    DefaultWish us luck, please :)

    We are busy packing and preparing for our big road trip tomorrow. Both boys are entered in the Chattanooga show this weekend.

    Let me repeat - BOTH boys.

    I am pretty petrified. By Saturday morning I'm sure to be a basket case!

    This is a nice show. You may remember it from my hot-dog-spitting story last year. But don't worry - this year I'm using chicken. If worse comes to worst, I can swallow a mouthful of chicken.

    Angus has been to this venue several times, and he usually does pretty well here. They are very considerate of newbies, and very charitable about where they put our ring. Simon has never been to this venue. In fact, Simon has never ridden in the car for longer than an hour. Tomorrow will be two. So, here's hoping he doesn't melt down before we even get there.

    We are driving down Friday night, and we're in the ring on Saturday and Sunday morning about 9:45. With any luck, Simon will Q on Saturday, and on Sunday he can move up to Excellent. Then I will have more than like five minutes in between dogs. But Saturday, Angus is #503 and Simon is #508. The only other time I've ever done something with both was when they took their CGCs. Well, we've done some Rally practices with both. But still...

    I have NO IDEA what to expect.

    Full report on Sunday.

    Oh, we are also going to try to SEE ROCK CITY on Saturday afternoon. If we can go with the dogs. So, needless to say, Angus and Simon will be doing a lot of posing with garden gnomes.



    Connie and "The Boys":
    Angus, Yellow Lab, CGC, RE, CD
    Simon, d.b.a. Flat Coated Retriever, CGC, RE, CD

    Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
    Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever

    Good luck Angus and Simon! I dunno what your sport's version of "Line the blinds and pin the marks!" may happen to be, but "Line the blinds and pin the marks!" ;D

    This is a case where it is valid to ask the judge if you can move one to the beginning or end of the jump heights. They make accomodations like this all the time. Don't stress yourself out about it.

    Good luck and bring home some greens. ;D

    Hmmm, good idea! But you know what, I bet they already did that. There are only eight dogs in Advanced on Sunday, and seven on Saturday. They've got Simon last both days.

    I actually numbered their forms when I sent them in with a big "1" and "2." I had no idea if they'd accomodate, but I was hoping for Angus to be first and Simon second. They did it.

    Good Luck to all. I hope the dogs can keep the handlers in line.
