Alfie gets his Silver GCD
Alfie Crybbe showing off his Silver Good Citizen Dog rosette. He had to go to Harrogate to take his test and he said it was very hard and not all the dogs got through. They had to get in and out of the car calmly and walk round busy streets and do sitting still for ages..and all sorts. I think he's trying to let me know that I won't be able to do it..but I might just surprise him!
The garden is getting very pretty now with lots of different flowers. Judith & Leigh keep getting more to put in. They bought lots at Lotherton Garden festival and I went along with them - it was Aoife's first day out but she was too little to walk in the crowds and had to be carried but lots of people stopped to stroke and talk to her. I thought they wouldn't notice me but then some people did see me and I got some attention too - it's hard when you go out with a puppy and everyone just wants to see them. When we got back I had a good run round the garden and checked the mirror - to see if I was still looking good:
Yes not bad.. I think I still look like a schnauzer even if Aoife thinks I'm a horse!
What a life with an affenpinscher pup!
