Brew goes to the Enumclaw Fun Match

Well, I wish I had lots of pictures to show you, but both of my photographers bailed on me: Jo (because of Bainbridge Island Cherry Pie - an UNACCEPTABLE EXCUSE) and Tonya (because Eavan was sick - an acceptable excuse).

Brew did quite well on the show grounds after he settled down. However, in the ring from my perspective, it was not so good. There seem to be lots of white spots on the ground that Brew just had to sniff and all the distractions constantly had him looking everywhere except at me. He also seemed to have forgotten that when I stop he is also supposed to stop and sit next to me, not continue forward and then turn around and look at me. We didn't have any warm up time for the pre-novice obedience so I guess I'm partly to blame.

In the Rally ring, (which was in a horse ring with very soft dirt), I think he did a little better just got a bit dusty. However, I think the handler (me) needs a little more work. The judge keep saying the sign is supposed to be on your right. OK, I get it! No one ever told me that before or maybe I wasn't listening.

On a whim, I decided to try the Good Canine Citizen(CGC) test. Brew passed with flying colors.

This was the only video I got of Brew at the show, a true beagle

Jack A Roo was also there with his family. Sarah showed Jack in the conformation ring. Go here to see the video (it wasn't uploading for some reason)
