1st title on my 5th birthday at most scenic grounds
Huge grounds to explore and plenty of smells to figure out. First stop was the paddocks where several horses were sunning themselves. When you are standing next to Mr Horse, you feel really small. After awhile, you’ll develop a stiff neck from staring at him for too long. Wished I had legs like that … long, lean and muscular. Then I’ll be able to take part in the greyhound races at the track. Mr Owner mentioned that he was born in the Year of the Horse but he doesn’t look anything like these handsome fellas.
You can always count on Russell the JRT to create some ruckus … he broke free from his master, headed straight for the paddocks and went into play mode with the horses. Had our owners worried sick as he was weaving and hanging around Mr Horse’s hind legs. I told them not to sweat as the worst thing that could happen is for Mr Horse to kick some sense into him. Fortunately, the horses were well trained and conditioned, even in the presence of dogs, and didn’t pay much attention to him.
Time to earn some kibble at the agility ring. For once, we didn’t have to put up with crammed and stuffy indoor halls or smallish outdoor rings. With no restrictions to size, the courses were well spread out which is suited for fast and large dogs as well. No worries bout having to slam on the brake pads too much. Mr Owner only had to watch my inconsistent contacts at the dogwalk, which was a 50-50 thingy.
Night ended up with Merdeka Day fireworks ... how appropriate, a number of milestones were achieved on that day.
