My wife (Linfordjester) and I own a 2 1/2 year old female. Her name is Poppy and she's the joy of our lives. May I amend that to say, she's the joy of our lives when she's not reeking of river water, horse and fox poo, and whatever other foul-smelling substance she can find to roll in.
My wife took her to the Kennel Club's Good Citizen training classes when she was barely 4 months old. She won her Bronze and Silver certificates without batting an eyelash. And may I add that she has eyelashes that most females would kill for.
My wife will be posting her first thread shortly. I'm afraid she's not shy about bragging about Pops, so be patient.
