    First trip to the beach

    This made me smile before even opening the post. I remember our girly's first trip. She loved it! Beautiful pics. Did he love it? Do you let him off the lead yet? Our dog was about 8 months old for her first trip and I'd never see her run around so loopy before!

    Standard Poodles

    Do you know, I have no idea... he's been around so long, I'd have to ask my mum. I do know his kennel club name is something like Champamar Shipley... (catchy!). We got him from a breeders locally, but I was 15 at the time and only paid attention to the jet back, long legged mass of curls!.

    I've shown these before... but any excuse! This is Billy, he's 10.

    What a clever girl

    Yeah I did. I would be disappointed too. ... but there was one girl who entered her cocker and she'd never done a stay or a recall at all. They failed and she was in bits, but insisted they entered. There's no rush. Our prob is she does her 2 min stay at home and the first few silver weeks...

    What a clever girl

    Ah well done! And at 6 months too. Clever girl. There were a lot of fidgets in our class when we did our bronze... Have our silver next in a couple of weeks and my girl seems to have caught the fidgets for her 2 min stay. We have some work to do!

    Thank you for the tips Lady Godiva

    Possibly ... but then I'm exactly the same. I have a collie x, and just love how clever she is. I hadn't had a collie type before and now I'm totally sold on them. I babble on to anyone who will listen about all my girl's achievements. Nice to hear about a dog really thriving. Good luck...

    dog agility self indulgent

    Well done! I bet she was really pleased with all those rosettes. I've just started out in agility too (only 2 months) and really looking forward to having a go at a competition, but my dog isn't old enough yet. That and I need to stop getting in a muddle! Can't wait. It's so much fun.

    Girl dogs that haven't been spade..

    No idea, sorry... but the vet will tell you. I'd be down there with her today if I were you.

    Bess, our border collie, now four months old

    You're going to love agility. I have a collie X and we've been doing it for about 6 weeks now. It's so much fun! My girl LOVES it. So much enthusiasm (perhaps a little too much!) and now she's starting to know what she's doing it's brilliant.
