Odds and Ends

Not a lot to talk about.  Lets see.  Took Guiness to the vet for his yearly check up. I told them he has  been eating dirt. They said sometimes it can mean liver problems or he's anemic. They drew blood to check.

The rescue dog went to a new foster home last week.  Miley was very happy. She isnt to touchy feely but the next morning she came and laid on top of me for about 30 minutes while I was sitting on the couch.  Thats huge for Miley. Usually she will lay next to me on the couch but if  I pet her, she leaves. Silly dog.

Set this course, AKC judge Dale Mahoney excellent jumpers,  up last night for our co-op class. It was freezing out. My toes were so numb, not fun. Then both dogs went off course. Ugh!
This was Java. She didnt read my turn at all and went straight.
Here is what Miley did. I really feel like I left early enough to get the turn at 7 but nope, she went straight.
I really felt like I should have been able to run the course. Now Im thinking maybe I should give up. Its not my dogs, its me. I missing some piece in the training and I dont know what it is.  And Im going to a trial this weekend. Hmmm. Oh, well. All I can do is try.
We had an agility show and go this weekend. Man did it last a long time. I got there before 9am and finally left at 3pm.  And they werent even done.
Im behind and my dog doesnt know where to go.

It was cloudy most of the day. Then the sun came out in the late afternoon and we were all looking for shade.  I set the course. I dont think the people liked my standard course. It was from the UKI trial I was just at. Not the hard courses, just the one from the regular titling classes.

Not much else to talk about. My dogs some how got fleas. So time to go clean some more. Ugh.  I dont know how this happened. Frontline didnt work this month. Bummer.

Fleas are the worst! Hope they go away soon.

I guess Frontline doesn't work well all the time. I haven't had a problem yet but I know people who have. Weird because I had a dream last night that Ricky had fleas.

Remember that the dogs don't know. :) if its you. Or not. They are just playing. Having fun.

Maybe less focus on being perfect and doing things right the first time, and more focus on just celebrating the fact that you CAN do it. And you are doing it with great dogs. :)
