Meadowpond's Bonnie Charlie

While all the dog breeds are eligible to compete in the Obedience Ring most of the time you will almost always find at least one Shetland Sheepdog, Labrador Retriever, Poodle, Border Collie, German Shepherd Dog or Golden Retriever.

This is a sketch of a Golden Retriever as he sat waiting during the long sit for his owner to return to the ring. He never moved, he just stared at the last place he saw his owner, ignoring everything going on around him the arena.

It was not surprising that he took High in Trial with an almost perfect score of 199-1/2 out of a possible 200 score.

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Jack McKissock of Nepean, Ontario on their selection of this charcoal painting of their Obedience Trial Champion Meadowpond's Bonnie Charlie UD.
