Well, today I had to have my old dog Brook put to sleep. He was two months shy of his 15th birthday and it was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. His quality of life was suffering and it pained me to see him in agony, a shadow of his former self.
I'll always remember him, he taught me so much about dog training, mainly what not to do, as he's the dog that got me into all this.
Finally I finished a competition!!! Today Fern was awarded a CoM in the cold game working test put on by West Lancs Gundogs down at Ormskirk. Her blind retrieve on the 2nd run cost us a placing, she needed to be handled a few times before picking it.
Only a working test I know, but cannot wait for the next one!!!
