Whoopee, Mr. Kip earned the first leg of his CD! His frolic for the day was barrelling in on the recall and doing an automatic finish. Once he was in heel position, he looked up at me — his eyes said “Oops”, so he turned around with his rear toward the judge — nice straight sit, just facing backward. He always plays to the crowd!
Tomorrow we’ll try for a second leg and the Chase-puppy will be shown in conformation. Since Novice obedience and Cardi conformation are at exactly the same time, I’ll just wander back to the conformation building after Kip and I are done to find out how the puppy fared. He looks great and is full of himself today.
