First of all I have to share a story. See the shed at the upper corner of the picture? Well, there is one exactly like it in the field we were in too. I was in the field throwing a floppy Frisbee and managed to hook it right on the upper corner of the shed. And it was a brand new one, too. One of my friends was with her dogs in the next field, and she is all like “just climb up there on the inside and knock it down”. I was thinking, no its a $7.00 toy, not worth it. But then I thought I might as well try. See those slats on the inside? I climbed up them and reeeeaaacched over and hit the Frisbee with my hand and got it back! I am going to have to turn in my handicapped parking sticker.
So for the trial report. It was better. Standard he kept up all the bars!!! Did fine on the A frame, a good teeter, but pulled off of the DW. He also got called for ticking the broad jump, but I watched the video and I sure didn’t see any movement or displacement of any of the boards. I don’t know the rules, can they go just by the sound of the foot on the board? Anyway, it didn’t matter. But I was pleased with the run. And in JWW, he just had one bar (well, actually he took out the whole jump), but it was a tight pinwheel and a lot of the baby dogs had problems there. So a very good day! Except….. Tally bit me at the end of both runs. At least it is not during the run, but still. Its not healthy for me, not good since my medication depletes my immune system and makes dog bites more dangerous. So I guess I will either try to grab his face at the end or teach him to go for his leash. Probably have to go with the leash, because I don’t think I am fast enough to get ahold of him before he “gets ahold of me”. ha ha. Now Tally will go into contact boot camp for a month. We have two weekends of no trial because I am an idiot and can’t keep track of my trial entries, then Seattle Kennel Club, where I will just run Hannah because Seattle is no place for a wild puppy.
