We Didn’t Enter the Mothers Day Trials

April 27, 2009

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.

    I did my entries from a Motel 6 on my way home. I was afraid that I would forget.

    And then it turned out nobody else entered anyway (sigh).

    It is not “those you enter the most dog shows/trial/tests” win. It’s “those who have the most fun with their dogs — win!”

    Wise word of Sage Sandy

    So we won’t see you in ABQ? Bummer…. We’re carpooling with friends, staying with friends and going to do our best not to grumble over the 8am freaking ring times…. tho, I guess that also means we’ll get home that much sooner on Sunday 😉

    You mean you still have an internal clock?

    I think mine is on a highway somewhere!

    Of course you realize that now with all that training time, we will be expecting perfect scores on those kids! Just kidding of course. Let us know how training goes.
