Pride of place has to be given though to the fabulous Oliver as Monique writes the following:- “Even though it was 95 degrees at the Performance Scent Dog trial yesterday in Littleton, MA, Oliver qualified in 2 classes and earned 1st place ribbons: Excellent Buildings & Excellent Distance (metallic level)! The judges were impressed with his strong work ethic. That’s my boy!
I was especially excited about him earning his Excellent Building leg. The 2 contiguous rooms were overflowing wit…h furniture and storage material, so it was difficult. After locating 2 hides and with 30 seconds left to go, Oliver sort of alerted near the door and a tall plastic container unit. Not convinced it was an alert on a scented hide, I moved him around the room while he barked at me. With a few seconds left, I brought him back to the area of interest and he sniffed around but didn’t give me a convincing alert, so I called finish thinking we had blown it. Nope. I was correct in not calling it and the judge told me afterwards that she thought he was simply waiting to leave b/c he had finished searching. Whew.”
Beauty and brains, Glen of Imaal Terriers have them both!
