The sock stealing thief is no more - now she'll pick up a sock and bring it to me, walking almost sideways while her tail wags furiously. And on the simple command of "dead", I have the sock in my hand ( before she goes off and looks for something else !). Typical trait of a Cocker.
I'm looking forward to Brook's owners collecting her as I know they think the world of her and hope they'll be pleased with how they find she can behave and act.
Dexter is now sleeping throughout the night and is a very relaxed dog. The sight of him jumping about wanting to play with Brook or Maddy is something to be seen - thankfully I have no fancy china! Again, I'm very pleased with how his training has progessed. He has gradually become more confident, standing calmly while cars or wagons pass us. Another 9 days to go for Dexter and I'm looking forward to seeing his training continuing to pay dividends.
