Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

It’s a silver!

Louis took his Canine Good Citizen Silver test tonight and passed with flying colours.

Obviously it’s a gear up from the bronze and this time one of the tests was to walk down the street with the examiner following closely. There were a number of young lads hanging around and they saw Louis and were on about him being a Ridgeback. Sue had to stop to talk to them and she let them say hi to Louis. Fortunately Louis was very well behaved.

So – it’s a big well done to Louis but also well done to Sue. I just bask in the reflected glory although I do think my work behind the scenes with Louis has paid dividends! There’s another certificate to frame and another rosette to pin up.

Louis’ going for gold next; he doesn’t know it yet and is content to be back home chomping on a pig’s ear.
