    Molly and I came third in the obedience class at the Eastbourne dog show today. It was called ' pre-beginners' but wasn't affiliated to the KC. I was very pleased!

    It was very basic - heelwork with about-turns and a right turn plus a recall. Then two stays of one minute each, in sit and then down (whole class at once).
    Molly's stays are always fine (famous last words...) and her recall was a good speed and she sat straight in front of me (she's often crooked). The heelwork was what moved us down the order. She lagged at first but the judge commented that her last length was 'very nice'.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments.
