Linda and Ron have asked me to pass on their thanks in the following message:
''Ron and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the 'hands-on' trainers and the members of Spey Valley for the patience and encouragement they have given us in trying to persuade Leila to behave herself and not scream at the judges as the fancy takes her.
We might (fingers and everything else crossed) now have turned the corner as, at SKC she got 3rd in Post Grad Bitch and actually stood on the table without uttering a sound and wagged her tail at the judge. She was again a good girl at Banff, Moray and Nairn when she allowed the appointed judge to go over her without 'speaking' to him!
I am attaching a picture of Leila as she was a year ago and am hoping that she will revert to her 'arrogant' self, as portrayed, in the not too distant future.
Once again, many, many thanks to all concerned''.
Leila, Ron & Linda (and Leo as well)
