    DefaultOur first show tomorrow!

    Emilu and I are entering our first show ever - Rally Novice A - tomorrow. I've had her in obedience classes for a year, advanced obedience since Jan. My worst fear is that "I'll" do something stupid and get us NQ'd. The other thing is - I'm in the process of geting a really bad cold. My boss has it, and missed a day of work last week. I've got a sore throat and losing my voice. Just hope I'm not worse tomorow! We'll be reduced to hand-signals only - for a dog who is still very "treat and praise" oriented. I just keep repeating - "this is so my dog and I can have fun together"!! Wish up luck!

    Good luck and have fun. And don't take a page from the Dweck Handbook on How to NQ in Rally - MAKE SURE YOU DO EVERY SIGN!!!!!!!!

    Good luck. Remember, while you are timed you cannot NQ due to going over that time. Take your time and read every sign. Go through the walk through multiple times and actually do the exercises during the first few walk throughs so you commit the pattern to memory. If you have questions, ASK THE JUDGE DURING THE WALK THROUGH.

    Then take a deep breath and have fun.

    Pat, you go girl!!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

    Do you have a health food store nearby? Can you get some Astragalus? Or, how about some Zicam nasal gel? That stuff worked wonders for me last year!
