The Chaseman was entered all three days at the Valencia Valley Kennel Club Agility Trials held at Eagle Park in Belen. He finished his Novice Standard Preferred title (NAP). I love this photo of him flying toward a jump. Evelyn Vinogradov took this and many other shots. Once she has posted from all three days, I know I’ll be adding more Chase shots to my collection. He’s still a green dog and makes green dog mistakes, but he loves this game. Our classes are winding down for this year so he and I are going to hit the fields. I hope to certify him this winter to enter him in our TD test in January.
Meanwhile, the kids were busy in other parts of the country. Smooch was in Yakima and earned a Novice Fast leg. Lowri and Baby Dinah were showing in Knoxville. Dinah earned two more points and Lowri was Best of Breed one day and Select to Sherri Hurst and Libby the other three days.
Since I was at the trials, the house did not get cleaned (again/still), but I made some small inroads. Chase’s betrothed (Dory) earned a GCh Major — she’s at 13 GCh points with two majors. Since Dory is now nekked, we expect she will come in season soon. When she does, she’ll get on a plane to fly down from Chicago.
My work week has come back to me — on Friday we resolved the matter that was set for trial. So I am able to get to work on the 2013 National Specialty chores and on the Bulletin (not to mention taking care of all my other clients).
