Oh Yea! It's Park Day

Hi everybody!
Today we are joining our blogville friends for
Park Day
hosted by Finn & Charley and Gizmo
Last Sunday Hazel & I got to spend the day
at one of our city parks.

The local kennel club was having a spring fun match.
It's like a Dog Show with breed showing and
Rally & Obedience rings
except it is not "official"

It is a great way to practice in a dog show environment

There were dogs that I had never met before

 And alot of my friends were there also
And it was at the park that day
 that I met my new little friend
Mom entered me in two events
Rally Novice and Beginner Novice Obedience

Here we are!
My very first time in the Rally Ring
I was very excited to be there and was not
too focused on what I was supposed to be doing
But Mom thought I did OK for my very first time

Hazel was ready for her turn in Rally Advanced.
I waited patiently while they were in the ring

Mom was very pleased, they made it all the way
through the course off leash!
In another area there was an agility course

Peeps paid to run the course with their dog
as a fundraiser for the local
Heart to Heart Pet Partner therapy dogs
Later it was my turn again

This time it was Beginner Novice Obedience
 and I did much better.
I even did a sit stay
while Mom walked all the way around the ring!
And guess what??
I tied for 3rd Place!!

What a great day at the park with friends
old and new

We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Greta

Wow Wow Greta you won a beautiful ribbon, we ...that meaning NONE of us has ever won a ribbon before, or been to an event like that!! We are hoping when mag starts classes (now not till august..dang it) she will start to enjoy things like we must live where people only use their dogs for hunting cos we never have stuff to go to......and since the deers are bigger than us, well get the picture!!
Congrat's to both of you!!

That looked so exciting! Your park is ace! I would have been terrible at all that "listen to the human" stuff - you did such a great job! And a ribbon!! Oh WOW! That was so clever, I'm sure it's just as good as a gold for you!
Are you going to start this stuff for real? I think you'd be great!
Have a great week!
