The One-Legged Dog

May 14, 2010

Despite not having practiced at all for a week, Chase read my mind and performed adequately at today’s trial.  There was no trumpet fanfare, but he earned his first CD leg from Novice B.  There were 16 entries, we were in the second group, we’d been on the grounds since 9:00 this morning — so we are tired.  I’m so proud of my boy — just think what he could do if his person got her act together.  We’re entered tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday.  I so hope we can skip Monday because he finishes his CD on Sunday.

Our conformation schedule is not bad tomorrow, but is really tight on Sunday.  I’ll have to beg to be in the first group of Novice B dogs at 8:00 because Cardis show at 9:05 and little Holmes is in the first class.  I am remembering why I don’t usually enter conformation and obedience at the same cluster.
