Mia substitutes at 4H

The 4H kids are training weekly during the summer, and this week Mia got her chance at 4H.

A new kid just signed up and needed a dog so I volunteered Mia. Then at the last moment, Elvis’ young handler couldn’t make it so he stayed home while Mia substituted.

On a side note, the guys went on point while a Robin perched on the fence and everyone (including the Robin) were steady enough for me to go into the house, retrieve my cell phone, and take a picture of them.

  1. LOL impromptu training with a robin. Too bad Elvis missed out on the 4H fun.

    • I don’t think he missed it at all, they don’t quite know how to deal with 5- and 6-year old girls handling them! Unfortunately right now the baby robins are learning to fly and the guys have caught several that were unfortunate enough to get into the back yard.
