Luigi and I went to the MOC 3-in-2 trials over Memorial Day weekend. We teamed up pretty well, and Luigi got his CD. Two trials were on Saturday and one was on Sunday. Luigi is 9 years old. I was a little sad as I walked out of the arena because this is pretty much […]

2011 – Why did I have a picture of a black-and-white pooch on my blog with no explanation? Well, I didn’t want to tell the story because I didn’t want to revisit a sometimes painful trip if it didn’t come out all right. But it did, so now I can tell. Here’s the timeline. Wednesday, […]

A friend of mine who competes in the upper echelons of obedience, OTCH level, told me her dog got points off last weekend because she barked at the end of her run.  She missed a placement because of that.  I don’t think the stuffiness is going to come out of that dog sport ever.  I […]

The Miami Obedience Club Agility Trial was a blast!  Raven and I are starting to click.  Just as I suspected, she had it in her to get her 3rd Nov Pref Std leg, and on Friday, we Q’d and Raven has a NAP title now.  All our runs were recorded, and to put or keep […]

This is the time of the MOC agility trial.  It’s a 4-day event, starting today, but I entered my two girls on Friday and Saturday only.  I need a day for chores and rest and I’m also taking vacation days, so pretty much have most of mine planned for the rest of the year.  ‘Cept […]
