I have been down in Dorset for their 7th Annual Hat Festival. More about the hats later but first, let me introduce you to Ms M's gorgeous cavachon puppy Tuppence.
You might remember her from the wedding posts when she joined the Vizsla's Apollo & Aura as part of their pack in France. You might have spied Tuppence dressed up in her Cupid Collar at the wedding in France.
For the Dog Show part of the Hat Festival, her cupid collar was repurposed on to a silk fascinator top that Ms M already had. The lovely Jane from their shop, sewed it on to the fascinator top & added an elastic band to it.
However, Tuppence only had a red collar so I wound broad blue ribbon around her spare collar & then hand stitched it so to form a perfect blue collar to match her Cupid Collar hat & lead.
All hatted & ready for the competition - A Wondering Star daughter accompanied Ms M & Tuppence took FIRST PRIZE for best puppy - YAY - go Tuppence ...
After being so cute & well behaved, she went off to the pub with A Wondering Star & co - being so cute is tiring so she curled up in Pat's organic, fair-trade basket & had a nap ...
Before being carried back home as the champion she clearly is - tired out after her busy day ...
The basket photos are curtesy of A Wondering Star - pop over to her blog to see more of Tuppence.
I hope you have enjoyed Tuppences antics. Thank you for stopping by & for taking the time to read & comment - your company is always appreciated!
