A Good Weekend

Mom and I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday at an Obedience/Rally Trial in Idaho Falls, ID

The trial is held at a lovely park with lots of shade
This is the same trial we attended last year 
where I earned my Rally Novice title 
and 2 "legs" of my Beginner Novice Obedience Title
You might remember that I earned the 3rd "leg" 
and finished that title in June

This time we entered Pre-Novice Obedience. 

This involved both on leash and off leash work

1. On leash heeling pattern and figure 8
2. leash is removed - Stand for Examination
3. Off leash heeling pattern
4. Recall, sit in front, return to heel
5. Sit or Down Stay while Mom walks ring perimeter

And although I was being quite silly - 
I kept heeling on the wrong side

I managed to get qualifying scores on Fri & Sat

Then came Sunday - 
well on Sunday I wanted to stop and eat grass 
instead of staying with Mom.
Then when I was supposed to get ready for the Stay
I was trying to hack up grass that was stuck in my throat
 and I puked a little with the judge standing right there!!! 
And that was the end of that.

So we got 2 "legs" and we only need 1 more.
It wasn't my best performance 
but we had fun and that's what counts

And we saw this guy!

A Weim boy!  
Just like our furiends Goose and Easy!

  15. Oh that does sound like some great fun, I can't believe that you puked up a grass in front of the judge, not your best moment but it sure must have made everyone giggle!

    Aroo to you,

  24. Puking on the judge should totally earn you some sort of special ribbon! Congrats on the one good day, and on having fun the whole time! (Love the new header!)

  25. Sorry you threw up grass on Sunday. It sounds like you had a pretty good weekend overall though.

  26. Crikey ...... I'm so impressed ..... you did great.!!!! The best part is that you had fun. Some of the triallers out here get a bit too serious about it all. I loved the grass eatin' and puking bits best!!

  27. OMP - your story cracked me up, Greta. Chowing some grass and then puking in front of the judge! HA HA! Don't ever lose that spark!

    Also I love your new masthead picture. I think it's the first time I got to see it (you might have had it up for a while - I've been bad at blogging lately). All three of you are so serious! I wonder how your mom was able to get a photo of ALL OF YOU looking forward and with such serious expressions!
