We have completed day one of a three day dog show. I have two dogs entered in four classes, so I've been pretty busy.

Grace earned a 92 (out of 100) in Rally Excellent (the highest level of rally obedience) and a 95 in Rally Advanced to earn her 6th leg towards her Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE) title. The dog has to earn 10 pairs of passing scores in BOTH Rally Advanced and Rally Excellent on the same day to earn the RAE. We're getting closer.

Jack Jack earned a 92 in Rally Advanced (his first time trying it) and did not too badly. He also competed in Pre Novice Obedience, which is an unofficial class that is the step before the first level of competitive obedience. Pre-Novice doesn't have scores, just pass or fail. Jack Jack passed with flying colours. We had to do a 30 second sit stay (with us about 20 feet away from our dogs). One dog got up to check out another dog, and the visitee got spooked and ran out of the ring. The visitor chased him right out. Jack Jack held his sit stay like a good boy. My heart was almost bursting with pride. What a great start to the dog show!

WTG Jack Jack :nw ! You let those other dogs misbehavior. You are the star!

Ms. Gracie -- that RAE is in sight! Mom didn't even bother trying to do the the RAE with me since I decided that anything that has a jump in it is the equivalent of an agility course which means I go out until I find the next jump (even if this means I leave the ring :evil ).

BTW -- is your Mom ever going to bring you South to the Cocker Nationals??? You know, Reno isn't that far South of the US/CA border?

Maybe we could have the 1st International Butthead Club Convention in Reno (shhhhh, don't let our Moms know :evil ).

:cool Solo
