Let's go home!
Spencer made his Graduate Novice debut today. He had Q going right up until the last exercise - but he walked over the broad jump. It was a good learning experience for me - the rules say that the dog must be at least 8 feet from the jump, and that is where the judge draws a line for the exhibitor. I left Spencer at the line but what I should have done was put him another four feet or so back. Spence has a bum knee and he really only pushes off his good knee. If I gave him a bit more room, I hope having more running room would help him get over.
Glad I signed him up for a show in a couple of weeks!
