No ribbons were awarded this time out, but Bell and Lynda completed the Fun 'n' Trick class in good standing. In a class as full of such talented doggies as this bunch, it would have been difficult to pick a winner. So they didn't: eveyone was a winner, including those doggies who were part of the Advanced Fun 'n' Trick class, which shared the timeslot.
Proud over-achievers Bell and Lynda grab yet another blue ribbon (Bell's third!) and a quarter-share of first place in the Graduate Novice Obedience Training class, as well as a special award for being "the only dog who didn't run away". As the curriculum for this particular round of Graduate Novice included lots of fun-n-trick stuff, they're well positioned for their next class, Fun 'n' Trick. They may also pursue Search and Rescue.
Bell and Lynda score another blue ribbon and another share of first place (tied with Maya, a tawny boxer) in the Novice Obedience Training class, with special recognition for "drop at a distance". Lucy and Bob settled for sole possession of third place in the Fun 'n' Trick class.
Bell and Lynda grab a blue ribbon and a share of first place in Puppy Training class, for nailing "sit stay", "down stay out of sight", and "drop at a distance". They also grabbed a yellow ribbon and a share of third place for excellence in heeling.
On to Graduate Novice Obedience Training, and Lucy and Bob finished in a tie for first
place, while Tiger and Lynda once again held second. We got us a dynasty!
Lucy and Bob placed third (yellow ribbon) in the Novice Obedience Training class at BRB K9 (where Lucy was born); Tiger and Lynda placed second.
