1st Time at PetnYou Carnival

Me chit-chatting with Crumbs owner while
those two monkeys were looking half-dead...

Had a fun time at the PetnYou Carnival yesterday. Amber & Faith registered for the OB challenge Competition the week before the carnival. But unfortunately, we thought that the competition starts later about nine something but the person who was incharged called & told us that it was starting now which was 8am. We were still halfway there when she called up. My mum speeded her way & took the wrong turn and also caused an accident behind her car. The car behind her tried to overtake her but my mum was concentrating on getting to the carnival as fast as possible and didn't see the car on her right. Well, it was partly that person's fault too! Who asked him to try and overtake her?

Anyway, we finally made it but we're too late f
or the Pre-Novice competition. No trophy for Faith, poor thing...When it was Amber's time for the Novice Competition, she did pretty well infact better than those who were already in Intermediate who also joined for Novice too. Unfortunately another sad news, she failed it because she ran towards my mum & Faith during recall. Sigh...She got fourth placing for it. My Amber & I were candidates Number 8. Amber got the highest marks for 'Heel Free'. You can see in the picture on the right & compare the marks she & others got. Click to largen it.

Surprisingly, Faith was more half-dead than Amber when she actually
didn't do anything the whole time there!

Amber & Faith manage to join a
game which was 'The Longest Stay'. It was too hot by that time, so they both couldn't take it & walked off from the ring. Got consolation prizes though from participating. Amber also joined the Basic Jumpers Agility but did badly in it. Also could have been caused by the heat from the sun, and it was also a different environment & the equipments were different too...

It was getting hotter & hotter by the minute & so we decided to make a move. When we reached home, I managed to give our two dogs a wash before their training at South City Plaza. What a hassle day! Hehehehe...

Faith, you're in a weird position...
Wonder what ya doing?

That's Arun the Miniature Schnauzer & her daddy...

Crumbs, are you camera shy?

Amber's recall nowadays is damn good! She sometimes run or trots towards me...I think it was just too hot and so she decided to go back under the shade. Oh well...
