Being nervous before the show!
Waiting for their turn next. Mae just wants to wrestle.
Mae was not good. Most of the time during heel, she just ran along and tried to eat Nathan's hand. She wouldn't do her stand stay at all. Which, we knew she would struggle. Even though she would successfully perform a lot of the commands at home, in an arena with lots of distractions she just couldn't. She looked like an 8 month old puppy who wanted to play out there. And that is what she is! But I have to give Nathan credit--he kept his cool. Not once did he look flustered or lose his temper or anything. And his trainer told the judge, "You should have seen this dog at the beginning of the year. He has really made great strides with her."
Actually heeling at this moment!
Waiting for awards. Mae says, "I'm bored!"
Showing off his ribbon!
Relief! It is all over!
