Meg was always the smallest in that litter and has seemed to 'fly under the radar' up till this point in her life. Her brother Utin grabbed my attention early when I started some obedience work with him and See stormed into the limelight last fall being the youngest dog to make our 'A' string last year.
Meg just kicked around learning what there was to be learned and biding her time.
Last spring Richard tossed her in lead one day when he was having some issues with another leader and gave her a nice report, but I just seemed to keep forgetting to try her in lead myself.
My friends Kim and Kelly (the human ones) were asking about her in an email the other day and I got thinking "Yeah, what about Meg??"
So this morning I finally remembered to try the little white dog (she is actually the only truly white dog in our yard)in lead.
The short of it - she ROCKED!!!
She lined out the team, drove hard, took commanda - everything you could ask for in a lead dog. I stopped a few miles into the run just to go up front and give her some attention.
"It's about time you noticed", she said.
I apologized for taking so long to do so.
|Please excuse the peeling on her little red nose, she got a bit of sunburn!|
It won't happen again, I assure you!
Go Meg Go!!
