• It’s not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

  • Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

    It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..." _Hermann Hesse

Whee…it’s an RAE3!!

Two days

Four Trials

One Blue Ribbon

One Perfect Score!

One new RAE3 Title!

One incredibly beautiful working dog!

Congratulations C-Myste Denali RAE3

Check out those scores. This is how it went ALL weekend. An amazing field of dogs performing wonderfully well. A real pleasure to watch! The downside – no margin for error. If you didn’t score 98 or better, no chance for a placement in many cases.

Denali was as focused and consistent as I’ve ever seen her. She did an awesome job, but should have traded me in on a better handler. I did things I’ve never done before – walked through a sign (would have been a second place) and didn’t notice that the judge swapped a Pivot Right for a Pivot Left between the Advanced and Excellent Classes (would have been a third place finish).

Redemption came with the award of a perfect score in the Advanced Class of our Title Leg! The clapping at the end said we looked good out there. I was hoping for a 99. When I saw the 100 I was thrilled! Must be an audience. Last time we got a perfect score Denali’s Gramma Carolyn and her family were there to see it! This time we had some new cardigan friends who were anxious to see how Denali looked in the ring. She didn’t disappoint! Thanks to Lynn and Peter for sticking around to watch!

The final result…one tired girl. Have a nice nap Denali – you earned it!
