3 foxes

We heard an excrutiating howl on our walk yesterday morning and we had to investigate.  We saw what looked like a dog limping towards us and we thought that it had been bitten by something.  It turned out to be a fox, probably after a fight with another one.  There were three in the field altogether, so maybe two males were fighting over a female.  Anyway, I ran over and gave chase.  They all three saw me and ran the other way and jumped over a wall to continue their fight.  They were faster than me but it was a good sprint.  Daddy says he is pleased they didn't gang up on me because I would have come off worse!

I'm as good as GOLD!

Last night, I obtained my Kennel Club Good Citizen gold award!  It was not easy, but my 6 friends and I all managed it.  I nearly messed up with the 2 minute down-stay, as I was distracted.  I was OK on my second attempt, which turned out to be the longest 3 minutes of my life!  Daddy tried to mess it up as well with the questions, but he scraped through.  In my opinion, he was trying to be too clever.

It was a happy occasion because we all passed, but it was also sad because that was the last night of training for me.  I have made a lot of friends there and the trainers (Jeanette, Celine, et al at Castle Court Dog Training Club) said they will miss me as well.  I was always so excited every Wednesday night.  Anyway, let's hope an agility class can be set up locally later this year so I can stretch myself even further.
