Hail ta the Champion.....my friends......

Hi ya Bloggies,

Yep...I say Hail ta the champion.....my friends...........

She'll chase those rats right to the end.........


Now who would the champion be....ya might ask me.......


Well, as usual it's my Mom....


Last Saturday August 20, 2011, my Mom passed her 3rd and last qualifying senior earthdog meet at the Wester Pa Earthdog Club in Donegal, Pa.


Ya have ta pass the Senior Earthdog test 3 times ta get yer Senior Earthdog  title and so this was the one that really was important.
 There's the earthdog judge with my Gram 'n my Mom after she won the 2 ribbons.

One fer passin' the test
and the second one fer gettin' 'er Senior Earthdog title.



 See there's those 2 ribbons Mom won last Saturday.........

She's always showin' off.......

Not funny Mom.....not funny at all.....


 

 Now there's all the ribbons that my Mom won........

2 fer passin' Junior Earthdog Tests....

'N one fer her Junior Earthdog Title........

3 fer passin' 3 Senior Earthdog tests....

'N one fer gettin' 'er Senior Earthdog Title....



Here she is showin' off with 'all 'er ribbons......

Fer some reason, she sure doesn't look happy....

But then that flash beastie drive her nuts so she won't look at it.........


That's what the entrance ta the Senior Earthdog tunnel looks like....

It's 30 feet long with two 90 degree turns in it, a false den and a false exit or entrance 

which ya better not go in cause ya get failed. 

It's only 9 inches high and wide.

My Mom goes right in cause she knows the rats are in there 'n she wants ta get 'em....

Too bad she never gets ta get 'em cause they are safe in a little cage at the end of the tunnel.

But she sure has fun tryin'.....

*********************

Now ya may be wonderin' why I....Dewey Dewster do not have any earthdog ribbons......

I'm still tryin' ta figure that one out myself.....

Cause I'm a master hunter.....fer sure.....

Just watch what I can do.......



'N here's me....the Vermin Hunter too........

 

Ya can see that I know what I'm doin'.....why I'm chasin' a Vermin....

I know there's vermin in that wood pile 'n I want 'em.

So Gram promised me that next year, I get ta try ta get my Junior Earthdog title ........

It's along story why I didn't get ta try this year 'n last too......

I'll explain later.......yes siree.....

So a BIG CONGRATULATIONS TA MY MOM, ASTA MARIE

JUNIOR & SENIOR EARTHDOG !!!!!!!!!

If ya want ta learn about Earthdog, Wikipedia has a good explanation.

********************
To anyone who is in the path of Hurricane Irene....stay safe....stay dry......stay indoors....

We hope that it's all over soon.....


This is Dewey Dewster reportin' on my Mom's big day.....'n Gram's promise ta me fer 2012......
so I can be an earthdog too.......
