The Moose

by Steve on April 6, 2009

Moose, aka “Big Brown”, wanted me to let his fans know that his handler (me) finally managed to get him through a 4th pass so he now has his AKC Junior Hunter title.  Did it on Saturday too, which I appreciated since it meant a return trip on Sunday wasn’t necessary.  Could have fleeted up to the Senior test but a pass there would have required tricks he hasn’t even seen yet so we scratched Sunday rather than hurt anyone’s feelings.

His manners at the line were within reason although I did have to give him “the look” when he spit out a duck, lowered his shoulder in preparation for a victory roll, and thankfully looked up to inquire.  “No, we don’t need to do that right now!”  The look was accompanied by a bit of a growl (from me) to “fetch and hold!”  It worked.  Briefly.

Big congrats to him!! But no pictures?

And does he now wish to be addressed as Mr. Moose? Or does that have to wait for the Senior award?

Yea… Hope all is well. Haven’t seen you or the moose lately. Take care.
