Ms Ruby Underfoot, CGC !!! :confetti:

We went to Splash Dogs in Chula Vista (southern California)/WAGS and roasted in the heat.... but... after many laps around the parking lot, we passed the CGC! I told them signing up that I fully expected to fail the first two points due to propeller butt syndrome and actually we did fail the 2nd point on the first pass. But as the final exercise, she asked to see if Ruby would hold a sit to be petted again, and she did! (even offered to shake LOL).

I was told by some APBT people that I should have listed her as APBT for the sake of the test but I did 'pit bull mix' - I think that should count, I hope?!?

They complimented me for having put so much work into my 'pit bull' when so many do not, and we got a major compliment on Ruby's relaxed down on the supervised separation. Yeah, baby! I intended to have this done a year ago..... and am just so proud of my good girl!!

Ruby bombed on the lure coursing tho - :crazy2: She loves her flirt pole but only ran the straight of the track and then wandered off to sniff the fence. Turkey butt - totally surprised me.
Ruby Underfoot, CGC
