I know that it will be hard for you to believe but I, Ambrose, am five years old today! How time flies. Barbara says that I still act like I am two. I say that I am young at heart and who wants to act like an old fogey anyway?? Tonight I am going to get a special treat with dinner and a new toy that I don't have to share with Niamh! Here are some photos that Barbara took today.

Sometimes after I have helped Barbara in her dog training work she takes me over to my favorite pet supply store, Phydeaux, and lets me pick out a toy or a treat. That is my "paycheck". This week Ambrose and I helped her work with a beautiful German Shepherd who gets over excited when she sees other dogs. We acted as the decoy dogs and Penny did very well with us. Afterwards we went to Phydeaux and I thought that we would get our paychecks. Here I am sniffing the wonderful scents in the food aisle.

I do like to go to Rally Trials. This evening we went to one at the Durham Kennel Club which is only 45 minutes from my house. Barbara thought that we should try to get the third leg of our Rally Novice title so we entered. I can lie down calmly in my crate and watch all the other dogs.

First it was fish, then Barbara trained a chicken. You will not believe what she is training now. A couple of weeks ago she came home with a most intriguing odor on her clothes and hands. We had no idea what it was - think pork chops. Barbara is helping to clicker train a pig!!!
