  AGAINST THE ELEMENTS

Thankfully a lull in the weather made it possible for Mal to go and fetch our first homing of the year - mind you Chris said there would be no hanging about as bad weather is on its way up from France this afternoon and a quick trip was on the cards.

Hannah and Matthew meet their boy for the first time

This little Irish white and brindle boy had a very short racing career (hurray!!) only seven races between lst |November 2013 to 13th December 2013. He had an awkward running style which caused his withdrawal from the track (it's ok Rinkie you can walk normally now racing days over!!!!!)

So at just over 2 this little man comes to share his life with Matthew and Hannah a lovely young couple who came to us just before Christmas. As yet Rinkie (racing name Rinkie Rush) hasn't got a name yet as they thought they would wait till they saw him then decide.

Well when I went to meet Mal at the airport there was the most affectionate pooch ever all waggy tail and paws on shoulders (not to be encouraged but still lovely) just a real puppy at heart. Hopefully Matthew and Hannah will have a quiet night but he did seem a live wire.

Matthew and Hannah leaving the airport with their yet to be named pooch

This was yet another trip to Cranfield Airport made by our wonderful pilot Chris who actually had long trousers on today as oppossed to shorts (I notice these things!!). Sharon from Brambleberry RGT again did the drive to bring this little man down to the airport for which we once again thank you Sharon especially with the weather as it is at the moment.

It's always lovely to get that first home of the year especially with times being so hard for homing. This little dog has doged the racing and kennel life just because he has silly legs, bring it on all you dogs, get silly legs!!!!!
