CongRATulations to me for earning my RATS Barn Hunt Title last Friday! Its been a long road traveled over two and a half years to get the job done. Mom has retired me a few times, and I’ve had so many failures, but Mom refused to completely give up on me.
I finished my RATO, Open Title, in August 2018. In September 2018 I earned one of the needed legs for my Senior Title, in December 2018, the second leg, but then I gave up on it. Mom has been determined to have me finish off my title. I’ve gone to many trials but have not done anything in the ring, so no Q. Recently, Mom found a way to get me motivated. We have practiced with this method for the past month, and tried it at the trial. It worked! I finally got that last leg. Note…the time limit is 3:30. I really pushed it with time!
As for me, I’m super happy to have this project behind me. Whether or not I continue in barn hunt, is still up in the air. I don’t like to work without being paid, and in barn hunt there is no rewarding in the ring which causes me to lose interest in working. For now I’m going to simply enjoy having me RATS Barn Hunt Title.
Mom was so happy that we finally titled, she spoiled me all day on Saturday! We started our day by going to the Three Dog Bakery. I’m the only one of my sisters who had not yet been there. The sign outside on Saturday was perfect for us!
Honestly, the store is overwhelming with all the treats, food, chews, and a lot of other dogs shopping. It’s tough to decide what a girl should get. Mom said I could pick anything in the store. Finally, I decided on a salmon chew. Even though it looks like a rawhide, it is not! It is handmade from wild caught Atlantic salmon, brown rice flour, agar agar, eggs, olive oil, banana powder and pineapple stems. It was super yummy, and I highly recommend these Earth Animal No Hide chews! Mom and I visited Gramma, and I spent a long time working on my yummy chew.
In other Friday trial news, Madison earned another leg towards her RATCH Title, Champion. She now needs two more legs to earn that title. Olivia worked hard and found three of the four rats in each of her searches but no Q’s. We know she will get it next time.
My GBGV Life is happy, so we’re joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
