reposting..Robbie at Trec 2007.. to remember him

Robbie in his lorry on the way home
Barbara Ann drove him in a Trec event today
with Dave and I as 'grooms'
and he won these, and as its a special event, the grooms got rosettes too!

what a fabulous day that was. lovely weather and good company. Robbie reached a lovely old age of 23 and was put to sleep recently, he had a couple of old age related issues which meant he was getting unhappy in his life, his owners have the best thing for him as always through his life they did the best for him always. bless.

Claire, I have another award for you to go with your rosette... only this one is just for you and your blog. You can hang it in your sidebar for all the world to see, if you wish. It's The Egel Nest Blog Award.

Come pick it up at my blog.
