Interests
So I wanted to wait til I could get some photos and such, but I'm too excited to not update everyone. 

Today Ender went to his very first dog show! 
He showed in two separate Rally Novice B trials today, and I couldn't be more proud of him. He was relaxed and confident in the trial environment and perky and attentive in the ring. We still have a lot of work to do, but he has come a LONG way from his days of pulling in a gentle leader til his face scarred and lunging at strangers and other dogs from 50 feet away. 

In the first trial he qualified with a score of 95 / 100 with a third place (in a class of about 15 dogs)! The second trial he qualified with a score of 92 / 100 (Rika made a silly mistake about where the signs go and lost us quite a few points) and was just two dogs away from the ribbons. More than I ever could have hoped for his first trial (and Rika's first trial in about 4 years time)!
That's two legs in one day! Just one more to go for our title!

So so so proud of my little Caribbean nubbin dog! <3
