While the day was sunny and cool, it was a mud fest after several consecutive days of rain. Capra got his first Novice Q!
He was doing a great job indicating, but his first indication was so far away from the rat, I couldn't identify the tube location (far side of the bale) and didn't call it. I had to walk him around the whole course and back to the original spot -- whereupon he sat and grumbled at me, like 'Mom, I already called that one!'
I called rat with less than 5 seconds to go! Very nerve wracking for me, but fun for Capra!
