Obedience outing

I went to another obedience trial this morning. It was so boring. We had to wait for hours and hours until our turn. By that point, I didn't much care.

Kay tried to get me revved up, but to tell the truth, I wasn't feeling all that great.

I think I might have picked up something toxic last week when Gracie pushed me into the Cooks River. It's so polluted that you aren't supposed to eat the fish from it - and you sure aren't supposed to be swimming in it.

I was just sniffing around the edge, as I always do, when a bouncing Gracie careened into me and knocked me over the edge. It was a long drop down, lucky the tide was in so I splashed in the water instead of smashing into the mud.

Neil had to climb down a ladder and try to haul me six feet back up to the bank, while not falling in himself. Thanks a lot, Gracie.

Anyway, the point was that I didn't do very well in the ring - we actually failed big time evidently. Kay was not very impressed. I guess it's back to the practice ring for me.


  1. It doesn't sound like you're having a great day, Ruby! Hopefully tomorrow will be better for you! Geez, why the heck did Gracie push you?!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. Sorry to hear you are under the weather, its not nice when you feel ill. Mind you I am not surprised if Gracie pushed you in!!! I hope you don't have an ear infection like me! get mom to keep an eye on them, that water could have gone right inside!!.
    See Yea George xxxx

  3. Ruby, you are a winner in our book!
    We hope you feel better soon!

  4. Gosh Ruby..that was some experience thanks to Gracie. We are glad the tide was in.

    Hope you are feeling better by now? Take care.
