Arrival Story:
Harpo is Percy's nephew. His mum is Gitta and his Dad is Gistaar - they live with Henny and Ralph and they are both champions and very beautiful. One day the phone rang and it was Henny calling to tell me there were some pups and that I should come visit and see if any of them would like to come and live with me and Percy the Pooker. The pups were three weeks old and very very cute. I had been waiting a long time for that phone call so I went to the farm the next day to meet the pups. I knew it would take a while to decide which pup was going to share our lives and that was a good excuse to go back and visit a lot and watch the tiny furballs grow. One time we took our friend Keren to help us decide and while she was cuddling Harpo he peed on her jumper. It was a sign.

Harpo has been studying obedience for about three years now. Its starting to work, but he still trashes the kitchen and eats unnerpance. On the positive side of the ledger, this year he earned his Companion Dog Excellent title and has won several club matches. He is currently competing in Open and working on Utility Dog (UD) exercises. He hasn't eaten his UD leather scent discrimination articles for about a year. When he was one year old he competed in the very successful Rally-O team, Bongo's Beatniks and he is a member of two Dog Obedience Clubs. His other favourite activites include herding ducks, doggy-dancing, eating and snoozing. He loves his Mum and her side of the bed is his favourite.

Well - i did it - i got my Companion Dog Excellent title - my average score for the three passes was 190/200 - my Mum says i'm really *really* clever! (its because i'm a Working Dog!)

Now i'm training for my Utility Dog title - the exercises are really interesting and a lot of fun - i get to do directed jumping, scent discrimination, directed retrieves, tracking/searching for lost stuff (my training toy for this is a black plastic Rattie - but Mum says i have to change it soon to 'the real thing' - whatever that is).

I love my Mum and i love training with her - she's patient with me and we get to do tricks as well as formal obedience so its always FUN!

that's the secret to Obedience - keeping it FUN!

Bye for now
