At last! We finally figured out how to get around Blogger and post this picture. Mom has been wanting to post this for a couple of weeks now. Thanks to "Blogger Tips and Tricks" we're able to let everybody see Nathan and Mom "back in the day". Yea!
This was when Nathan was doing Earthdog tests and working to become the first Bedlington in breed history to earn the title of Master Earthdog in 2002. This was in New Jersey in June(?) 2001 and Uncle Dennis took the picture of their first ribbon in Master, out of the 4 required for the title. Mom had never taken a dog to Master before so she was very happy! Nathan was almost 11 years old and I wasn't even born yet. Thanks to him and his good coaching, I became Bedlington Master Earthdog number 4 in 2004 and my doggie mom Clancy, the 5th Master Earthdog Bedlington in 2005. There aren't that many of us Bedlingtons doing Earthdog. Josie and Emmy are working their way up the ladder right now from Intro (it goes Intro, Junior, Senior, and Master) and Clancy and I are just doing Earthdog now for fun since we're finished with all the titles.
