A Brag



I tend to focus my blogging efforts around baking, sewing, knitting,  and shoes… but a big part of my life also revolves around these two!

Buster and Baxter. The dynamic duo.

We spend a lot of time together… and we do dog shows. Yup – the beauty pageant part of it (conformation) and competitive obedience.

I would be remiss if I didn’t share a little brag from yesterday’s show. My younger basset – Baxter – FINALLY got his Pre-Novice Obedience title. For many dogs, this level of obedience is a walk in the park. Both my boys have this title now (you have to get three qualifying scores under two different judges) but let me tell you – this has been years in the making! Bassets aren’t your traditional obedience dogs. The boys and I are often comic relief in the obedience ring. I love working with them and we do this for fun but I’m so proud of what we have accomplished. And I think they enjoyed what we do together too!

My very good friend came to watch us in the ring yesterday and took a few iPhone pics. It kinda captured the moment beautifully.

Here we are going back into the ring waiting to be awarded our ribbon. Sit nice Baxter. Good boy!

And the judge walks by to present it to us and… it all goes downhill from there… Oh Baxter.

Ah – the moment where I’ve resigned myself to just deal with it. Yes, please meet my “obedience dog.”

As usual, everyone gets a good laugh from the basset.
