      Yellow girls made their Open debut this past weekend

      They both did well. Cookie earned an Open B 3rd with a 197 despite needing work on her fronts and finishes. Sass had 2 substantials that kept her out of the ribbons (she was .5 behind the 4th place dog). One was my fault - I had (several) bad dumbbell throws and since we haven't worked the piece of her waiting quietly while the judge retrieves it for a retry, she broke and tried to get it herself. Could have been an NQ but he'd heard me tell someone it was her first time in the ring so just took a substantial (and gave great advice for how to deal with it if it happened again, which is did on the next throw, LOL). She also had a no-sit on one finish due to judge pressure - she swung into heel position and froze like a deer in the headlights staring at the judge like "why is that man standing there looking at me". I know judge pressure is a thing to work on with her (hard to simulate when I am training on my own) but I did have to laugh since this was the final exercise and he'd been watching her the whole time. So 6 points on stuff that we haven't worked on enough but the stuff we have worked she only lost 1.5 points on - without the breaking for the dumbbell between exercises and a with a sit on the finish she would have had a 198.5 and been in a run-off for 2nd with a friend's dog who is working on his OTCH and was 10th at Nationals. Very, very happy with both of them.

      Great work, little girls! Your girls will make their Momma proud, assuming Chloe thinks about those things! I especially like your description of Sass and the judge's facedown.

      We are learning all these things you mentioned in his Attention class and as someone who really knew nothing about obedience (6 months ago I would have had no idea what you were even talking about!), I am even more impressed when people can compete their dogs this way! Congratulations!!
