Mutt Strutt Report

Saturday was a big day for Duncan. There were some minor scheduling problems, the biggest one being that no one informed our group that our demo time had been moved from 10:00 to 11:30. So, to occupy our time, Duncan and I participated in the Mutt Strutt dog walk. Duncan made lots of new friends, one in particular. According to the chat I had with Barney’s mom, Duncan and Barney have identical personalities. No wonder they hit it off so well.

The weather warmed up pretty quickly, so after the walk, we stopped for a water break.

John came out to watch Duncan perform and to tape the freestyle routines. I haven’t pulled the video off the camera yet, but when I do, I’ll post it.

Even though Duncan was hot and tired, he still performed beautifully. Never underestimate the power of the hotdog. And isn’t he so handsome in his red bow tie?

The team routine went fairly well, I think. Of course, I was paying attention to Duncan and no one else, so I really don’t know. Guess I’ll find out when I watch the video.

After the Mutt Strutt, Mary and I went back to my place to do some cropping. Before we went to get lunch, though, Mary gave me this awesome t-shirt that she bought for me. If you can’t read it, it says “As a matter of fact, the world does revolve around my dog.” Isn’t it great? And so true…

After lunch, we went for a stroll in the woods. The dogs found something at the pond that they’d never seen before. Whoever said turtles were slow obviously never saw one being followed by two interested dogs. When that turtle decided to head for the pond, it used some serious speed.

To thank Mary for coming out and taking so many pictures of his handsome self, Duncan allowed her to pose with him.

After that, it was time for Reyna to show off a bit.

Reyna said that her hips might be toast, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still put Duncan in his place!

Back in the yard, the dogs got to have some more play time.

After Mary and I watched "My Blue Heaven" and cropped for a while, everyone got to have a few treats.

And finally, at the end of a very successful day, Duncan was one pooped pup.

Excellent job on the blog covering Saturday's activities. I feel so special - I made the blog with two pictures. Great selection of photos. I love the one of Reyna in the woods looking through the trees - I'd already picked that one out when I viewed the Snapfish posting. And the wrestling and the turtle and the treats and .... :-) Mary
