Despite the rain and the cancellation of Lowther's last day, Chris and I had a rather eventful time... and I don't just mean the parties.
This is Whisper. She's 15 weeks old and my next trial hope! Her dad Ben just came 16th in the English National which means that he is the reserve for the English Trial Team in the International. Her mother, for those of you who happen to be sheepdog nuts, is litter sister to Arthur Temple's Lassie II. She hasn't been out trialling yet.
Whisper is simply the cuddliest pup I've ever met. She loves being right under your feet or on your knee all the time. However, she also showed a keen interest in sheep today when I took her to watch her dad in a local trial. He did very well and she was captivated by the white woolly things running past.
Fox so far does not share Chris and my enthusiasm for this funny little fluffy thing which has suddenly appeared, but he'll come round... I hope!
Oh, and Chris and I got engaged!
