Yesterday was a long day! We went to Hampton, Virginia and participated in two dog obedience trials in one day. This was towards the last two legs to get the Beginner Novice title for Johnny. It was also his 9th birthday along with his sister Jane.
Between the two shows, Johnny and I went to Virginia Beach.
The Portsmouth Chesapeake Obedience Training Club (PCOTC) gives prizes for first place, so I got $20 and a nice new 6 ft leather lead in addition to the ribbons. Thank you, PCOTC!
I was gone for 11 hours. I am happy to report that the five dogs i left at home were able to hold it! I was very surprised that even See See (females take longer to develop those “holding it” muscles) did not make a mess! Needless to say, I don’t make a habit of leaving them that long without being able to go outside. I only fed them half rations that morning.
