Monday 13 August 2012: So Scrumptious You Could Eat Him...
Other times I probably just want to kill him....
A day of chilling out for the boys today. It was Cedar's first heelwork to music competition yesterday and he was a superstar. Very proud of my baby, it's a voyage of discovery for us both. He's my first gsp and works very differently to the Bernese and well......Drake.....Drake is Drake and so completely different to any other dog he can't be compared! But both Drake (when he decides he'll work) and Teal don't need to do much before a competition in case the battery power runs out. Cedar needs a full day of activity the day before and lots before he goes in the ring.
The other two also took part. Drake I enter for entertainment value....and entertaining he was.....the pair of us were like a Benny Hill sketch.
Teal didn't get in the ring until late on and by that time was having a bit of a Diva strop and only wanted to do what she wanted....oh well, she'll be ten years old in a few days time....she can be all the Diva she wants.
Cedar fifth in his class, Teal sixth and Drake....well less said the better, a unique performance from a unique performer.
Each one a winner in their own way.
"As Aristotle said, 'Excellence is a habit.' I would say furthermore that excellence is made constant through the feeling that comes right after one has completed a work which he himself finds undeniably awe-inspiring. He only wants to relax until he's ready to renew such a feeling all over again because to him, all else has become absolutely trivial."
