It has been a while since we have checked in but we are glad we poked around today because we were able to be inspired by Zeus and reminded of Chili Dawg, both of whom are incredible dogs with incredible families.
With Bart’s big cover debut behind him, we are gearing up for hunting season and a new opportunity for Bart to have some fun in the field. The American Kennel Club has recently allowed pointing dogs such as Bart to participate in retriever events and we are entered in our first retrieving hunt test in just a few weeks. Bart is like, “Don’t sweat it, Mom! I got this!” while I am nervous that we will do something stupid since we have never done this and have only watched this type of test on the internet. But, Bart & I have failed and succeeded more times together than I can count so this will be another one or the other (hopefully we will pass and it will be a success). If not, I am sure we will have fun and there will be folks whose jaws will drop when they see this 3-legged kid rocket off to retrieve his prize. Bart is one of the zippiest retrieving dogs and a pure joy to watch work the field.
Wish us luck as we continue on this journey of fun as we try (again) something we have never done before!
