Basically if I don’t blog now, I’ll fall hopelessly behind on this entire week.
The boys are quite happy to be rooming with their buddies Loki and Beckham – 4 beardie boys in the room equals vigorous playtime!
Tuesday was the National agility trial. Elayne was kind enough to come and take some great photos – you can see them here! The boys had pretty good results – Max went 4th place in both Excellent Standard and Jumpers for a double-Q and Stanley went 3rd place in Open Jumpers!
One highlight of the agility trial was seeing Stanley’s son Keegan! What a chip off the old block.
Another highlight was the fun team relay that is done at the end. Our team was The Princes and the P (3 boys and Piedra).
The relay is all about entertainment and funny things happening. We did not disappoint.
Wednesday was rally obedience, obedience, futurity, and sweepstakes. Stanley and I picked up his last Rally Advanced leg with a 1st place to finish his title!
Later in the evening, I got to show Max for the first time in many years in Veteran Sweepstakes. It is SO much fun to get out there and show the old dogs again, and I was emotional over it the whole time. Max couldn’t quite figure out what the heck we were doing but he was having a blast.
In summary, so far, the week has been fun, exhausting, too little sleep, too much time on feet, and wonderful. I’ve been squeezing in my workouts too – boy can I see how strong an athlete you can be from training at altitude! Off to another day at the dog show…
