Bellatak's Dash of Holiday Cheer RN TDI CGC

That is right, Dasher qualified today and earned his Rally Novice title!!! If that wasn't amazing enough. In a huge trial- this is a 4 day cluster (Rally was 4 hours behind so we had to wait all day) Dash scored a 99 and tied for first place again even competing in the B class- because of Dora and Belle's titles with me. He ended up going second but I am so very proud. Everyone was commenting on him and how wonderful of a heeling dog he is.

The crazy thing happened today that is making me think I am not going to put up with my neighbors... While Dash and I were in the ring. Two dogs ring side got into a fight- AKC reps had to come and there was blood. Mind you these are obedience dogs (okay not saying anything about conformation people!) who are usually very well trained. A Golden jumped on a Boxer and there was blood. Dash is a heck of a confident talk to trust mommy and keep heeling! In rally, you are allowed to talk so I just said "uh oh" the same sound we were doing for therapy dog and his tail went right back up. I feel horrible for the Boxer as this was the lady's first show and I talked to her for awhile (first it is that far behind and then her dog get's attacked). I have never seen a dog attacked at a dog show so this was shocking to me. I was very happy as soon as we were out of the ring, Dasher was pulling me to go get his jackpot treat and forgot about it.

Okay and the sugar on the cake- the people I sat with (everyone I knew wasn't doing obedience today- there is herding, agility, flyball, breed, etc- an amazing venue) were so happy, Dash beat out a professional obedience trainer with all of his goldens!!! <BG> Watch out for those tiny dogs especially the ones who don't take their eyes off their mama!

Okay horrible pic but the building was clearing out and everyone was going to the group rings by the time we got done. And they didn't even give title rosettes

Amanda & Dash (who has his mouthful with his antler and smelly bullystick!)
