Maizie got her RATNX today!

She did it! And she had a lot of fun in the process. She was proud as a peacock today with all the cheers from me, the judge, and her barn hunt friends.

She placed 1st 9 times, but today her winning streak came to an end--she was beaten by 10 seconds by a very good Airedale, so she came in 2nd.

They were out of title ribbons, which is pretty annoying, because I had planned on this being Maizie's swan song! Maybe I can get them to mail it to us.

Thank you, Beaches, Claire, and Streetcar! :hug:
Thank you so much, Muggles, Caroline, Skylar, and PB!

In the "B" classes, all sizes of dog are judged together (small, medium, and large), so it's extra special that she had so many wins. Of course, I wish we could have finished with that last win (the OCD part of me), but it's okay ;)

We may continue in barn hunt at a later time, but we're definitely taking a break! It's such a fun and positive sport. I urge everyone to at least try it if you have it nearby.

Thank you so much, Skylar. I definitely want to try scent work with Maiz, and probably Frosty too!

Thank you, Stormee and Click!
Thanks, Charmed :D Wow, that's quite impressive instinct your Airedale had! If Maizie had to be beaten, I'm glad it was by a terrier :)

Have you done the Herding Instinct test with the spoos? I watched my friend take a herding lesson with her Berger Picard and it was pretty neat. I want to do the Farm Dog certification with mine if it ever comes within reasonable driving distance.
Thanks, Streetcar! You've got a few trial locations about an hour away from you. Might be fun for Ollie to try since he has a good nose :D We should go to a dog event together sometime :)
