On Saturday 6th December 2008, Myself, Dave & Jackie Mitchell and Lesley McCourt get up at a very silly hour of the morning to go to Stansted airport for our long awaited trip to Sweden. The plan was to visit the Hund Show and of course a little sightseeing of Stockholm
Arriving in Sweden mid morning, Dave took the helm and drove us to Stockholm - that was an eyeclosing event in itself!!! But we did find our hotel, which was comfortable and warm!
As you will see from the photos Stockholm is a lovely city, I just wish the weather had been a little more forgiving as it was bitter and raining. So after an hour or two we headed back to the hotel to thaw out.
The Sunday was the Hund show - not having experienced overseas judging, it took a little while to get the hang of it! Very different to ours. I have to say that I very much enjoyed the day. The crowd certainly get more involved with the class, and in the BIS ring - well, it was almost overwhelming - spotlights, fanfares, music, ladies in traditional costume and the biggest rosettes you have ever seen!!!
Here are some of the photos of the day
