I have learned some rules the hard way- by being a blockhead. For example, I once forgot bc running late, and did a CD leg with Tally wearing his Orvis collar with his name and number stitched on it. Usually, I change it to a plain flat leather one. We Q'd, but then the elderly ring steward caught the collar on the way out and we lost our leg bc the judge had not written in his book yet.
Another time, I was running late and wore my flipflips in the rally ring. Tally came front, and just caught the tips, so when I stepped back to do the 1,2,3steps, I left my shoes!
The judge was like, hey Cinderalla, get your shoes. I was flustered and excused myself.
Finally for our last CD leg at in outdoor show, it was downpouring rain like I cannot explain in words- torrential. I had a rain coat on that had a small loge reading "Yale University Crew". Since this is not dog related, I did not think twice about it.
Lol, the judge made me take it off and I ended up in my t shirt out there soaked to the skin( poor Tally did his downstay in an ever-deepening puddle) but he got a great score and finsihed his title bc he is such a good boy.
Most people are not as dumb as me, but I learn some things the hard way!
