And the word of the week is – “mischief”. I can’t believe it’s week 10 already of the #PBSG #52 Snapshots of Life Photo Challenge! Mom says the mischief is definitely in my eyes and about to happen in this photo! I am innocent and have no idea what she is talking about!
I have a couple other things important and exciting items I wanted to mention on my post today.
First of all, huge GBGV hugs and thank yous to everyone who took their time to nominate My GBGV Life for a Nose to Nose Award! I couldn’t believe my nose when I saw my blog is one of the four finalists for Best Dog Blog. What a huge honor to be a finalist as there are so many wonderful blogs out there! Just being a finalist is a win for us! Thank you to my family, friends, fans, and the judging team at BlogPaws! A huge congratulations to all the other finalists in all the categories as well!
You may recall, we don’t do New Years Resolutions at my house, but we usually have goals to reach during the year. For 2015, Mom, Bailie, and I set the goal of getting some titles in our sports. I wanted to let you all know where we are at with the goals at this point.
For nose work, we have our ORT (odor recognition test) spots lined up for April 19th. I will be trying for clove, Bailie will be working on getting anise, and clove as well. If we can pass these, then we are all done with ORT’s and can focus strictly on competitions. Bailie and I both have our names in for the Level One Element Specialty Trials on May 2nd and 3rd, but we have not yet heard if either of us got a spot. There were well over 200 entries for just 120 spots, so we have our paws crossed tightly.
You may remember, Bailie got her tracking certification in January, so she can now take her TD (tracking dog) test. She applied and got into a test on March 15th, so she and Mom have been busy practicing. We all have our paws crossed she passes the test and gets her first title! Please say a prayer on the morning of the 15th that no squirrels or wabbits cross her track because it would be the end of her title hopes on that day! Bailie loves to track and is really good, but she may prefer getting into mischief if the opportunity arises.
