Sometimes I think she is a little sad that I was only ever shown as a pup as I never grew big enough to show as an adult, so I never qualified to go.
Mummy has been to Crufts a couple of times since Roma, Soldier and Meegan crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but she says it's not the same without a dog and doesn't really enjoy it at the NEC.
You may remember that Meegan was my surrogate mummy, which you can read all about in my Jackanory Stories
Although by the time I met her she was a distinguished old lady and had lost a hind leg to Cancer, but still young at heart.
I never got to meet Roma and Meegans half brother Soldier as they had gone to the bridge by the time I arrived, but I have heard all about them and I'm sure we would have been firm friends.
Soldier was a Pets as Therapy dog, and one of the first if not the first, Rottweilers in the country to do this job. Very soon his son Marco joined him too and they visited our local hospital together for many years.
Roma was a special lady and mummy says she was a once in a lifetime dog, although I did think that was me. She saved mummys life by preventing her from walking down a path in the woods, she kept blocking mummys way and pushing into her every time mummy told her off and tried to get around her.
All of a sudden there was a massive cracking noise, a massive branch crashed down through the trees, and landed right where mummy would have been if Roma hadn't been so clever about stopping her.
Mummy was 8 months pregnant at the time so Roma saved my hooman brother too, I wish I could have met her and shook her paw for being so clever.
Because I don't need to go to Crufts to know
that I'm a Champion.
