I haven't seen these grandchildren for a whole year and how they had grown up! Little Megan, now 2 1/2 now chatters away non stop in an English accent and tears about, copying everything her older brother and sister do.
After a very busy week here they left this morning at 7.45 for the long drive home.
The photos were taken on the day they arrived.

This turned out to be a very good choice of show for me that day as Swallow (Meerwings The Swallow Tale by Pyatshaw, photo in the header) ended up by winning Reserve Best in Show. The winner was an English pointer.
Looking from the showfield across the river, hidden by the hedge, towards a hotel and the top part of Kelso abbey among the trees.
It was so hot that the dogs (and some people) had to have shade between classes. These fishing tents were very popular.
If only it were always like this!
