However, onwards and upwards!
Millie and Bonnie have returned home after their month long training with me and I'm pleased to say that I've been receiving some wonderful updates from a very happy owner.
Also gone is another training dog, Darcy, who once again spent a month with me. Yet again I've been hearing some lovely news about a very reformed character and owners and family who are really pleased with how she has changed in only a month.
New dogs just in are Scot the Dalmation (original name Spot but wisely changed by new owners! ), Tilly the black Cocker Spaniel and Chester - the water loving dog who must be in his element at the moment.
But with dark clouds approaching again, I'm going to don more wet weather clothing and venture on another walk, taking the camera in a plastic bag ............. what can I say ???
