Three Cheers for Louie's Third Rally Obedience Excellent Qualification & New Title!!!

Early yesterday morning, Gary, Katie, Louie and I drove three hours to Paragould Arkansas so that Louie and I could participate in a Rally Obedience competition. I am always nervous at these shows, but the fact that we had to do six hours of driving for just a few minutes in the ring made me more nervous than usual. Although Louie was a bit distracted and slow to respond a few times, overall I think he did very well. His tail was wagging the entire time and when he got distracted he was able to get back on track. We got our third green qualifying ribbon in Rally Obedience Excellent along with a blue first place ribbon. Best of all Louie earned his Rally Obedience Excellent title. He is now officially: Wilbon's What a Wonderful World RE CGC TDI. We are as proud as can be :-)

On the way home we took a break near some rice fields.

Katie and Louie enjoyed splashing around in some puddles from the big storms we had Friday night.

What excellent news! Wow, I don't think I could ever stay calm in the car for 6 hours before a trial. Good for you and congrats!
