A Sunday Stroll… Well a 20km Endurance Trial

Cutting to the chase… We Did It!

Up at the crack of dawn. Was wondering what was going on?

Should have known better when we had the bike with us…

But we had a great time.
– I stayed beside mum pretty much most of the time (better than any training ride we have done. Mum happy).
– if there was an award for toilet stops I would have won it (don’t mind me… I think it was becoming a laughing point for the rest of the group).
– lots of fun wildlife to look at (ducks, grass parrots, other strange duck type things, sheep) but I did good and listened to ‘leave it’.
– was very well behaved at all the vet checks and did quite like the girls from Sydney Uni Vet school who did the 4 checks before, during and after the trial and gave me lots of pats.

And then I got this piece of material… That I tried to chew.

    fantastic news Mel, GO Bodhi. Can Bodhi come and teach leave it to my zoomie Darcy ?

      There were some dicey moments Darcy with the ducks and swallows on the course. The Aussie Shepard in front of us was a real risk of doing zoomies.
      You would have lived it Darcy… So much running.

      Thanks Donna. Yeah mum took it off me. We only get to pass the Endurance Test once so I think she wants to keep that one.

      Thanks Ruby. We are pretty chuffed.
      Slept for a bit this afternoon and now back to driving mum nuts with the tennis ball at her feet.

          I can only imagine how you can ‘help’ at the C2S Ruby. Can’t wait to hear about it.

    Awesome Pawsome effort. Have been contemplating doing this with Scooter. You may have just been my inspiration to get off my butt & do I this year 😉

      It is well worth it. We loved it (although I’m sure it would be harder in the heat up there in FNQ)
