During our down time today at the Obedience Trial, we were sure to check the Best Beloved Books & Collectibles vendor for any novel Maltese themed items. Much to our surprise, there was quite a selection of books to choose from. We went home with a copy of The Maltese Dog: A history of the breed by Virginia T. Leitch. A great find!
Rugby was oddly
distracted by infatuated with another dog (maybe? who knows what caught is eye) early in the day and didn’t qualify in Utility. He managed to earn a 196.5 in Open and lost the run-off for fourth place. After a long nap Rugby woke up just in time for Versatility. He was ON finally and earned a 199 (1st place).
