I didn’t want to say anything until after the draw at El Paso tonight. However, I just received an email that Kip and I made it into the 12 slot El Paso Tracking Dog test on January 25th. It’s about a four hour drive to El Paso from our house, so we’ll leave right after Inca’s Advanced Novice class on Saturday afternoon. I gave my Sunday afternoon basketball tickets to Brock, Angela, and Adrienne (sob!) in exchange for them taking care of Chase and Inca.
This weekend I’ll get someone to lay Kip a track in sand (arroyos work) because that’s the ground at the Fort Bliss area on which the Tracking Club of El Paso holds its test. Think good thoughts for the Kipster — no javelinas or jack rabbits or coyotes to distract him. Hopefully by Sunday afternoon he’ll have a TD. It will make the drive back to Albuquerque so much shorter!
