"Good" rating & "Tracking Dog" Title Judge Ms. E. L. Watt.
Tilly tracked nicely along the first leg, thoroughly checked out the first turn and indicated the first article clearly. She made the next turn and found the second article. She sorted out the problem of where the lone sheep had been camping, then made her way to the t-shirt

September 2008 Tilly gains Qualification at Qualification Test age 8 months
Tilly proved her worth in the rain to qualify on her Tracking Qualification Test. As far as the rain was concerned she was almost oblivious to it and was one sodden little dog afterwards. After doing her required Track to find Sean in the bush she enjoyed her yummy treats. One very wet but happy dog was accompanied back with friend, judge and steward and a slightly wet but happy owner convinced it is the handler that needs to improve. It was not until back at the car that it was discovered Linda's car keys had slipped out of the little bum bag pouch probably while walking over a rock or something. Serves me right for not taking the usual bag, says Linda. Oh dear says everyone. Are you sure you didn't lock them in the car? No, definitely not! Next you have owner-Linda, friend-Sean, judge-Nid and steward-Sheila all checking where could they most likely be in an expanse of ? There's Linda saying Somewhere "out there" not wanting to consider the repercussions of the no keys scenario. Without hesitation Tilly was told 'find' around the original trail just walked, so off she went again, this time on a shorter lead. Sheila was muttering I've got at least 2 twitty friends because she has seen this before with someone else! Nid pointed out the start bush once more and Tilly re- tracked the trail previously walked straight down and then around the turn, and yes, there they were...car keys. It took just a few minutes. Walking back after that, the tracklayer, Sean managed to drop a sock (used in the test) for a second time and kept walking. Following behind were Sheila, Linda and Tilly who came across the sock too with Linda calling out "article". There are benefits in tracking even as novices......you never know when it may be useful.......and thanks to Tilly, Linda was able to drive home.
