on July 14th "Bethena" above on the left... earns her "Companion Dog" title!!!
Hi Bev and Jean-Louis and Madeleine,
Bethena finished her CD today in grand style, with a 189 and a first place under Michael Calhoun at the Lakes Region Kennel Club obedience trial in Hopkinton, NH. Whoo-hoo!!! She is SO smart, novice obedience was really boring her and she has been continuously thinking up bigger and better ways to make it more interesting, which has led to such antics as leaping (albeit very gracefully and with wonderful form) over the ring fence to go in search of something more interesting than the off-lead heel. She will be VERY excited to get into open obedience, where jumping is encouraged and rewarded. When I get a picture, I will send it on....
Diane and Bethena
