On 11 November, Logan, the girls and I travelled to Bairnsdale to compete in the Triple Trick Trial put on by the Bairnsdale Obedience Dog Club.

She needed two passes to gain her title, as she had one already from the Newfoundland Club.
She attained her Trick Dog Starter title and even managed a first place in the first trial of the day with a score of 59.8/60.
