Guess what?? ONLY 10 more sleeps until the hubby & I and the furry gang pile into the Airstream and hit the road for the U.S. Open in Fletcher, North Carolina!! I am really looking forward to competing with both of my dogs in such a big setting, and spending some quality time with my husband. We are taking a week or so of vacation after the trial, and doing a bit of a road trip through the Great Smokey Mountains.
This weekend has been an awesome time at home – albeit a bit snowy (Oh, Canada!). So nice to spend sometime at home, getting things accomplished and of course working the dogs! Today it warmed up enough that I was able to run barefoot outdoors with Cash…probably the last time for that this year! We worked on short jumping sequences with extension, as well as collection – he is doing so well.
One of my goals for this fall/winter is to focus on trick training with all of the dogs as well – it is so important to keep them mentally stimulated, especially if they can’t get outside quite as much because of the weather! I will try and remember to take some video of us working on our tricks one of these days and post it. It always amazes me how quickly they learn!
Alright! I’m going to put down the laptop & curl up with the dogs – thanks for stopping by! Until next time!
