I had been to Obedience Trials in the past but I didn't like it. I know how to do all that Obedience stuff but Strangers were always wanting to come up and touch me. How Rude!! I finally figured out if I embarrassed my Moms enough they would stop making me go. The last time I went to an Obedience Trial I licked myself (in that place where only dogs can lick) for the entire time I was supposed to be sitting. Never again did I have to go and show off for a Stranger with a clipboard.
I knew something was up because we had started practicing Obedience like we used to do a long time ago. Then I had to go to the Vet's and get shots ( well okay I had to have that done anyway but I am still going to blame it on the Obedience thing) Then I went and had a Bath I really knew then that something was up.
My Mom came home from work on Saturday night and started putting papers and collars and treats and her camera in her bag. I knew for sure I was going somewhere when she put my leash in the bag. I saw her pick it up and I ran over and jumped around cuz I know anytime Treats and my leash are involved we must be going somewhere fun!! And then she went to bed?!? Huh?!? What's the deal with that. I decided I needed to sleep in the bed with her in case she decided to sneak out in the middle of the night.
We got up when it was still dark time and then when my Mom was ready, me and my Big, Black, Hairy, Belgian brother Laser headed out the door. My other Mom came and picked us up and we got into the car and headed out. I am the most special dog because there wasn't enough room for me to be in a crate so I got to ride in the back seat with my Mom.
We got to this place with lots of other dogs, and rings set up for them to walk in. I recognized this place right away. My Mom put me in a crate so she could get situated and go and watch my other Mom make Apache do obedience. I barked and snarled at dogs that walked by my crate so my Mom moved me and covered me with a sheet. Besides not liking it when Strangers touch me I really don't like when other dogs look at me when I am in a crate. I feel so helpless.
My Mom took me out for a walk in the smelly grass and then we went back inside. I had to wait in my crate for a little while and then my Mom came and got me. Boy was I happy to see her. She walked me to the Obedience Rings and I followed her in. But this was different kind of Obedience?!??! We got to walk where we wanted as long as we stayed to the right of the orange cones, I saw a Clipboard Person in the ring with us but she never came near us. We did all kinds of Obedience walking just like we practice in class and at home and my Mom was talking to me and telling me how good I was doing. I was telling my Mom how good she was doing too by wagging my tail. Finally we got to run out of the Ring where I had many admirers clappinng for me (of course I deserved it) I got some yummy yummy treats. Then we had to go back into the Ring but my brother Laser got to come with us this time. All we had to do was sit there but my Mom was really happy and the Clipboard Lady gave her 2 Green Ribbons and a Red one and a Yellow one. Mine was Red because I am always better then the Hairy Wolfboy. I kinda like this Rally Thing....I might even do it again.

Enjoyed your blog, also noticed that you now have your RN title and was wondering if you had a pedigree (mum and dad) as I have an international d/b with over 205,000 BC's listed and would love to add you details to it.
