I got all the waste away and we hunted pups.

I also collected food for pups from the supermarket.

On Thursday we got an inspection from John Nolan and Tony Fahey. All went well and to be fair to John he commented on how well our hounds look.

It took the whole day so neither myself or Padgie got anything else done as they went through every hound.
