I am in shock...but it's the good kind :)
Katie went into the Rally Advanced ring for the first time ever in competition today. She had to do a jump which she just recently learned and only does in practice about 50% of the time. If your dog doesn't do the jump you are automatically disqualified. Thankfully Katie picked today as the day she sailed over the jump with ease and immediately after came right back into heal position. She did get distracted a few times on the course, but I was able to regain her attention. Even though we had some problems we did enough things right to qualify. I was so proud of my Katie girl being off leash and sticking with me in such a noisy, crazy place.

Then it was little Louie's turn. He was also a bit more distracted today than yesterday, but he still managed to qualify and get fourth place. Now he just needs one more leg to get his Rally Novice title. I'm sure he will get it soon because he can't stand for his sissy to beat him at anything.

I'm so proud of our baby Louie :)
Once we got home we had a little photo shoot
Katie says "Mom, how do you like this goofy pose?"
Louie says "I can be even goofier than that...see?!?!"
"And by the way Sis...did you notice the bottom row has more ribbons??? Who's row do you think that is?"
No, our Louie doesn't gloat...well maybe just a bit, but thankfully Katie is a good sport and an awesome big sister.
