For those of you unfamiliar with the lingo, OTCH stands for Obedience Trial Champion. Years of work and dedication go into obtaining an OTCH, and people who have earned that title with their dog take great pride in their achievement. So what could be better than an OTCH? A dog (or dogs) that are well behaved and (most of the time) easy to live with, that's what!!
I swear my guys get an almost evil pleasure out of performing a perfect sit stay while mommy (me) walks some misbehaving, loose, bucking bronco of a dog back to it's chagrined owners. This has happened more than once (with different dogs) now. Honestly, when I turn around to walk back to them, they look very smug and superior. Guess I can't blame them!
Oh yeah, earning an OTCH some day in the dreamy future would be awfully nice too!

Holly and Mikey say nothing, they just look insufferably smug.
