Well, I have come to the conclusion that Caleb no longer needs me in the Utility ring when it comes to directed jumping. Sunday we had a really nice run going but he decided to hover at the go-out point and then take the correct jump before the judge could even say anything. Snot! Even the judge was amused and told me how he didn't need either one of us on that exercises. Geez! In Open, again blowing a nice run he decided to go visit Carol Mett's boy on the long sit! Judge went and got him and when I came back he was sitting with the steward with a "I really did something wrong" look on his face.
Micah got another RAE leg with two first places. At least we broke the trend of being 10 points lower on the second run. That boy sure makes me work hard in the rally ring. He's up to six now. Soon he'll be coming out in Pre-Novice, too. I'm actually rather excited about starting to show him.
Congrats with Micah!
Awww Caleb, good thing you are such a sweet boy...otherwise I think your little blonde butt would be in a LOT of trouble!

OK- I know nothing about the dog show world..what is a RAE?
WTG Micah!!! I so know what you mean that he makes you work ........... Bo does the same to me. Caleb, Caleb what are we going to do with you, you silly boy?!!

Sounds like Caleb was being... Caleb, and Micah was being a good boy! What a difference from last year, heh? He wasn't even ready for the ring. You've done a lot with him this year.
I was wondering if the Mett's went. Bert and Connie told me they weren't going... since they lost their old boy last year they haven't been showing as much, but they were in Charleston and told me they are getting another puppy real soon!
Helen didn't have a good weekend either.
Glad you got home safely!
Helen came up and said hi to me. We kept passing one another and looking at one another like we knew each other. She finally stopped and said something to me! Was actually kind of funny!
LOL, yeah I talked to her on the phone this morning and she told me ya'll kept looking at each other like you knew each other, and then it dawned on her that you were my friend
I have been showing horses for many years and have come to know the lingo. This dog business is all new and confusing....so its quite an education to starting learning a whole new language!
