Crackers had another good weekend, but he did have a few bars, again...slippage :( Oh well. The huge brag was that he finished his ADCH-Bronze on Sunday :) Whatta good pupper! I am so proud of the husband and Crackers...makes me tear up at times watching them!!! So excited to see what they will do at USDAA Nationals this year :)
Lynn--this girl is growing up :) It was so much fun running her this weekend...if little things here and there, BUT...she picked up her first Standard leg, first Gamblers leg and ALL her runs were just lovely...which is a new thing :) I am in a new phase of the DW crapola...not worrying about the DW, and worrying about HANDLING...a good place to be, too bad it required me to lose a gorgeous standard Q to a refusal to show me. Oh well...live and learn :) She's getting faster, times were up there where I can compare, she's running solid times and she's still not giving me 100% of what she does at home...but it's happening. More GREAT teeters :)
I didn't put her in team, wanted to focus on getting older dogs Q'd up...but now, I'll probably be working on getting her on a team to get her DAM Q :)
Each trial is better and better. Very happy with Stewart!
Klinker was a good girl as well for the most part. She did have a few moments of "wow I haven't been trained in a LONG time"...oops :) But overall she was a good girl. She won jumpers both days, which always makes me smile as she was such a bar knocking crazy dog when she started :) Her team finished 2nd with the husband and Crackers :) It's fun teaming with the husband. A person might think that would be tough...but honestly, it's a lot of fun :)
So all in all, a good weekend, Sunday I felt more connected to the dogs, and now I am wanting to get back into training them :)
My barn is officially done...now to still figure out the footing...never ending...
It's feeling more and more like fall so I need to get on that. Not ready for summer to be over. Not one bit. But there will be another summer :) Right?? :)
