We really enjoyed RottieFest 2013 and I know the 4 families that have had pups from us that came did also, I think 2014 will be even better and if we are welcome we will be returning, and this time with even more of the Vancannon family, it was a great day, very relaxed and everyone got along well.

Home now after a lovely day at Rottiefest, think I may have overdone it tho, was a long difficult drive home. But think my girls enjoyed getting all muddy and they both did me proud in the ring. Xx.

I had a great time at my first Rottiefest, even with the mud. It was fun to meet so many friends from FB and to make new ones.  Will definitely be entering the best 5 legs class next year!!! lol!  Bit of excitement on the way home, a blowout on the caravan, but we managed to get a new tyre eventually.  The joys of motoring for a Rottie!! See you next time and thank you for a great weekend.

Poppie had a great time over weekend at Rottiefest. Long drive as we live on Merseyside but had to drive up to Scotland to pick up my owners friend and her 2 kids then head to Leicester. With breaks for kids and myself took about 12 hrs in total. Not much sleep Sat as that was the event day but what a great day. Lots of dogs, mainly rotties, but most were really nice to me and gave me space when I needed it. Ground was muddy and the humans where sliding around and some fell (they should have 4 paws lol). The food was great.... My owner let me have some of the sausages and chicken from the barbie on sat and some of the breakfast sun before heading home. Another long drive but at least I slept coz I can't drive lol. Now can't wait for next years event.
