Tracking for Roast Beast

I got up early this morning to go tracking near the lake. It was cool and breezy which always makes me feel skippy. My boyfriend Trotter was there too with his person Chris. Barbara had a very special reward for me - delicious roast beast - which I had never had before. Each article on the track had pieces of roast beast under it. What a wonderful smell.

I was very excited at the beginning of my track and took some time to settle down. It was windy which blows all the scent around. Once I focused I did very well (and found 2 articles with roast beast) until I got to the first turn. I knew where it was and indicated the turn but Barbara had mistaken where she had laid the turn and didn't let me go there. I tried to tell her again but she didn't pay attention so then I got a bit confused. She really MUST learn to trust me since I am the one with the good nose!! Even Chris knew that I had indicated the turn. Barbara must not be able to smell much at all, poor thing.

Finally we got going the right way, I crossed a dirt road, found more articles and made a very good right turn. Then it was straight on to the final article which was a special toy filled with roast beast and cheese. Yeah!

Here is a picture of me with the toy. It is made out of fire hose material and is very strong.

You can see that the bottom opens up to a secret compartment for the roast beast.

I gobbled up the roast beast and cheese so fast that Barbara couldn't get a picture of it. HA!!

Wow, roast beast sounds really, really good. We would like to come over and have some too. Do you think your mom would mind? It is very clever of you to find the beast in the toys, and track them.

Yes, Roast beast is terrific. I'm happy to share it with any of you dogs who want to come tracking with me.
It is lots of fun.

Meepie (or Dr. Misha Meepenstein as he prefers) used to do tracking with my Human. He said it was fun! They used chicken livers.

Oh wow, good job Niamh! You got good nose...Roast beast & cheese is one of the bestest reward you could ever get! I'm still working on my tracking. Still soing the same thing which is, searching for my tennis ball. Hopefully this week, mah teacher will teach me how to search for other scent like my kitty sista. She goes missing sometimes & my mommy needs me to search for her next time...
