Day 4: Temperament test

We passed! I'll write about the test in more detail when I get to a real keyboard, since iPhone blogging could send me to the nut house!

It was a rainy, cold morning and I think Phoenix was annoyed at being asked to work on the pouring rain more than anything else. Okay, maybe I shared his feelings! (There is apparently some rule that it has to rain like hell during EVERY Belgian national ever held at Purina Farm.)

He dove into the bucket of rattling rocks like someone might have hidden a steak in it and gave the aggressive stranger a good hard stare and a little posturing.

We tried to watch the herding trials but due to thunder, lightening, rain and wind (and cold, did I mention it's cold?) gave that up and came back to the motel to thaw out.

Obedience is tomorrow morning, or afternoon, as the case may be, then headed home. Really hoping NOT to repeat the 1 a.m. return home like last year's national!


  1. looking forward to hearing more - congratulations!

  2. Amazing that you are blogging on your iPhone! Congratualations!!

  3. Someone needs an IPad to complete her Apple collection! Glad you guys are having a good time even if the weather is not cooperating. Can't wait to hear more Bout the temperament test!

  4. Congratulations on the agility and temperament achievements! Now get home safely -- beat the storms!

  5. Hey at least there is an indoor facility now!
