From the grandeur of the lawns at Kings College, Cambridge at our son’s graduation ceremony yesterday to the middle of a muddy Lincolnshire field today, as Ailbe received his certificate and rosette for passing the Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Scheme Puppy Foundation Assessment. No, he’s not a puppy. As a rescue dog, we cannot be sure how old he is, but thanks to the lovely trainer, Jane, Ailbe was allowed to join the class as an ‘honorary’ puppy and receive his certificate with the rest. Considering the horrible start this lovely little dog must have had in life, we are so proud of the progress he is making. Here he is back home in the garden sporting his rosette.
Well done, Ailbe!
