Dear Baxter and Muttley

It was so good to see you in dogson a few weeks ago – mum keeps sayin’ she was amazed that no-one bit anyone else’s bum but we were too busy chillin’….

Proud mum and our smart rosettes....

Anyhoo, we is now officially good citizens – mum’s been doin’ that human thing that looks like snarlin’, you know, when they show all their teef but it means their happy – weird! She says we’s the cleverest greyhounds ever, ‘specially me coz I was very brave and passed the test even tho’ the room was full of scary little dogs and a BIG wasp on the floor.

Dad says we’re always good anyway; mum’s giving us an odd look – she says we now have pawsible deni-ability or summat. So, yer honour, them cats/excitable spaniels/postmen (delete as appropriate) – it was never us coz we’s good citizens!

Lou’s fast asleep – bein’ good is hard work – I need a nap meself so ’til next time….

Yours woofingly

    The gang are very miffed that they don’t have any rosettes…but Gordon Brown has a better chance of winning a landslide election victory than they do of ever becoming ‘good citizens’. Is there a rosette for being a ‘bossy citizen’ or ‘incontinent citizen’ as we may be in with a chance then? Well done, Lou and Blue – you’ve made your mummy very proud.

    Hi Greygal

    In the spirit of modern education there should be dog rosettes for anything that a dog feels that they can achieve – like fiercest guarder of the gate, loudest barker and whatnot – all in the interest of maintaining their self-esteem, of course!

    You do have a logistical problem in that in the classes they only allow one dog per handler – uhm, you’d have to recruit more crew then…..
