I received in the mail my official certificate
for my Rally Novice Title!
I only need one more qualifying score to complete my Beginner Novice Obedience title
so Mom decided we should go to another show
to see if we could finish it this year
It was a great learning experience for me!
You know what that means -
No qualifying score.
That darn sit stay while
Mom walks around the perimeter of the ring.
The Judge told Mom to walk forward and turn right.
which put Mom walking right towards the exit of the ring.
HEY MOM!! don't leave without me!!!!!!
So... no sit stay.
But Mom says we came away
with some VERY positive things.
The first trial I went to in June was a big dog show,
but the obedience/rally rings were in a separate area
far from the breed and agility rings so it was pretty quiet.
The trial we went to in August
was an obedience/rally trial only.
A little more going on but still pretty quiet.
Well the show we went to on Saturday
had everything going on -
breed rings, agility rings, obedience and rally rings,
people and their dogs milling around everywhere.
I was pretty excited when we got there
after a 2 1/2 hr drive.
LOTS of smells in the long grass!
But I behaved myself very well
and after we found a spot to set up
I settled right down and that pleased Mom!
When it was our turn in the ring I heeled very nicely,
Mom says the best I have done yet,
I did all my sits on the halts too!
My sit for exam was perfect
and my recall was pretty good too!
Before we left we visited some of the vendor booths
and Dad bought me a cool coat.
Not only is it a cool looking coat
but it is supposed to help keep me cool when it is hot.
It is made of terry cloth and when it is wet it
will help me stay cool for a while.
So overall it was a good day!
