Slightly more confident than his debut but still pretty shocking, on both of our parts! It was a wet day so his coat absorbed the orange-red sand like a sponge! He ran more open this time, even getting a 5th place...
Oh god, what a bloody disaster. Seriously, I'd proofed him at outdoor shows, but I didn't realise how sensitive he'd be to indoor! It was like reverting back 6 months with his training.
Over a period of 6 months, we did a few 2x2 training sessions in between his photography work which culminated in September 2016
At 10 weeks old Alf had his first session with a photography student. Teaching students photography was my main business when Alf was that age, and he stepped into his role as a model effortlessly.
At 13 weeks old, we had a predicament with rAlf. With a studio series of photographs looming, I desperately needed one of my own dogs to be able to catch a normal sized tennis ball, on repeat, time after time.
24th October 2014 marked the day I met my soulmate. I don't class it as anything else & the accidental meeting was simply perfect.
