Well, the end had to come, and we left Ireland on Monday afternoon, blessed with a faultless journey on a fast catamaran in scorching heat and clear blue skies, which afforded us the perfect end to a lovely holiday with close friends.
The dogs did extremely well at the European Winner Championship Dog Show earlier in the day, with all four dogs taking 1st place in each of their classes! See below:
