Not a fluke...
Lizzie followed the pattern she established in Fredericton by warming up one day and pulling out the stops the next when she earned her first American JE Leg at the Greater Boston Earthdog Club Test in Gardner MA on August 13, 2006 (judge Christine Forbes)
There was a time when Lizzie was a BT with issues in need of a new home. Fortunately her breeder was there for her and then along came Eric and Dora who were willing to take her in and spend an inordinate amount of time and effort to help her find her place in canine society
While Lizzie may still have her occasional "worries" with other dogs, she now lives in harmony with the family cat and young BT companion Bonus.
She has also discovered her "raison d'etre" through earthdog tests and found a comfortable place to express her character.
In Dora's words:
After numerous tries to qualify in earthdog Lizzie finally got a
qualifying leg in Junior Earthdog under
Judge Marg Pough at the July 30th Eastern Canada Dachshund Club Earthdog
This is the
first time she has not felt it necessary to go check out the judge's end
of the tunnel during a test.
Hopefully it will not be the last!
