SchnOctoberfest 2009

We had a great time at the fifth annual SchnOcoberfest fundraiser for the North Carolina Schnauzer Rescue on Saturday afternoon. We took Riesling for a two mile walk before the 30 minute drive to the event, so she was pretty chill by the time we got there.

The organizers had set up a few agility course items, but nothing I said was going to make Riesling enter the tube thing.

nothing you say will make me want to go in there
There is no way I am going in there.

She was more game for the jumping obstacles, but I had to put a bar underneath the top one or she would just schooch underneath. No one said she wasn’t clever.

jump!
wheeee!

Riesling and I tried our luck at the sit & stay competition but she was eliminated after a few distractions. I was most proud that she wasn’t the first up! After that, she spent a little time as the donation dog while we hung out in the shade to cool off.

All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to be outside with 50 mini schnauzers!
