    DefaultA few lessons in obedience

    We had a breed/obedience show today. Ruby was entered in breed (was RWB) but we always hang out in the obedience area anyways, as that is where all my REAL friends are.

    Anywho. We set up our crate, showed Ruby, and made our way back the obedience.

    I put Ruby in her crate, went to go wash my hands and I come back and she is NOT in her crate. I am FREAKED out by now, and I begin frantically looking for her. Cannot find her at all. Long down is in the ring, my obedience instructor with his golden going for a NOV B leg.

    Well I spotted Ruby. There she was, outside of the ring, behind my instrucors dog, laying down. What the?

    So I go over to her, and grab her. When my teacher comes out of the ring, he tells me that she followed him over, from the other side of the ring and instead of telling his dog to DOWN he used RUBY down. And she stayed LOL

    Long story short, two doors in Ruby's crate, momma only closed one. Bad momma. The ring steward came over and told me to be careful, which I appreciated. I was just happy my lady was doing a long down! That is her nemesis! ;D

    I'm glad Zeke's crate only has ONE door. If that happened with him he'd probably get us a lifetime ban from all AKC activities!!

    Good Ruby!

    I would have been crazy out of my mind. I'm glad you found her and no one was worse for the wear. Congrats on RWB too!

    Congrats on teh RWB!

    How scary that must have been! I'm glad that Ruby had a friend to follow rather than going off in search for you and getting lost!

    OH gosh! What a good dog she was. I actually wished my crate had 2 doors - but maybe not now!
