    Indeed why wouldn't he? It's in a Labrador's genetic makeup I do believe :)

    What a result! And what a fabulous photo of Obi and his medal.

    How come you merged teams for this competition?

    The main reason is that we don't have any competition standard short dogs in our club at the moment. The shortest dog sets the jump height - the lower the better. For a two day comp you want to run over low heights, otherwise it's too hard on the big dogs. So we borrowed Freckles and Romeo :) Romeo is tiny but is a powerhouse!
