Well, the Dog Show has ended with all the winners very happy. I have to confess that I had never seen the breed of dog that won before in my life! He was a seriously cute little black thing called a Affenpinscher. The other three breeds I knew: Maltese, Wire haired terrier and American Cocker Spaniel.

As much as I have enjoyed my time in Helsinki, we are here to attend the World Dog Show and the first day has finally come! We were up reasonably early as we had offered the use of our washing machine to Ros and Col.
