Pokey LOVES children. He likes nothing better than a small group of young children circled around him giving him hugs and attention. He's not as trusting of adults that cower over him, until he's met them a few times.

My day at the Dodge County Fair

Today my kid and I went to the Dodge County Fair (nine counties participate). We were in intermediate showmanship first. We had to follow Griffin in the ring, so we were often left in the dust, with a big dog right behind us as well. We did pretty well. Enough to get a purple ribbon. My boy was shy and didn't really know what to say when the judge told him to tell him all about me.

Then we did Beg. Novice B obedience. We work well together. If only my boy would remember to loosen the leash more. I'm not sure what I was thinking when asked to do my finish after the recall. I must have been daydreaming but I needed to be asked twice and then guided with a leash. We still did well enough to get reserve champion. Not bad if I must say so myself.

We tried our go at agility today for the first time ever. We got one practice run, and the jumps were okay, I had no clue what to do on the elevated walk, but after being shown and drug across once I got it. I also didn't mind the tunnel, but my leash caught on the cinder block holding the tunnel and slowed us down a little. We had fun, and finished with a purple ribbon with time of 39 seconds. Yeah!

Last week at the Dodge County Fair, I won reserve winners trophy in showmanship. Granted mom pointed out my kid made some mistakes handling but we work pretty well together. In obedience we got a blue ribbon, we still needed lots of practice.

Yesterday at the Sarpy County Fair we got reserve winners in Showmanship again (though no trophy) with a score of 98.5/100. In obedience we got trophy with a score of 141/160 and our judge was pretty tough with the scoring for beginners, but she pointed out as beginners we don't want to move up to the next class before we are ready.

Later we went to the lake and watched the geese swim, it was relaxing.


Another outing

Yesterday we went to the Summer Art Festival downtown. It was fun, but really nobody paid attention to me unless they felt sorry for me after oooing and goooing over Siren and Griffin. I listened well though, and showed off a few tricks to the toddlers whom seemed to enjoy my size and calmness. Overall it was a good day.
