Last trail day and Nickel went out in great style. She didn’t get her title but she passed 3 of the 4 elements and even managed to get First Place in the interior search! We missed the vehicle search because in my stressed out enthusiasm, I didn’t let her work out the problem and in a weak moment called, “Alert.” which ends the search. Considering she’s only 20 days away from delivering, I think she did a fabulous job. The comments from the judges said, “Nice Team Work,” “Nice working Girl,” and … the one directed toward me….”Make sure you watch where the wind is coming from.” … meaning…. I didn’t let Nickel work to her best advantage and this is the search that we didn’t pass.
Here are the poos waiting out a very long day:
All In All it was a fantastic day and a fantastic weekend. I couldn’t be more proud for my poodles…. all four of them 🙂 Considering I have had 4 standard poodles in and out of hotels for the past 4 days is quite amazing. They play hard when allowed and settle into the hotel room beautifully.
