Pip the Birding Dog isn't much into girlie stuff in the stereotypical sense. She is an outdoor kind of dog.
But every now and then, she has to get groomed or her fur gets too matted for me to manage. And yesterday was the day that happened.
The bow on her head was actually rather pretty, but Pip did not approve. Fortunately, she managed to forget all about it when she went outside.
Pip has been going to obedience class at the Twin Ports Dog Training Club, and last night was the final session, a mock obedience trial. Pip did not sit once when I stopped on heel, and she lagged behind a few times. She also broke from the long sit-stay. But she was great for the stand-for-examination and the long down-stay, and ended up getting First Place!
That was a very nice end to a long day!
