Thursday evening it was time for the annual dinner meeting of The Springfield Dog Training Club. I've been a member for nine years now, since Samba and I took our first class.
A few years ago, as a fund raiser, the club sold bricks. We bought one and had Bentley's name put on it, since he was our first PWD and is the reason I'm so involved with the breed.
Inside we checked out the agility board.....
and the obedience and rally board.
Then we looked at the title board. This lists the titles earned by club members and it's listed by breed.
Look at this! The first ever Portuguese Water Dog to earn a title for the club is non other than Fudge. The pictures are generic ones supplied by the AKC, but Fudge and I have our name at the top of the PWD list and with any luck, we'll add a few more Legacy dogs to the list
Then it was time for dinner, but Rob was busy making friends with this little girl. She's a long haired Chihuahua and was feeling a little overwhelmed. When Rob picked her up, she snuggled into his arms and went to sleep.
Then after dinner, it was my turn. This is a Papillon pup who wasn't a bit sleepy. She was in licking mode and as we passed her from table to table, she happily kissed us and chewed on ears and fingers.
We had to leave before the meeting was over because Samba can't wait more than two or three hours to go out. We arrived home and found no accidents. So it was a good night.
