On the way home Amanda & I got to talking & I remembered that Tate had gotten his CARO Rally Novice title back in 2007. He got it in 3 straight trials with 2 first places & 1 second place from the Novice B class. I was never able to add the title to his name however as we got all 3 legs under the same judge, rules state you must have at least 2 judges. We moved in October of 2007 to Lethbridge and I never did go to a trial to get the last judge to make it official.
To me this is unfinished business, yes I know Tate doesn't know he doesn't have the title, ( Amanda lol) but I wish I had taken the time to do it, for me.
This is not a post that I want comments on about how I shouldn't dwell on it, I have never dwelled on it, it just happened to come up in conversation , I am proud of each & every title my dogs get. It takes hard work & dedication to get them & why not brag about them?
Anyway, I went back & found this picture of Tate the day he finished his CARO title with the 2nd place ......
