10.50am on 27th July and around 23˚C. The pressure is mounting and
anxiety levels are high. We’ve spent months preparing for this moment and it
all comes down to this. Ella gives the ten minute warning over the tannoy and
it is time for me to step up. No, it’s not the Commonwealth Games but
Loughborough Dogs Trust Summer Show and I’m wearing the dog suit. Gulp!
Feeling strange at first, I start waving randomly at people and love that they wave back. I settle into it and spot the micro-chipping stand. After all, it will soon be a legal requirement. It didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would, like a wasp sting I’d say and over quickly.
