Another week gone and the pups are really feeling their feet now. The Malinois are up on their feet and will soon need the run of the whole puppy pen. They are beginning to get their little characters.
The Laekenois are a cheeky bunch and today the sun was shining and they could come out to play. They are really livewires and try to beat you out of the run door when you make your escape from their sharp teeth. Very outgoing and inquisitive.
News from Guernsey that Venus flew to Jersey for the Dog of the Year competition and Limited Members show. She was 1st in AVNSC Ltd members class,1st Yearling class and 1st Ltd Members under Peter Bailey and then was pulled out 7th in the Best Yearling in Show class under Carol Woods. Brilliant news and her photo will hopefully be in Our Dogs 12th March edition.
Some good training last week with Cello, Cruz and Caper and we had an obedience show yesterday at Newark. We did training rounds and Cello was on a real high--he, or should I say I, was much better in his Beginners round once he had settled. Cruz worked really well too and this was his first Open Obedience show with all the distractions so I was really pleased.
Crufts is looming and this bad weather has really put paid to the dogs being as fit as I would like, and some are threatening to come in season or blow their coats. Breeders Stakes Finals is on the Friday so we will be there 2 days. David and Rusty are running in the Agility Champ class on the Sunday so fingers and toes crossed for that 3rd Ticket.
Deepha and Ann have been invited to the Contest of Champions in March.
Riley, with Diane and Martin, has been winning again in agility and hopefully I will get some photos of him with his trophies to post on here soon.
The weather has been horrific with torrential rain so that everywhere is thick mud again,roll on a nice summer!!!!!
