Truth to tell, my heart is bursting with pride.
For the last ten weeks, Dougal has been attending a Beginner Behavioural Class. I just can’t tell you how well he has done. I really can’t tell you how well he has done.
Personally, I believe that he was just too intelligent and was being held back by the other dogs in his class. It was clear to me that he was bored by the level of teaching and was not being stretched enough to realise his full potential. I intend to lodge a complaint with the authorities at the earliest opportunity.
It was the last class and the hounds were being put through their paces. Dougal was doing ‘Stay’ when one of his classmates disgraced himself.
Came the hour and he got his certificate. The graduates circled the hall.
You can’t see Dougal in this photo but he had definitely been where the shiny spot mid left is. I am glad to say that he chose the parade to assert his individuality and deposit a major poo in his tracks.
He’s repeating Beginner Behavioural Class from next week onwards. I blame the system.
