I qualified for Earthdog!

Here I am rarin' to get at the rats. I jumped at this rubber rat on the table all day on Saturday, by Sunday they decided to move it but I remembered and looked all around the table all day for it!

Anyhoo, we went to this Earthdog trial in the Poconos last weekend. I was very excited to be in the car again, AND we stayed in a hotel! I slept in the bed, like usual, cause I wanted to be sure that Ingrid and Tyler felt at home. I have to take care of them, you know.
The first day, Saturday, they had me entered in Junior Earthdog, but I didn't qualify cause I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do! The next day I did Introduction to Quarry and I qualified with flying colors! I got a toy as a prize! I also got a ribbon, and Ingrid and Tyler sure made a fuss over that. Whatever.
I tried the Junior Earthdog again on Sunday right after the IQ, but success didn't follow me. I didn't qualify for that, I guess cause I didn't feel like staying in the hole! Once I decided to do it, I started working that rat in 4 seconds flat. They said I'll be one heck of an earthdog with some practice. What's the big deal? It's what I'm supposed to do!
