    DefaultFirst time Open for us, March 12

    Okey dokey. I signed Simon up for Open on March 12 today.

    Eeeeeeeek!

    This one is going to be a little bit of a weird deal. It's part of a four-day conformation show, and they are only having obedience on one day, Friday. BUT, it is going to be after BIS for that day. On the program I read, it had "Dinner and Obedience: 6 pm - 11 pm. So we might be there at 11 at night, trying to do Open! The good thing about that is, I will be too sleepy to be nervous.

    The good news is, it is the same judge who qualified Angus after he failed to sit during any part of the heeling pattern in Novice, sniffed the crotch of one of the posts, and attempted to leave the ring in between sits and downs (he made it all the way to the gate and was only stopped by our training director). He Q'd with a 171. Ugliest thing you ever saw. Even *I* wouldn't have qualified him, and I'm his mother! LOL

    Anyway...so we know this judge is charitable. Simon will really have to screw up in a major way (which I do realize is entirely probable for his first Open run).

    Well, it will be good practice for us all.

    Tomorrow night I'm going to class early. Our heeling instructor very kindly and generously agreed to help me by doing some Open run-throughs and giving me some pointers. I will probably take both boys and work with Simon on Open before class, then let Angus come out for heeling class.

    I wish you good luck. I can't imagine showing at 11:00 at night. I could do it (I work nights you know) but my dogs would be asleep, LOL!

    Yeah, that's a good point Karen. Actually, now that I think about it, it may kind work in our favor, because I usually do training at home with them between 8:30 and 9 at night. So hey, maybe this will not be bad after all!
