Now this is the little booth where you get your numbers....NUMBERS!!! I got to enter into TWO EVENTS!!!!!!!! The first was Introduction into Quarry which I have done and passed before and it is to learn how to do it and then I got to go into the JUNIOR EVENT !!!!!!!! WHOA!!! now we are talking big time...... This is the beginning of the big enchilada and there is a real Judge and you get graded and everything.....and if you win it gets sent to the AKC!!!!!!!!!!!PL2 thinks you get to add something to your name but we don't know what that is,because we don't really do it for that reason we do it BECAUSE I LOVE TO CHASE THE RATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then you sit and wait for them to call your name.This is a pretty funny area because there are a lot of terriers there ,who are PUMPED UP, and it is a bit noisy with barking and ahem how shall I say,near scuffles.....but not me...I am hearing Archie in my head...deep breathe.....say om to calm your self...stay focused...... This is my earth dog friend and mentor Bella.Some of you may know of her from the WFT email network..her and her Mom Lucia.She is on the last leg of her SENIOR EARTH DOG title!!! WHOA.......plus she is a show dog(that is why her coat looks so lovely) I am sitting close by( but not too close and we ahem like to sparr....)
WE ARE COMING OUT!!! I DID IT!! Pretty fast too!! I was a bit hesitant at first going into the tunnel because I heard PL1+2 talking about how I had gained two pounds this winter and what if I got stuck in the tunnel??!! I WOULD BE MORTIFIED
Now ...see the green area past the blue area???That is where I had to go the next time..FOR THE JUNIOR LEVEL........ We didn't get any pictures of this event but I can tell you about it....The Judge gave us directions,and when it was my turn PL2 put me down at the beginning and we had to stand there a minute(OM OM OMMMMMM) and then PL2 could only say one thing.....and you know what it was....3 magic words...GO TO GROUND AGGIE and off I went...Straight into that tunnel...and remember my stealth bomber secret technique? I employed it again,,,,quietly sneaking up to those suckers....UNTIL I GOT THERE( time.....30 seconds....) then after another 30 seconds........I did what I was supposed to do...........AND PASSED THE TEST!!!!!! I did what you are supposed to do pass!!!!!The Judge said I was a scrappy little fighter( Archie agrees....)
As for Archie?????
