We're All Wet

Last night, I PASSED my CGC Evaluator test! As soon as my kit comes in, I will officially be able to test dogs for their CGC test, as well as instruct classes! This is a HUGE yay to me! I've been planning on this since before I got Ferguson...I'm so glad I was able to reach my goals!

New goals are popping up all over the place though, regarding how I'll proceed with this certification. Will update with a proposal for work later on...

To celebrate success, Eric and I took Ferguson to Sugarloaf Mountain for what we thought was a 2.5 mile hike. As you can see from the picture, Ferguson really seemed to enjoy himself. He was much more fit-acting than myself, actually trotting alongside Eric at a nice pace (unlike me, who dragged behind with heavy breaths). Ferg is a dog that has no trouble lagging/telling you he's tired, so I know he was really enjoying himself! We were only afraid that he would get overheated and exhaust himself.

Yet, our fears were put to rest when the sky turned into this:

Shortly after, then we looked like this:

Ohhh well. We'll be sure to check the weather next time...

In the meantime, we'll be looking forward to getting my kit in the mail to take my next step into the world of dog training ^_^.

That's really cool that you're an evaluator now! Ahh, hiking in the rain, a summer tradition.
