Pixel earned her first little title today and is officially "Cornerstone's On Second Thought CGN"
She did really well in the test overall- good enough to pass anyway! She did have a few iffy moments- during the walking through a crowd exercise she jumped up to say hello, but got off as soon as I asked. She also was a little nervous about being brushed by a stranger. At the demo we did a few months ago she did this on a table and was better so I think it was a combination of the man bending over her and being a little nervous in a new place. She did recover though and was fine with him but took a few seconds to stand still. The rest of the test she did really well at- even the 3 minutes with me out of sight!
I don't put much stock in the test to be honest-but thought it would be a good opportunity to get her out in a new place, and try new things. I am proud of her for being able to do all the stations succesfully- she is the only one of my dogs to get this (not that I've tried with the others) I don't honestly think that Wicca would pass. :o) She doesn't listen very well sometimes!
The best part of the day came later- Jolene and I drove around and played tourist even though I had lived in the area towns for many years when I was going to school. We had lots of fun taking photos, and goofing around.
Her dog Kort did really well, and aced the part we were concerned about! He didn't pass though, as he thought the distraction dog for the "pass the strange dog" test was pretty good looking. :o) It was a good try though, and Kort has come such a long way. Next time he'll be ready!
I took LOTS of photos...mostly of Kort. Doesn't Kort look like Lassie? Seriously. He is so handsome.
