    DefaultSimon at Rally Show n Go tonight

    Well, as you may remember, I am putting most of my eggs in the Simon basket for January's trials.

    So tonight Simon went to his second-ever Rally Show n Go for a pulse check. He has been in a Rally ring one other time, and will be in a Rally ring only two more times before the show. I am starting to wonder if this was a bit too ballsy when I think of it like this.

    The only problem we seemed to have was standing around outside the ring waiting to go in. Simon was SUPER stoked to be there and had a deep psychological need to try to engage every dog he saw in a game of "Roll Around On The Floor With Me." : The game was not even limited to dogs, now that I think about it. He had Abby, the 13-year-old daughter of Beth (the other Lab owner at our club) on the floor licking her all over her face while I was trying to buy her Girl Scout cookies. :-\ He knocked over a ring gate in the process.

    However, once in the ring he was just fine. He's such a compliant little man. He knows all the exercises...even quite a few of the advanced exercises. So, once you could tear him away from his potential playmates, he was very nice to be with in the ring. Not as attentive or as flashy as Angus, but like I've always said about him, he gets the job done. olice:

    I'm a little nervous about what getting him into the show will be like, and Thursday and Friday I will be without my dog caddy. But we can go down and set up Wednesday night, so all I will have to do is get in with the dog. I think I will take EVERYTHING but the dog and a leash and just leave it in his crate.

    Angus' first night of Level 4 was last night, and he did surprisingly well for not having been to class in a few weeks. Shocking really. No terrible monkey business at all. ??? It sort of made me a bit wistful...where is my monkey? Did Angus just LAY DOWN between exercises? ???

    Oh well. It will be interesting to see what happens at the trials. I'm excited!

    That's cool that Simon can go from wild and crazy one minute to poised and focused the next. I was just talking to someone about my friend's Doberman who is definitely CRAZY. The other person said "I've never seen a dog so unattentive (he leaps and bounces while working and between exercises) work so well" so take heart, you aren't the only one with a crazy dog.
