i went to trial one of my GSD's one time..drove a few hundred miles to get in one last title before the winter hit..willie 'no hope' pope was the judge..
i confidently got my dog out..walked up..checked in..approached the flag..told the dog to start..he started to take up scent just before the flag as he should..then..as he got right up with the flag..he stopped and promptly lifted his leg...ZEEEERO! as willie said..'exercise finished' while he put the big zero on my sheet..i asked him to see it..took his pencil and added two eyes a nose and a smile...LOL he just shook his head and laughed..
now..had i determined my self worth by whats at the end of my leash..i may have actually been pretty angry about it..but..i just smiled and figured it wasn't our day..we did go out and really shine in obedience and bitework though
