    DefaultNot a bad weekend

    Kodi and I had a three day trial this weekend in Grand Rapids. Overall, pretty darned good. Kodi earned her OM2 and her UDX2 and a whopping ONE OTCH point!! Keeping in mind of course that the #1 dog in the nation was there (Laura R's Sheltie Flare), so a win was unlikely.

    Ever so gradually, the fronts are straightening out and finishes are better. A walk back from the DR today killed us (3 points off), but still got us a 3rd in Utility. I am still coming to grips with how geeked up to get Kodi in the ring. Too much and she gets too wild (TOTALLY blowing fronts...as in none whatsoever), and not enough, a walk back. Ah well, it is the journey that is the most important!

    Now, if I could only get MY mind around footwork, not drifting into my dog, run-offs, and the transitions from slow to normal and then an about turn....and that there is not a dumbell in the dog's mouth on the Broad jump....(apparently I reached for a dumbell on the BJ on Saturday, got confused, gave the wrong finish signal, tried to give the right one)...which cost us 1st place against the #1 dog!!

    Five. She is the youngest competing in the B classes at most of the shows we are at.
