Since I'm trying to train for an event, I like to evaluate my progress on video so I know what to work on. I'm TERRIBLE about writing these things down, so videos are a great way for me to log it. It just also means taht most of my stuff is done for me and not the masses and a lot of times things don't go as planned.
I lost track of the many ways this was horrific :P The winds were high and we had to set the course at least three times so it was dark by the time I got started with Tripper Trap. He does well despite my son running amok (that's the weird green flashing lights from his shoes), the high winds, the cones all over the place, me forgetting the course, me failing at getting cheese out of an EZ Open wrapper (seriously, NOT EASY TO OPEN!). But yeah, we trained that night gosh darn it!
This is a Striker video that I actually did some editing in. Then I deleted the video short where he was doing all his tricks and commands so yeah... its just him stacking kinda. I'm awesome, I know :P
Here's a Trip Trap video. He's stinking cute and tired after the rally class we'd had that night. That is all :)
We've been holding back on the showing more or less as we FINALLY get some things done on our house! New flooring's going in ,so for all the fans of my infamous avocado green linoleum, sorry but it is no more :) Well, its technically dormant under the flooring we put in.
Here's a post demo, pre flooring video I did:
For the first time ever, I'm going to USASA Nationals. My awesome out of state friends made me do it and I'm working hard to make sure I'm staying busy there! We're entered in Rally with 4 dogs, Agility for three days with Lana, and Conformation with 3 dogs over 5 classes. Potentially we can finish 5 titles in performance, so here's hoping!

Lana and I hit an ASCA Agility trial to see if our retraining is sticking. We still have some more to work on before we'll be competitive again, but my handling and her skills are definitely better! Lana got an Elite Regular 5pt Q even though we really went just for training!
Just me, Beth, the person in charge of the Cirrus Crew! Reporting LIVE (or semi so!) on our happenings about the place and at shows.
