    DefaultSHAMROCK EARNS HIS UDX!!!!

    Yesterday was a terrific day for my husband, Terry, and Shamrock our seven year old yellow lab, but it didn't start out that way.
    The show we were going to was just under a two hour drive and based on the number of dogs showing and his number, I had estimated when we should leave our house. Instead we were about 30 minutes behind time. If Shamrock Q's in both Open and Utility, its his UDX.
    When we got to the show site, Terry was yakking with a friend and I thought maybe I'll just see where they are in open. YIKES - already past his number and only about 3 dogs to go. The stewards were very nice - let him show last and even though Shamrock's drop on recall was a little late, he Q'd in Open. Now only Utility.
    After waiting what seemed like forever - into the ring they go. I told Terry - only think about one exercise at a time. You know he can do it. Don't think about the end - take a breath. Good luck. GoOuts were A-OK. Stand for exam-done. Glove 2 - done. And then articles. I could see he picked up the correct one, but I didn't see Shamrock drop it. Then he picked up the correct one again and headed for Terry and then for some reason just stopped. Judge was nicely patient. Shamrock finally came to front and Article 1-done. Article 2 - out and back - no drama. Heeling/signals-done. Q and UDX!!!
    I am so proud of both of them. This is really Terry's Novice A dog although he did show him in Novice B for his CD because I misunderstood the determination of what a Novice A dog is and our other lab had already earned his CD.
    After we got home - we celebrated. We didn't go back today - deciding to really enjoy the moment. I think the OTCH bug has bitten Terry though, so I foresee many more shows in our future.
