This past weekend Oriana and I went out to Long Island (NY) for two obedience trials. On Saturday we were one of two dogs still qualified going into the group stays but she decided to join 5 other dogs who did not want to sit for the full 3 minutes (made about 2 1/2 minutes). On Sunday we were more fortunate and she pulled it all together to get her first CDX leg in the pouring rain. I was EXTREMELY close to not going Sunday due to the weather but the weather people were saying it would start clearing by 10 AM so I figured we would give it a shot. Am I glad we did. And oh, by the way the weather people were wrong, it NEVER did clear up on Sunday.

Congrats! Looking forward to the brags on those next two CDX legs--I know she can do it. I'm eager to start hitting the rings to work towards my golden's CD but she's also got a ways to go on the long sits and downs; I'm happy with her heeling. After the CD, definitely the CDX too; so glad there's so many people who will be able to give me pointers on this board.

pointer number one...
do not EVER let the dog see you fill out the entry form or mail it in, or these days, submit it online.
the second they see you enter a show, they promptly forget everything they ever learned.
You have to do it in the dark of night, under cover, while the dog is outside, preferably a few miles away being walked by someone...it's your only chance at success in the show.

We had the second highest score in the class. ;)


Oh you mean the number. It was a 187 which at this point is really very good for us. :)

Oriana, way to go! You are a very young girl to be so smart. CDX legs are very excellent accomplishments, each and every one.

Oh, I forgot to add...I was thumbing through one of my issues of the Golden Retriever News and I saw a picture that looked so familiar. It was the May-June 2009 issue ring a bell.....Lucy?

Good job! :) And I believe Oriana is a very young girl too, right?
