Priceless!

Entry fee: $25.00

Gas to drive to trial: $2.69/gallon

Returning after group exercises and finding your dog exactly where you left him: PRICELESS!

Phoenix did a lovely job at the Hawkeye Kennel Club trial today for his first CDX leg. His individual exercises were okay and the thing I'm most proud of were his sits and downs. He didn't scoot on the sit and had minimal paw fidgeting. He was solid on his down, which was our big sticking point earlier this year. 

The icing on the cake was our 195.5 was good enough for 4th place. The silly boy hit ALL of his finishes, which is unheard of for us. Fronts are now apparently a mystery. 

Overall, a splendid day and I'm VERY proud of my skinny little dog.
