Tripp-year Two

Since Trippy has aged out of the puppy forum it's time to start him a new thread. The squirrels are in over drive, and the dogs are always on the alert in case one decides to fall from the sky. Today I think Tripp thought he could reach far enough up the tree to catch one.

Love that photo, with the slight head tilt, he's a gorgeous boy!

We had our Nosework class tonight. It's amazing to me how he does as well as the more experienced dogs. Our instructor made allowances when we first joined this class, it is the competition class. But Tripp now just finds the hides like all the other dogs. We have obedience Friday night, and have a UKC Nosework trial this weekend so will miss our Sunday agility. Tripp is only entered in the PT Novice, if he passes that test we are entered in Novice Containers. Tugg is entered in all four elements in Advanced. Hopefully he can earn a couple of those titles.

he is very clever and very determined. If he had thumbs I'd be big trouble.

We spent the morning at a UKC Nosework Trial. My husband and Tugg earned their Advanced Container and Advanced Exterior titles, with very respectable times. I only entered Tripp in Novice Containers, he had to pass his PT test in Novice before we could trial, he passed it, he was very distracted, but got his act together. So on to the actual searches, he passed both, the first one he was still a little distracted, but the second search was very nice. So now he has his UKC NC title. Tomorrow we go back, if my husband and Tugg pass one search in Vehicles and Interior they will have earned their UKC AN title. Tripp isn't entered in anything tomorrow, but will go along for the ride. It's my birthday today, and my husband and one of our instructors surprised me with a birthday cake. It was a very nice day.
