The previous weekend it was the Cork Summer Show.
Knowing there would be livestock around The Hound got left behind at the house while we sought out ice-creams and tried to take it all in. We were there on the Sunday and while there were plenty of horse competitions and dog shows, it seems that Saturday was the main day for the farm animals.
Nonetheless there were a number of sheep being judged and a docile champion Aberdeen Angus bull was proudly displayed.
As soon as we arrived we did regret not bringing The Hound as there were no restrictions and it would have been good training for him. Given his nature he would have been scared of everything except, bizarrely, the Rottweilers, Boxers and Dobermans.
Look forward to heading along again in a year’s time with The Hound in tow.
