Had a wonderful time with friends. Got to watch some beautiful dogs
work in obedience and rally. Best of Breed is always a beautiful
sight, the bag pipes playing bring tears to your eyes and goosebumps.
The Rustic Boys had a very nice showing (Buzzy couldn't play in
the Golden games, but went to support all his friends and brothers).
Ernie earned his 2nd RE leg. Put in a nice performance in Utility
B (didn't Q) and didn't get any zoomies, that's always a plus. Stormy

to jump up and say "Hi Mom" and got to sniff some girl butts on the
