Tracking Test — epilogue, post-datum

My “Tracking Test — Epilogue” post looked kind of doom and gloom, perhaps, and I had left out the most important part of the day.

Laev is happy!

Yes, she was uncertain on her track. But she is bright-eyed, eager to engage with me, and she is now happily playing with a puzzle toy. THAT is what matters a heck of a lot more than certifying or not.

And I do think she can do a TD track, or I wouldn’t have wasted someone else’s time in asking a judge to come watch us. But even though we failed, the fact that Laev is feeling good today and was eager to go out this morning means that it’s still a good day.
