Have you got a lab that is insistant on picking practically anything up whilst out walking?! (and I mean anything 8O) and not wanting to drop it! Or is mine the only one?! :?

Hi all

Smudge is always trying to pick up stuff off the ground! I am always stopping to try and extract things from his mouth - sometimes worry about what I'm going to find!

All the best,
Nicola.

Corbie picks stuff up but them throws it away not long after - people must think he's the litter bug culprit! :D He did eat a caterpillar on his walk recently, luckily it wasn't poisonous. Tried to get it out of his mouth, but it was gone too quick!

Brady is a total Womble, especially at the beach - maybe beachcomber is a more apt word! Tonight he found a seagulls head (or skull rather :dead: ) Yuck.

Last night he caused a bit of hilarity at training too. After being complimented on how good our heelwork was, we went on to try some heelwork around cones (mini traffic cones). The trainer wanted us up two at a time, and Brady was first up because of his impressive performance.

Well, could I get him to walk past a cone without picking it up? :oops: Lets just say it provided a bit of light relief in the middle of the training session - the little comedian that he is :toothy1:

Hi Rona

Congratulations on your success at training. The only thing Smudge was used as an example for was his 100% attendance! lol! I'm afraid he was the class joker/rebel! He didn't even go anywhere near the cones! lol! Just ran off across the room!

All the best,
Nicola.

Hi Nicola,

thankfully Brady LOVES his training sessions - all that meeting and greeting is the highlight of his week! He also performs brilliantly, loves showing off how clever he is :thegraduate:

If only he was like that all the time! (could it be something to do with the massive bag of liver cake at the training class? :D )

Hi Rona

That's where we were going wrong - no liver cake!

Smudge used to love seeing the other puppies but a bit too much and was far too distracted to concentrate on being obedient! lol!

The funniest was when we went to our final class and were the only ones that turned up. Smudge had us all to himself so we let him off the lead - cue 4 grown women and Chris chasing around Caxton Village Hall after him! Great fun!

All the best,
Nicola.

Hi Nic640,

Another womble here with our Bradley! :lol:

A walk soon becomes a treasure hunt for him & he will try to grab hold of things many things as he can! He's quite clever now in that if an interesting object is approaching, and he knows he's not going to be allowed it (i.e.mum or dad remove it before he gets to it!) he will 'paw' the item into his easy reach quickly, before we can get hold of it! Little monkey!

There always seems to be a plastic bottle, old juice carton, pine cone or dirty tissue just waiting to be found in the 'lab treasure hunt' !! :D
