Lure Coursing MATCH
I did NOT PASS :-(
Who knew 600 yards was sooooo long? BOL! I did the coursing fun at the Hair of the Dog and I LOVE it but I fink that was a mini track to tease us and let us fink we can all run like the wind! Actchewally, I had LOADS of FUN which Ma sez is the main thing with activities for me... but I really wanted a ribbon.
So we got there and I was checked for soundness and Ma got a SUPER STAR bracelet... I was all set to run. I was number 8 and they were on 4... I was winnying and shaking and RARIN' TO GO!!!
Ma had to get me away from the course so I could calm down a second (Maybe this was my downfall? or maybe 'cuz I hadn't ever practiced on the big course? And then... I was up.
TALLY-Hooooooo and off I went. Down the stretach and thru the first turn and then I was running into the sun. Ma thinks I lost the bag... I looked up and saw Ma and Da so I ran over to them. They stopped the bags and so when I got back on course, they were just there and moving sooooo slow. I pointed them and stalked them. Since they were moving slow, I moved slow to sneak up on them BOL... Ma and Da were telling me to get 'em and take 'em but I was locked on point. Everyone was impressed with my point BOL and then they called time. boooooo. I had taken too long getting back on track and stalking that I didnt finish in time to PASS and get a ribbon. I hope I didnt disappoint Ma and Da. They said I was a good girl and had fun and then we took a walk near this lake, took some pitchahs and went home.
I fink I'm going to go to the next practice so I can get be really ready next time there is a MATCH or maybe an actual CAT!!!
