August was a busy month. We attended the Condobolin Show circuit. Gaia had some great results with 9 Minor Puppy In Group wins from 12 shows. She also picked up a few points towards her title.
Sadly on the 28th August I had to give Caesar his wings. He was 2 weeks short of his 15th birthday, a great innings for a grand old man.
