In a turn of events resembling the partition between the working classes and those above of old our blue merle sheltie is going to Crufts this year, following his father and grandmother. He is from the UK's top blue merle sheltie breeder and unfortunately is about a quarter inch too tall, ears don't fold right and one or two other "cosmetic" issues that mean he isn't show worthy. So, because my mother is involved with a disabled charity Pets for Therapy where trained dogs and other animals are brought in to give some comfort to disabled people, Benji will be working on the Pets for Therapy stand at Crufts this year. "Get a proper job!" our working class dog will be shouting across at those whose owners have dictated he is not good enough for the likes of them! These pics of Benji more as a puppy than the adult he is turning into. I must remember to get newer shots of him, or pinch some that have been taken already with a decent camera!
