Well, what a fun evening!
Penny ran for the first time in front of a crowd of strangers. The first time, she forgot it's all about the ball and came racing back without it!
But the second time she did it beautifully.
And then...she ran in a team for the first time!
And as for the vexed question of the crate? The super expensive large one we bought was so heavy we couldn't get it out of the car!
Luckily someone let us use their spare crate.
And the kind lady who sold us the eBay one may let us exchange it for a larger one - a LIGHT one that we can carry.
