Me and my girls

Dogs have always been a part of my life, even as a child. But it wasn't until the summer of 2010 that I finally had my own dog. I collected Tilly, a Clumber Spaniel when she was only 8 weeks old and I think the world of her. Training was not always easy due to her stubborn and headstrong nature but I persevered and she's turned into a wonderful dog and friend. Last year she had a litter of pups and I kept one - Annie.
On a recent (and rare) day out with just our own dogs, Paul took these two photographs of me and my gang !
The only dog I lack confidence in handling personally is an Akita - and the reason is simple.  Several years ago I was attacked whilst training. One minute I was standing, talking to the owner, the next I was on the ground trying desperately to defend myself from being bitten (in vain), as the owner finally managed to drag the damned animal off me. Now you have a little background information, it' s quite clear why these pics of Troy are always with hi…
