The Obedience Adventures of Brego (the Aragon “honorary” dog) and Becca

Brego added two performance titles to the end of his name--his Beginner Novice title in 3 straight trials and his CD title in 3 straight all-breed trials including two High Scoring Hound awards and two second and one third placements.  The last 2 trials (Valley Hills Obedience Club) included very challenging weather for a Greyhound—it was rainy and cold the first day, 37 degrees with blustery rain and the second day there was frost on the ground—of course, both ring times were 8 AM!!! By the second day the ring was nothing but mud and the club laid down sawdust over most of the ring. Definitely not something we had trained for. However both days he willing lay on the ground for the required 3 minutes.  He performed like a real trooper and now is called GCH Aroi Aryal Remarkable BN CD !!

Becca was entered in Graduate Novice at the Valley Hills Trials as well. She came so close both days. The first day she didn't drop in the rain. She was in good company as neither would Darby nor Echo . The second day a low flying jet flew overhead when she was called, with the noise she missed the command.  Next time for sure!!!
