Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and all the very best for the New Year
There were many highlights of 2013 and some sad ones.
Our School continues to grow and during 2013 we met many new dogs and their owners. It was a pleasure seeing them blossom.
We launched our Field of Dreams Display Team - The Dream Team and how good are they looking. Hopefully many will get to see them in 2014 as we do it for Charity.  
Bob has trained many people successfully over the years and this year again was no exception Jayne Widdess, Sarah Maclean and Roger Teasdale have made the England Team for 2014 in Italy.  Well done to them.
Lots of people have seen their rosettes grow and move up the Grades during 2013. Looking at the potential of many handlers and their dogs in training the trend will certainly continue in 2014
Evie is now taking classes and doing really well. This year will be interesting for Evie with her dog Ace, together with Blaze and Roxy, starting in February when she competes in the big International Junior Competition. She has already had amazing success and at the very young age of 13 this is no mean feat.    
For 2014 Bob will be doing his own Blog and reporting on the Agility Front on a regular basis with his usual sense of Yorkshire humour.
Re-homing of dogs has again been very rewarding with dogs being taken into fabulous homes. Big thanks to the people who made this possible. Already in 2014 dogs are looking for homes.
Rob Dixon RIP
Sadly in August we heard the very sad  news that Rob Dixon had passed away very suddenly. He was a lovely man, with a huge personality and is greatly missed. Rob took us to Crufts this year giving up his whole week-end to drive the bus. Sally with Maisie has to go on without him, but I am pleased to say that she continues to come to the Field and is a part of the Display Team.
Many people had to say goodbye to their dogs, it is very hard and anyone who has dogs will completely understand the heartache this brings with it.  
So to everyone here's to a fun filled 2014 at the Field and may all you wish for be fulfilled
