We tried something new today - something fun, now that we are taking a break from the show ring. Yesterday, Sparrow took a fun run in Fast CAT and today we tried her at CAT which is lure coursing. The Monterey Bay Coursing Association was having an event at Brigantino Park right here in Hollister. So we decided to check it out!
This is Sparrow singing to have her chance to run.
Sparrow wondering why Mom is sitting over there in the field and she's with Dad a long way away.
Okay, I'm at the line, where are you Mom?
And, she's off!
Aw, nope! I think I'll just turn around here and go back to Dad. That's what he wants me to do, right?
Okay, I'm coming to you, Mom!!
Sparrow ran about 150 yards on the big 600 yard course and lost interest. This was her first time running and we might try it again in the future. In the meantime, we're thinking she might like to do Fast CAT instead. Fast CAT is a 100 yard dash that's timed. In order for her to get her first title, she has to acquire 150 points. It goes up from there.
