That Rugby Dog

We are finally getting back into the swing of things after the busy two months we just had.  Rugby and I picked out our next Obedience Trials so he can spend more time in the ring. The excitement of the National Obedience Invitational still hangs in the air. I have revisited our experience a few times for interviews for the Maryland Gazette, who wrote a story about Rugby on the beginning of this month. The story also appeared in the Hometown Annapolis newspaper two weeks later. Last week, I spoke with a writer from our local paper, The Pasadena Voice, who also ran a story about Rugby. Little did I know, the best was yet to come. 

I was introduced to Ruthann McCaulley through a mutual friend. She writes for Front & Finish, THE dog training magazine, and she also competes in Obedience with her own small dogs (Chihuahua and Australian Terrier). She was interested in including Rugby's NOI experience in her column, and I was happy to share it. I am very grateful for the opportunity to tell our story making the front cover was icing on the cake. Thank you so much Ruthann McCaulley, Joanie Carqueville, and Bob Self for making it happen.
