The Champions!

Last night was the puppy school graduation test, and guess who came home with a first place trophy? You guessed it! The champions of puppy school were Jim and Jena! FIRST PLACE! The test included heeling, sitting, standing for inspection, come, sit-stay, and down-stay. Jena did pretty well at heeling and sitting. She failed "standing for inspection" (jumping up on the instructor got her a BIG FAT ZERO). She lost some points in "come." She got another zero at the one minute long sit-stay (she didn't stay). I thought she was going to come in last place... BUT she was the only dog to pass the three minute long down-stay. That's 60 BIG POINTS!

It was as if Jena knew that she won. She was excited and uncontrollable for the rest of the evening... barking, jumping up, and just being the Jena-bug that she is... It's a good thing that the instructor didn't see that or he would have taken the trophy back. Hahaha...

So Jim, how do you and Jena feel about being puppy school champions?

LOL!!! Congratulations Jim and Jena!!! From what you have been telling me, Jim must have worked really hard with her over the weekend. I am sure glad all his hard work and competative spirit paid off. :)
