We begin our Bedlington blog week with our first junior reporter Victoria.

Jack was well behaved at obedience .we have a slight problem where Jack sits when we want him to stand, this is something we will have to work on .I didn't go to ring craft as I was ill but my Dad took him and he said that Jack performed very well but again,we had the same problem where Jack would sit when we wanted him to stand. My Dad got to grips with him at the end of the session. We have entered Jack into the AVNSC Terrier class at the East Kent Canine Society show on the third of February. We are all looking forward to going. I have just been looking at the photographs from the Bedlington Terrier Of The Year, I would like to congratulate all that participants, all the dogs were turned out beautifully and we realised we have a long way to go to meet the standard of the clipping of these dogs .On a sad note, Larry, Pat and David's Bedlington (and Parker's brother) has been poorly this week and has had to spend several nights at the vets. He is home now and we hope he is on the mend although they have not discovered what is wrong .Get well soon Larry. Good luck to all that are showing this week.
Jack and Victoria
Thank you Victoria, we are all very relieved to hear Larry is home and feeling much better. Poor Larry has been very sick spending two nights on a drip at the vets. Luckily the medicine he is on seems to be working. Larry has had many negative blood tests including a liver profile but the vets are still not sure what is wrong, they think he may have a stomach ulcer or colitis. I spoke to Pat at 8am and Larry has had a good night I will phone this evening for an update.

I love the weekly updates on Jack's progress, Victoria. Very sorry to hear about Larry, Pat. I thought he was a lovely dog that day we met him. Hope he's fully restored soon.

thanks for your comments on larry, he has been very sick and has lost a kilo, its been a very frighting experience, when blood in large quantities is present, its very scary, he is a lot better, the vet said we are not out the woods yet, if he goes backward he will have to have a biopsy on lower intestine, but i am crossing fingers thanks to all our friends, its lovely to have support.

Could Larry have got near any rat poison or slug pellets, they can be pretty devastating?

Poor Larry, how awful for Pat and David.
I hope he makes a full recovery soon:-)

Hi, we did ask the vet on slug pellets and rat poison, he seemed to think it would have shown in his blood checks, also i have a job to get larry to eat real food, he is not a foody. but thanks for your comments. he is still doing ok, if very tired and a bit weak.
