SKOC Trial -- Day 1

Day 1 is over!

Gio was entered in one obedience trial this morning, Novice A. He did fabulous! Qualified with a score of 192.5, placing him 2nd in class (the dog that beat him got 193.5, I believe). But he was high Sheltie in class, so got a nice big ribbon and a monetary prize that covered his entry fees for the day. Not too shabby for his first time in the obedience ring!

We got to meet Bosley and Maggie (and Kim, of course), and watch Bosley in obedience. He was in the same class as Gio and took High in Class. Good job, guys! Because it was a Bernese Mountain Dog booster, they walked away with a lot of cool prizes. Congrats!

After our run through the obedience ring, we manned the St. John Ambulance therapy dog booth for a couple of hours.

Gio worked really hard ...

Romeo wasn't entered in anything so got to stay home and relax until tomorrow. Off tomorrow for another obedience trial and a couple of rally-o trials.
