    Another obedience trial weekend. I have Piper entered in Rally Excellent (been out of it for 2 years) and Finnie in Novice Friday through Monday. Should be interesting with Finnie...he's got sooo much energy! Plus, if we get his Novice in 3 trials I'll move him up to Advanced. Finnie off leash....I'll REALLY have to talk to him lots!
    Piper is also entered in Utility Saturday through Monday (we're going for mat time today) so fingers crossed third times a charm (this is the third dog show we've entered this year). We started this journey a year ago at this same show we have this weekend so I'm hoping we're a team from start to finish!:fl

    Well we got in the ring today for mat time and if Piper's focus, eagerness and drive are any indication we should ace it. He did everything correct.
    Crazy the things you'll do for a dog show...drove a total of 3 hours there and back just to get in the ring for 30 minutes! I think it'll pay off in the end!

    Go Finnie too ! Lol

    I'll get video of their Rally runs from today and this weekend. Rally is supposed to start at 12:30 today so after I'm on with Piper (I'll need to tire him out for a half hour or so before we go on or its bark bark bark lol) then I can work on expending some of Finnie's energy. I'm bringing the flexi and a ball and a frisbee so I can tire him out. He was so distracted by everything yesterday and whiny! Fortunately I'll have about an hour (at least...this judge is notorious for being slow) between runs.

    that's good that you'll have time between the dogs.... you really need that.
    you are more dedicated than I am- even when there's a match 1 or 2 hours away, I tend not to go- too lazy.
    I might need to do that when I start showing the younger boys- Cran is pretty good about going anywhere and being fine wherever we are......

    I don't know that I'd drive 1 or 2 hours for a match but in the future who knows? We're losing a dog building where they usually do 3 or 4 matches a year, rent is doubling so they're not renewing the lease. I may have to drive further for them and they are sooo beneficial!
