Every Monday morning she says to me, "Audie, do you want to go to tracking class today?" But I think these people send me to class to eat. I can't believe it. These crazy people put gloves, flags, and treats in a huge field and they are amazed that I can find the glove along the food path they set. Duh! I'm hungry and they put food on the ground. How easy it that! I'm a dog with a nose. Well, actually, it was easy until they started turning corners, going up and down hills, spreading the food further and further apart, and sending me into the marsh. But what's a hungry little dog to do? It's pretty easy, it's fun to find the glove at the end of the track, and it makes my person happy when I find it. So, yes, I try to tell her with my eyes and a wag of my tail, "I do want to go to tracking class today."
Pit Bull Awareness, but WHAT'S a 'Pit Bull?'

So happy to hear how much you like tracking! I have not tried this sport yet - I have tried a thing called obedience and this other thing called agility - and love them both! But it's so cool that you are so good at it!!
By the way - How is your knee? I have the same kind of knee and my person is trying to figure out what to do about it. Please let us know!!!
You got yourself the smartest ladies I know, so you must be real smart to get her to make a game out of leading you to treats. What a special life!
JJ you'll get your game soon, as it must be part what they call 're-hab'. Afer my surgery, my folks tried to keep me from doing zoomies by teaching me 'find-it'. They'd put me in a sit-stay, then throw a piece of smelly cheese in a direction that I couldn't watch it. Then after I started to drool, they'd say 'find-it'. I thought I did o.k. cause I found a lot of the cheese pieces. They joked about slobber getting in the way and helped try to direct me with words when I 'lost-it'. They laugh that I'd starve to death if I had to depend on my nose.
Do you get to play tug with the glove? That would be a good reason to find the glove. I'd love to find it with you Audie.
A nose by any other name, Boris
