Oscar, Larry and Jack at ring craft
Monday and here is our weekly report from Victoria

Monday at obedience Jack was very well behaved and managed to complete most of the tasks. Jack seems to have taken a shine to Maisie the whippet who comes into the next class, he loses all concentration as soon as he sets eyes on her but he is getting better every week.
At ring craft he had his usual mad 5 minutes at the start then he settled down and the penny seemed to drop, he was finally going straight up and down the mats even when he was an inch or two away from the other dogs, he was also standing nicely to finish which is good news as we are showing him on the 6th January. It was good to see Pat with Larry there. Larry seemed to be enjoying himself.
We looked after Larry Friday evening both dogs as usual got on very well but Larry missed Pat a little. My Dad is teaching me to groom Jack and hopefully one day I will start to clip him. Jack stands really well and lets me brush him although he doesn't like his front feet being touched.
