Well, we are almost wrapping up the year with two accomplishments.
First was the Tracking 1, equivalant to the Schutzhund 1 track.
She passed with the 85 pts out of 100. She kind of lost interest in the last leg, as deer as thick as cattle, in the area and caught whiff of something she shouldn't of done this. But, it does happen, she tried very good with people watching.
So, lesson learned add people for distraction so she concentrates on the track not other things.
The AD, is like a physical fit test for dogs by German standards. This shows if the dog can be as physically fit in the real world, herding all day by trotting constantly over approximately 14.5 miles, I could be wrong in the distance, I believe that is what the rules state.
Besides, her mommy being in pain with sore muscles, Dieta, was the oldest dog in the group and passed with flying abilities. In one hour she was charged again and was ready for a long walk , but I had to decline. So, we enjoyed some t.v and granola snacks from a whole food store.
In the middle of the night I got up with bad leg cramps. I think Dieta was laughing at me in a doggie way by wagging her tail and when I looked at her she had that happy look. So, thanks Dieta for reminding me how I am getting old.
p.s. I love her.
