We all got prizes last week in my house!
Auntie Penny got her birthday cake prizes. She win at life. And at being a Super Springy Spaniel, (with a bit of arthrytis)
I won some prizes at my dog clubs fun show. We raised money for a local dog rescue. Mum beed pleased with me, but thought I should have done better in some of the serious obedience classes. I got one third and one 5th in those we think. It showed her we need to do work in different places and without treats more. In class I is perfect! (Mum says except for all the barking).
I got placed in the non-sporting pedigree and I got a place in most handsomest dog and I entered best mismatched pair with my friend Nell and we got third in that.
They had a fastest recall and I did pretty well and got 9.7 seconds over 50 yards, but I did not place in the top 6th. My friend Nell goes really fast and she got down to 8.3 seconds and came third. A little spaniel called Jess won, cos you had to clip on the lead and touch the post and Nell casnot stop that quickly. Mum says I probably would have gone faster if TNP be at the other end.
I didn’t do my trick for best trick though. It the last class of the day and Mum did not enter me, since she could tell I did not be in a trick mood and she didn’t want to practice and get me all excited before the obedience. But Grandma came with us and entered us anyway. I did it but really half heartedly and we only got 5th. (out of 5, bol!) But the 1st to 3rd winners didn’t just do one trick, so Mum thinks maybe we misinterpreted the rules, as I just did a reverse around Mum, (plus the winner, a working labrador, did retrieves of dummies, in order, which really very clever, but it his job, so we could never have competed with that with just a little fun trick, so Mum says we can take some consolation from that.)
Anyways, the most important but be that I got lots of attentions and lots of treats (every ribbon got you a gift bag of stuff from fish for dogs (all free from wheat, yippee!) So I has plenty of treats now!
Molly and Faline got their prizes through from Garth’s silly photo contest.
