The week in Topeka skewed my internal calendar. I came back to Albuquerque on Monday and went back to the office on Tuesday. But, somehow, that Tuesday became my Monday. So I did not go to Super Drill on Tuesday night to hand in my entries for our local Club’s trial on May 8th, and the next day (Wednesday by everyone else’s calendar) which I thought was Tuesday, I did not go on-line and enter the Rio Grande KC Trials. In retrospect, Kip had not been given the practice he deserved to go into Open. We probably could have muddled through the last leg of Rally Advanced B, but I think I’m tired, and I really have a hang-up about taking my dog to obedience trials when I’ve not spent time polishing him up. So, we’ll start Utility training and then try for his CDX during the three-day Labor Day trials.
In the meantime, Inca might deign to heel (somewhere near my left leg) off-leash, and when Chase gets home, I’ll start working with him in something — probably Rally first, and, of course, tracking which he loves.
