It’s an Old English Sheepdog’s Life!

July 9, 2019 Graham

Old English Sheepdogs United!

Having owned two old english sheepdogs, I know what a special animal this is and I’m yet to meet one that I didn’t like! As well as meeting all the lovely people behind the dogs, it was something else to see all these dogs gathered in one place. Someone was smiling on us from above for sure, as we all enjoyed a leisurely day in very pleasant weather at the beautiful grounds of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.

We all got to meet people that we had only known through Facebook, before this day, and it was great to chat to them about everything, and anything. I never expected to meet people who live very near to where I grew up, so we talked about places we knew and how these places had changed, or even have a discussion about forensic science! When I look at the group photograph, I can see there are also many people, and dogs, I didn’t get to meet and that’s something to look forward to for the next time!

It was truly a delight to experience the interaction of these dogs who were extremely well behaved in the company of so many other competitors for affection. If only they could talk, wouldn’t it be great to understand how they felt about meeting all these kindred spirits? Here’s a shot of two litter mates being reunited and playing together!
