A few of Lil’s runs from last weekend’s trial

Its been 2 months since our last trial.  I missed two local trials in June due to my exhibition in Luxembourg and a schedule conflict with a family event.  Its funny,  in 2 months time I had sort of forgotten how much fun trials are in terms of the “whole” trial experience: hanging out with friends, watching other teams run, and of course running my own dog.

Jake is currently “on the bench” due to a slight limp earlier in the week after a particularly exciting hunting expedition in our backyard.   😦 So his “turns” consisted of Freestyle and Flatwork done at a run, which is similar to agility in terms of energy and teamwork so I think he was content “earning” his treats by doing this vs. running over agility obstacles.

Lil didn’t seem to mind the 90 degree temps plus soaring humidity.  She ran well all weekend long.   The trial was held at a campground in Dummerston, VT, which has huge pine trees to park under.  Between the shade and Ryobi fans, Jake and Lil were comfortable and cool all weekend long.  As for me, I must have eaten an entire watermelon and drank a gallon of water to stay cool… which worked very well.

  1. It was great to see you and Lil at the Dummerston trial, Dev. Thanks for the good ideas for using the Manners Minder more creatively to help build Missy’s speed and drive. Missy and I ended the day with 4 Qs from 4 runs and our Regular 2 run felt like poetry in motion — what fun!

    • Tammy, It was great meeting you and Missy and Smudge! Congrats on all those Qs and in particular on the “poetry in motion” run. WHOO HOO! I love those when they happen!!! 🙂
