Rugby was part of the long line of our classmates who earned a title this year (his UD in spring) at the Applewoods party last week. Not all of the new titleholders made it to class, but it was a good showcase of the quality teams that we have the privilege of training with. Keeping with tradition, Rugby was the recipient of a giant stainless steel bowl, a step bigger than the one he got for his CDX and two steps bigger than the CD bowls. He could fit in his prize this year! I had fun lugging him along in the bowl-turned-carriage.
After all the awards had been passed out, Rugby and I took a moment to recap our Orlando experience. We were interrupted by a surprise from the other room. Our school got together to get Rugby and I a graduation gift. Aren't they fabulous? We loved our flowers, vase, dog cookies and cards. I am so happy to be a part of Team Applewoods, and be surrounded by great people and great dogs.
Thank you SO, SO, much to everyone that took part in the surprise!
