Gracie's first trial

Gracie entered her first obedience trial on Saturday evening.
She did really well and got a qualifying score (and ribbon which she is modeling here).

She got a score of 94 out of 100.
The judge said the dog went really well, but it was Kay's sloppy
handling that lost most of the points - ha!

Two more of these certificates and Gracie will have her Community Companion Dog (CCD) title!

I, ahem, unfortunately bombed out of my class. The Open class is MUCH more difficult than the CCD ring and although I started out really well, I lost concentration after awhile :(

Lucky Gracie was there to bring home a win for Team Airedale.


  1. Congratulations Gracie! What a smart girl you are.
    Ruby perhaps you could restart your class?

    Have a great weekend

    Love ya lots,

  3. Well done, Gracie! Keep training your mom; she just needs a little more confidence in the ring.

  4. Way to go!

    Stop on by for a visit!

  5. Gracie,
    Those ribbons are looking really good on you!

    Congratulations. You'll have your CCD paperwork soon!

  6. WOW! Congrats to Gracie. Ruby dear, you are such an over-achiever, don't you know you can get a free pass once in awhile?! We love ya (& Kay!!)

  7. Way to go, Gracie!! I bet your mama, Ruby, is so proud!! You two are both so gorgeous and talented! It must run in the family... hehehe
