, we got up nice and early and we were all ready for the day.  It was lovely sunny day so mummy and daddy made this little cozy den for Silky and me.  Sometimes it was hot outside but our little den was dim and cool.

2013年からの毎年の夏の恒例行事、Chertseyショーに行ってきました。13年の前は2009年、まだCocoが若くて小太りの頃には一番可愛い女の子部門で優勝したことも。そのビデオはHereをクリックしてもらえるとみられます。で、当日は快晴。ほとんどの人はキャンピンクがーや車に取り付けられるテント持参での来場。うちにはそういったものが無いけど出来るだけ快適にということで、カーテン付けたりして車内を薄暗く、そして涼しく。

There were a lot of different competitions.

The ring next to agility was for dog show.

そしてカカシまで。皆さん、この日の為に一年頑張るのでしょうか。

The main event for us was, of course, agility show.
Grass was nicely cut and everything was perfectly organized.

私たちの目的はもちろんアジ。オーガナイザーの方たちの努力で芝はキレイに刈られてすべてが万全に整ってました。

Two big tents at agility venue are uncle Kevin’s.  He said I could borrow them so why don’t I throw my 10th birthday party next year, daddy?

テント内では色々な事務作業。ちなみにこの大きなテントと向こうに見えるテントはお友達のケビンさんのもの。パーティー等をしたいときにはいつでも貸してくれるそうです。って、そんな予定ないわ・・・。

Now, our agility runs were ……….fun.
The first one was jumping.  Mummy hadn’t done any agility training since April or May because of her rib problem but she happily ran with Silky.

As for me, I started fast and then somehow I slowed down.  Daddy clapped his hands many times to encourage me but I couldn’t run fast.  I wonder why?  Mummy and daddy thought that I needed some change.

So!
I ran Steeplechase with mummy,

で、肝心のアジはというと、最初のジャンプはシルキーもCocoもスロ~。シルキーはいつものことだけどCocoまで。そこで二種目目は私とCoco、ダディとシルキーに組替えして、Cocoチームはクリアーラウンドでおリボンもらいましたっ!

and woofy!  We got a clear round.  My time was 27 seconds and something.  It wasn’t fast enough but Silky’s was……well, it’s a secret because Silky doesn’t know and I don’t want her to find out.

スモールとミディが一緒の枠だったのでとてもじゃないけど入賞無理。タイムは27秒台でした。でも私はずーっと休んでたし、悪くないかなと。それにシルキーなんて倍近く掛かってたし (^^;)

After I ran with mummy I fell asleep.  I didn’t know that mummy and daddy were peeping.  I was really asleep.  I was charging for my last run “Agility with daddy” to win.

Cocoちゃん、なんだか一気に疲れたのか、その後車内で爆睡。ダディと二人で会場をウロウロ見学して戻ったらオメメパッチリでお目覚め。パワーナップか?

I ran Steeplechase with mummy so Silky ran with daddy.
Daddy used to be shy in the ring so when “Nervous Silky” didn’t run properly daddy became “Disappointed daddy”and then “Nervous Silky” got even more nervous and their agility relationship fell apart.
However, in these couple of years, daddy got over his shy feeling and Silky, at least, doesn’t run away from the ring anymore.  Also, while mummy couldn’t run, daddy and Silky grew their agility bond woofly a lot.  Now, she is much happier when she runs with daddy.

シルキーはというと、ダディとでもやっぱりトロトロだったけど、私が肋骨骨折で走れない間にボンディングしたのか、私とよりも嬉しそう。数年前は恥ずかしがり屋のダディはシルキーのトロトロ走り、逃走が耐えられずに私と交代。でももうさすがに恥ずかしさは乗り越え、シルキーも逃走はしなくなったから、すこしだけ以前にもどしてダディとシルキーペアでのランを増やしていこうということになりました。来年、勝ちのロゼットを取って、シルキー!

We looked back our past videos of Chertsey show and found out that Silky hadn’t change a lot.  Why?
We only got one clear round rosette this year.  If Silky can run happily she can win, can’t she, daddy?  You can watch those videos 2013 and 2014 if you have a moment.  We don’t have any video in 2015 because I got a bit of accident and didn’t run.

Today, in the park, we met our old agility mate.  His mummy said that Silky should be better because she was one of her breeder mummy’s.
Hmmm….she is 5  years old.  How can she change?
When I started proper agility at Rosie’s I was 5 years old, so mummy and I believe that Silky can still change.  Let’s get winner’s rosettes at Chertsey show 2017, daddy!

Here is the video of our run at the show.

  1. I wish I lived near you girls so I could attend your shows. It looks like you had a very busy day and got a good night’s sleep that night!

      Hello Donna and Shelly,
      It would be very nice if we live near. We could be good friends with Shelly.

      We didn’t bake a cake because daddy had a feast yesterday. Instead, we baked his favourite pizza! Love Coco and Silky
