Luigi’s RN - 03-14-09

Luigi Schwarzmann finished his third Rally Novice leg at the Fort Lauderdale Dog Show and Trial with a 95 and a 3rd place.  This was no foo-foo course.  This judge set the course like a good novel would read.  Lots of twists, turns, and challenges to face.  The grand finale exercise was the one Luigi and I had been practicing ad nauseum, call front – 1, 2 and 3 steps backward.  We also practiced the swing finish to the point where Luigi nearly forgot the regular ol’ heel finish, so we had to redo the call front, finish right exercise.  Afterwards, Rose was nearby and snapped some pictures for us.  Thank you Rose!   All in all, Luigi and I walked away having had a good time.

About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
