On Saturday JEM participated in the 4-H Dog Fun Match which is a mock dog show. Every Thursday night from April through July JEM practices dog showmanship and obedience for the Morgan County 4-H Dog project. They have a mock dog show in June so the kids can get a trial run that prepares them for the show that takes place during the County fair.
The Fun Match is just like the real show so they can see how they are doing so far. JEM and her dog Leo did great. They won 5th place in Showmanship, 4th in the Skill-a-thon ( a test of what they know about breads, grooming tools, dog parts, and more), and 1st for obedience. I’m so proud of her and Leo. They still have a month of practice before the County fair show.
It was a long day but everything went well and we got great weather.
