Our annual visit to Antwerp for Darklands took place at the beginning of March – thankfully just before the global pandemic of COVID-19 kicked in. With the Mr Puppy Europe competition being held on the Sunday, I had a chance to have 3 entirely different days out at the Darklands event this year.

Darklands started on the Friday this year, and I had been asked to be involved with the X-Awards show – playing around on stage as my ‘Naughty Pup’ persona. I was basically told that I could be on stage throughout the presentation of the awards and get up to various bits of mischief. This saw me going up to the presenters of the overall awards, the presents of individual prizes and even the winner… and I also got to ‘dance’ along with the drag queens. This was a good, fun time and I even managed to have a bit more fun back at the hotel 🙂

Saturday saw me enjoying a nice leisurely morning in bed, before heading down to Darklands. With the weather being nice in the morning, we took the opportunity to take some traditional Darklands photographs.

The rest of Saturday was spent meeting up with friends and also touring around the Fetish Market. This gave us some time to look at various stalls and also enjoying a nice relaxing time. This year, we did not really buy too much, but it was nice to have a peaceful time to look around. I did also get involved in a bit of a chit chat on stage about Puppy Play and the Mr Puppy Europe contest as well… One thing I did get to try on the Saturday was a Cararra Designs chastity belt – which they seemed to be quite happy to send me home wearing until the next day! *growls*

Sunday saw me helping with the Mr Puppy Europe contest, as well as participating in a drag performance with Pup Trumpet as two Dalmatians for a take on Cruella De Ville. I was also on stage as part of the Mr Puppy Europe contest at the end for the presentation of the newly elected Mr Puppy Europe; who turned out to be Pup Trumpet from the UK.
