I'm gonna be a C.A.T.??!!
no.... I'm going to take a CAT! BOL
So, you know ever since the Hair of the Dog, there has been a lot of talk lately about the CAT (Coursing Ability Test). Ma found out you need 3 legs under 2 different judges to get your title. Well, what the heck does that mean for me?
YOU GOT IT... Ma's applied for my PAL (Purebred Alternative Listing) from the AKC (and she and Da even have a long name picked out for me: "What's the problem, June?" they say it's from a Jamaican radio commercial. whatevs...)
and I am going to be eligible to compete for titles...not just like lure coursing, either... If I get my act together, she's gonna try me in Rally too!
But back to CATs...
Ma's been scouring the AKC website for a place to let me fly but up until now was disappointed that there were no local events in NJ and then last week, Auntie Linda sent a post from an agility forum all about an upcoming weekend IN NEW JERSEY!
Since there has been enough interest there will be testing done in Colts Neck NJ. on Sept 17-18. Dogs over 12" run 600yards. It is pass or fail. Dogs must complete the course with enthusiasm and without interuption within the maximum time for the course. I think I can do that!
It will be 4 events wif the peeps I ran wif at the 5k and because there's 2 days/4 events there's a good chance I will get 3 Q's/orange ribbons and get my title!!! I am so excited. I even posed nice for the pitchers she had to take for my PAL (They need visual proof I'm a real Weimie since we never getted my papers!) Now ma's new thing she's bin sayin' since me n Haze are rescued Weims who are going to be "officially" competing...
There's no Q like a RES-Q
