flyball at the Royal Melbourne Show

Penny's going to take part in a flyball demo at the Show tomorrow evening! As far as I know, we're only expected to do what a beginner can do, which hopefully won't be too demanding.

But the big issue has been the purchase of a crate, in case Penny needs to be in it whilst waiting her turn.

What a business it turned out to be! The first crate I bought was not only huge, but had a manufacturing defect, so that one went back to the shop.

Then I bought another, online - too small! (The problem of what to do with that one will have to wait.)

And finally, another crate - it looked enormous, but when Penny stretched out inside, it only allowed a small amount at each end, so I don't think we could have gone smaller.

The great thing is that she moved in happily, as soon as I tossed some of her toys inside, and almost immediately went to sleep in there - I left the door open.

Anyway, she's happy and we're happy, so I guess we've just got to hope she's used to it by tomorrow night!

Mitch and I have always loved our crates, even though they have been put away now. Good luck at your flyball demo, Penny!
Mom doesn't really have a recipe for the potato salad. She normally boils about 7-8 potatoes and adds 5-6 hard boiled eggs (cooled) and 4-5 stalks of celery and about 1 teaspoon of vinegar and toss the whole thing together with mayonnaise. We're guessing it's about 1/2 cup of mayonnaise but it depends on how dry or creamy you like it. Oh yes, salt and pepper to taste!

Love ya lots
