GANG (Greyhounds Association of North Georgia) is currently hosting a 5 day Winter Challenge in Calhoun, GA. We attended on Sunday & Monday, and are going back tomorrow. Sunday was Lola's first trial ever, and she did really really well! She was the only basenji in open, and Beck, Field Champion, forfeited Best Of Breed to us. Monday, our second day, Lola again had two great runs as the only open basenji, and then ran against Field Champion Beck in Best of Breed & won!! Most importantly, she had SOOOOO much fun & we can't way to go back tomorrow!
Here are some pictures from Lola's first trial!
Her new coursing blankets are size XS!! Here she is showing off the blue one.
Gotta get that bunny!
Lola tolerates being still long enough for 2 pictures with her ribbon.
This weekend's ribbons.
Uma Rapiti Photography was there, and he has posted the pictures from Sunday, but not Monday yet.
And of course, a typical basenji story from the day.
I noticed a lot of other dog owners clip their ribbons to the dogs' crates to show off what they've accomplished. Monday morning I clipped Sunday's BOB ribbon to Lola's crate. We put her in the crate & left to wander around & watch some other dogs for a bit. As we headed back to the car, it suddenly dawned on me that I shouldn't have left the ribbon on the crate.
Sure enough, we get to the car & Lola has pulled a basenji. She pulled the rosette off of the ribbon & through the bars & into her crate. She left the hanging ribbons completely untouched. Once she got the rosette into the crate, she didn't tear it up or chew it. It was in perfect condition. I think she just wanted to admire it! I was able to reattach it, but I thought it was too funny!
