MONDAY 8TH MAY
We are doing Mondays journal on Tuesday morning. The first job yesterday was a trip to Droopys stud to collect brood bitches that had been mated. While I was away the lads fed all the dogs and cleaned all the kennels. The main job of the day was trialing at Shelbourne Park. Traffic was really bad heading into Dublin to the point I thought we wouldn’t make it in time for trials thankfully we made it. We were late back last night so we updated the dogs for sale page Tuesday morning.
