This is my Noble Canine pose...
Doesn't she look proud? She should - she earned a 3rd place in the Puppy Retriever Class, with a respectable score of 46/60.
I think she's smiling in this picture!
If I'd not made a mistake at the water retrieve, it would have been 2nd place. I think Quincy forgives me but, just in case, I've made her a conciliatory dinner of scrambled pheasant eggs and pasta.
We move up to the Open class, and will compete again in July. Quincy has plenty of time to train me between now and then.
