The Rest of the Story

Some of you were maybe wondering
why Mom and Hazel
were dressed as clowns in this picture



Each August Mom attends a three day
Obedience and Rally Trial in a nearby town.
On Saturday they offer what they call
non-regular classes.
You don't earn titles in these classes,
they are for practice and fun
The last one of the day is the much
anticipated TEAM competion.
4 dogs and 4 handlers on each team.




 When Mom first started participating in
Team everybody had matching tshirts
Then we started customizing the tshirts based
on our team name



Then one year we decided to "dress up"
and it was so much fun.
We also added music. 

The next year the other teams followed suit
so now every team is in costume 

There usually 4 to 6 teams entered
It has become the highlight of the trial
Everyone anxious to see what "themes"
the teams have come up each year.

This particular year our team was
"Send in the Clowns"
It was inspired actually by
Hazels performance in the Rally ring the prior year,
she was more interested in clowning around than
doing what she was supposed to!




We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Greta
