So I made it up there and got the RV parked. It was on a incline so I had to put blocks under the tires on the left. I also put blocks under the levelers.
The weather was good. Thursday was warm but later in the day the temeprture started dropping. So now is was windy and cool. I think at night it dropped between 43-50. It warmed up during the day so that was nice. It was never really hot. I was really glad I put a sweatshirt and pants in my bag. Who would of thought I would need those type of clothes when its almost June. LOL
On Saturday Miley turned 8 years old. This picture was taken on Saturday.
The werid thing that happened was Miley has become a barker in her crate. It started Satruday evening. Ususally once I walk away from the crate or cover the crate , she stops barking. Not now. It was horrible. I think what happend was Java got three more turns to run on Saturday then Miley did. I think she was mad. One time when I took them out to use the bathroom, I tried to put her back in the crate. I took her leash off and she took off up the stairs and headed down the walkway. Ack!! She did come back when I called her but not the first call. She wasnt as barky Sunday but she got to run just as much as Java. I hope this isnt her new thing.
Java acts werid at trials too. This started last year. At first I thought she was injuired but I had her checked and rested her for 2 months. She still does it and it gets worse as the weekend progresses. I usuallly only do 2 days but this time I decided to do 3. And USDAA regionals I think its 4 days. Hmmmm. What she does and starts refusing to go on walks to warm up and cool down. She just wants to from her crate to the ring and the ring to her crate. Lots of time she will just sit down and refuse to move. I make her move but its just weird.
We had a nice weekend. Miley had 2 T2B Qs and Two master standard Q's. We missed a double Q and at T2B Q by one dropped bar.
Java is still having teeter fly offs. So I used FAST to work on teeters. She would still fly off the first time over and then try to stop after that.
By Sunday, it finally worked. She finally stopped so we could Q. LOL
She took 2nd place. A border collie beat her. I think we would have taken first if she had turned the correct way out of the tunnel.
This jumpers course was really easy. I planned two blind crosses with both dogs. I made it with Miley but she dropped a bar. I didnt make it with Java. I should have started the first blind between 7-8 sooner.
We played ISC standard and jumpers on Saturday.
I was very happy we got the opening. I was really worried she would jump off the down ramp to make the turn. We are still working on this so I wouldnt be surprised if she did it but she didnt.
But then I didnt turn my head to make sure I had my dog as she came out of the tunnel. I was more concerned to get down the line to cue the turn after the chute. So when she came out of the tunnel, she went up the dogwalk. Lots of dogs did this.
Then ISC jww. This course was crazy hard. I really didnt see the reason to make it this hard. I mean it wasnt and ISC qualifier.
I think 3 dogs made it through clean. Even slow dogs werent getting through this. It was tighter than it looks on the map, #7-14. Im not even posting Java's run because it was a hot mess. I think we finished the night at 8pm.
This run was fun. It was T2b. We didnt Q because of the teeter but I put two blinds in an was so happy I made it. Just barely. LOL

This JWW course was lots of fun. To bad I screwed it up with both dogs. Ugh!!
I really felt like I cued the turn at #9 but when you watch the video, I didnt cue it at all. Whats up with that??? That happens to me a lot. I feel like I did something on course and I watch the video and I didnt do it at all. I really need to work on this.
The last run was JWW. Miley Qed. Java acted really werid. She just ran by the weaves and then missed a jump. We finally got it together in the end. Not sure what was up with that.
(So I already lost this post once and had to rewritte the entrie thing. I hope this works).
