    DefaultHi, my name is Karen and I am a compet-o-holic

    Yikes, I just marked on my calendar the conformation shows, Rally trials and hunt tests that I want to enter July through September.

    4 hunt tests (running 4 dogs)
    6 Rally trials (running 3 dogs)
    8 weekends of conformation (means about 35 shows, but "ALL" I want is one win on Hoss for his Grand title and put a UCH on another pup of mine!)
    1 WC test (running 3 dogs)

    Anyone know how I can be 150 miles apart at the same time???

    LOL. I hope you are rich as well

    I've slowed down in my showing... mainly due to the rising gas prices. I stay within 2 hours driving time (exception is an agiilty trial I enjoy in Camden which is 3 hours away). I generally only show at two agility trials in the fall, and three in the spring. Obedience trials are 2 in the fall/winter and two in the spring/summer. I just don't show a whole lot... gets expensive and I start to resent losing my weekends (and having to get up so darned early).

    Go, have fun, bring home lots of Q's!!!

    Wow that's a lot, especially with multiple dogs.* I was lucky. Last year I was only running one. This time year will be 2 so twice the expenses.

    The AZ show season is from mid Sept to mid March.* This last season we competed in:

    Between Sept 17 - Dec 17

    2 matches
    15 obedience trials
    6 rally trials
    8 agility trials

    Between Jan 7 - March 4

    1 match
    0 obedience trials
    0 rally trials
    12 agility trials

    Wow!* That's a lot too.* I didn't realize we went to so many.* I know I never plan on having any free weekends during show season but when you see the numbers written down like that...Wow.* I sure hope my SU doesn't find out about this. He still thinks shows cost $5.* ;D* I guess I have to join compet-o-holics anonymous too.

    I totally understand--I have been showing at least one day each weekend since May between showing in breed and obedience (have not done any Rally for a while)! I am off this weekend but was at a Specialty Thursday and Friday. Caleb is pooped! I know about wanting to be two places at once--the weekend of the All-Star is the same weekend of a huge show in my area that is always, always majors. Oh well. We won't be there!!!
