Ready to go

Every thing is ready to go for the trial.  Even Miley is ready. Well, she thinks she is ready.  I finally work her last night in the back yard, just over some contacts.  She was wild and crazy.  I told my husband I wasnt sure I should run her since she really hasnt done agility in a month.  He said, just run her easy. LOL, yea right. Have you met Miley??  She doesnt do agility easy.  Her foot looks great too!!
I took Java with me to the trial site yesterday.  She had a good time.  And when everyone was paying so much attention to her, Miley decided that she wanted to be petted too. Shocking.   Java will be much bigger than Miley.  And I know this. But everyone kept saying how "huge" Java was. It was scaring me.  She is about 12 1/2 inches and she will be 16 weeks on Sunday. So she is only an inch shorter than Miley right now. I hope thats why everyone thinks she looks big.
Well, I dont have time to write anything else.  (I like the water flinging circle off her tail in the picture below)

I hope everything goes smoothly at your trial this weekend.

So happy to hear that Miley is back!

People say weird things when you have a puppy. I really wish they would leave their comments with, "Oh, she's so cute." I really don't want them to give me a play by play analysis. Ya know?

They're all beautiful dogs. Have fun at the trial whether or not you run Miley. I know she (and you) are going to want to run though! So maybe just go for it, with no expectations and see what happens.

If she is really 12.5" at 16 weeks (accurate measure) you should have an "in-size" sheltie. (under 16"). I would guess around 15". If I am right do I win a prize? :-)

Glad that Miley is feeling good! Good luck at the trial this weekend.

Also, don't worry too much about Java's size. I'm sure you've seen this, but according to the charts she's still pretty much measuring in-size: http://bowlingsite.mcf.com/Size/size.html

Also, Lexi got tall really early. She was 12" at 14 weeks, and then 13.5" at 18 weeks. She's now only 15.5", so she really stopped growing!

Miley is going to be over the top at your trial this weekend! No matter what, she is going to have a blast!

Good luck with all of it - hope the trial runs smoothly and you can relax and have a good time!

Good Luck at the trial! Miley will be great and you will be too! Java does look huge compare to Miley!

Oh My Jave, you are so brave for being so young. Be careful around the water my little one.

Until you grow a bit more, which seems to be happening at a very quick rate.

And Way to go Miley....keep em wondering.....

Diana,
You know the growth charts, right? If she is 12.5 at 16 weeks, she is just under the line for 16 inches at maturity. So not she's not huge. I think its a great size, lets the dog jump comfortably in the middle of the dogs in 16" for AKC and right at the top of the dogs in USDAA 16". Diane
