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!


  1. Wey hey!!! Well done Alfie on your GCD Silver - that's brilliant! I'm sure you'll show them how to do it too Magic, the photo of you and Aoife is brilliant - just right for a caption competition. We wondered if you ever visit The Schnauzer Forum, there are tons of Schnuazer mad humans on there swapping stories, if you don't know it, it's at -if you do then tell us to shut up!! Love Dex & Lou x

  2. Hi again Magic! We're glad you found the forum and hope you join up, there are a lot of people on there involved in showing too. D & L x

  3. Hi! Dexter and Louis sent me. I've got a salt and pepper miniature schnauzer too - his name is Oscar. It's nice to see more schnauzers in the blogosphere! That last picture is absolutely adorable, by the way.

  4. Hey Magic, I just visited to check out what a GCD is. Lol, have you gotten yours? Do you need a specific training to get a GCD?

    Well, good for Alfie... now if he could only not think of you as a horse (I thought Aiofe was a girl schnauzer. Isn't that Alfie on top you?)... maybe the silver GCD would turn to gold. LOL

    Huggies and Cheese,
