    Mia's mock went well. Of the 4 'elements' she came in with the fastest time in 3 of them and the 2nd fastest time in one of them. Woohoo! She's always raring to work.

    Of course we did have some hiccups, particularly on our second round (which we paired with food). She alerted once on the sideboard on truck where there was no odor. We've used this truck so many times though, I'm sure there was residual odor there. On her second container search (paired) she stopped on a box, pawed at it, jumped all over it, pawed some more and I tried to call it, but apparently she was just making things up. I have no idea, I was SO SURE she'd found it.

    We need to work on our alerts.

    So now we're moving on to Sunday field trips, should be fun.

    Somehow Summer also got signed up for an intro class too. LOL I'm pretty sure Summer is not going be nearly as talented but she'll probably have just as much fun wooing the other people and getting out of the house.

    When does it classify as an addiction? :lol-sign:
