Rally and Obedience Update

What a week I had!
After getting my (and Mom's) first agility title
we headed to the Blackfoot Shows 

Thurs, Fri & Sat 
we were entered in Rally Intermediate

Thursday we qualified 
with a score of 91 and second place!

Friday our score of 92 tied for 1st place
but we had a slower time so we were awarded 2nd place

Saturday's course was the most difficult so far
All we needed to do was qualify with at least 70 pts
to earn our Rally Intermediate Title

There were 10 dogs in our class Saturday 
and I finished with a score of 96 and 1st place!!!

Here the judge is giving us our pretty pink new title ribbon

Two of our training friends also finished their titles

Sunday we entered Preferred Novice Obedience.
It was our first time doing off leash heeling 
and it did not go so well. 
As Angel Greta would say
It was a great learning experience!

Can't complain about earning two new titles in one week!

Mom says she is very proud of me!

Wahoo Wednesday!!

Sorry we were not around much yesterday

I was a little busy


That is right my friends

Me and Hazel and Mom and Dad
drove 2 hours to Filer Idaho so I could take the
AKC Agility Course Test
The ACT is for beginner agility dogs
There are two levels 
ACT 1 and ACT 2

ACT 1 has jumps, tunnels, the tire, table and A-frame.
You are allowed 3 attempts at each obstacle 
but must complete the course in 60 seconds

My first run I received a pawfect score of 100 
with a course time of 44.67 seconds

My second run was even better
pawfect 100 - course time 26.22 seconds!

Yay! My ACT 1 title!!

For the ACT 2 they add in the teeter and weave poles.
Our first run I was very distracted and kept sniffing around
Three attempts to complete the weaves,
we made it through the course 
but over the course time of 70 seconds
Turned out I needed to poop!

After taking care of business
 our second run was much better
weave poles on the first try 
but when we got to the table I did not want to get on it. 
We finally had to move on but because I did not complete the obstacle we did not qualify. 

Overall Mom was very pleased with how we did.
Hazel & I even got to share a McDonald's hamburger 
on the way home! 

Today we rest  -

Tomorrow Mom & I go to the Blackfoot Dog Shows
Thurs, Fri and Sat we are entered in Rally Intermediate 
Sunday we entered Preferred Novice Obedience

Then the following weekend we are going to
 Farmington Utah for a Tea Cup Agility trial.

Fun times!

Wheelie House Tour

We finally got Mom to take some pictures 
of our new wheelie house

It is a little bit shorter than our old wheelie house

But it has a slide out on the one side
 which makes so much difference

As the one granddaughter said
"it is like a hobbit house,"
"it looks small on the outside but big on the inside"

So let us give you a tour

The first thing we did was get some better steps
 to make it easier for us (and short mom)
 to get in and out

Come on in friends!

How do you like our entry rug?

We liked it so much 
we had Mom put one in front of the kitchen sink too

These are our special steps
To get up on the bed

Mom just loves the open design 

But she did not care for the open shelf 
between the two bed cabinets

so they put up a shower curtain rod 
and hung curtains

The couch (that can fold down as a bed)
 is in the slide out
The black circles on the floor is where the table legs go

This is a stock photo of how the table looks

It seems just like a little house and Mom & Dad 
had fun shopping for decorations

They put up a clock and some wildlife photos
Mom found a great holder for our leashes

We truly feel blessed!

Here you can see the big closet and pantry, the fridge 

and ...

Dad found this sign for the bathroom BOL!

a place to hang our keys!

Mom really loves that the kitchen has a nice countertop!

Thanks for taking the tour

We can't wait to take it out camping!

Flower Friday

We are happy to join Miss Rosy today 
for Flower Friday

We thought we would show you some of the flowers
 that have sprung up around the PugRanch

Mom really likes tiny delicate flowers!

Pink petunias!

These ground covers come up every year!

They all started out tiny several years ago

but get larger every year

The dianthus is in full bloom

Mom forgot what these are called 
but they have been very hardy
They come up every year 
and she has been able to split them up
 and replant with great success

Thanks Rosy for hosting Flower Friday!

Smart Hazel

some of you were wondering if I was in jail

My goodness no!
I was just on the deck watching Mom & Mabel

You see when Mom brings Mabel outside 
to do training or practice or whatever it is

she always brings out treats

I stay out of the way and watch from the deck

While Mabel has to earn her treats 

I'm over here Mom!
I just peek through the railing and smile

Mom can't resist my cuteness and gives me a treat
Pretty smart huh??
