Lots of Updates

It's been really busy so not much time to blog but lots of good stuff.

Blitzen at IKC ~ February 21 & 22. Ruby had some good runs the first day but had a lot of problems with the surface. It was pretty slippery. It was so hard to watch her trying to run fast yet having a hard time staying on her feet. We NQ'd on both runs the first day but she QQ'd on Sunday to make up for it. She had a nice 3rd place run in Jumpers and won her class in Standard. That's QQ #11!

Smack Dab in Naperville, IL ~ February 27 - March 1. She had some great runs Friday and Saturday. Sunday was kind of a mess (all me) but she was working great for me and as always trying her heart out. I love my little red-headed girl! =) On Friday she QQ'd and that makes #12!

Though the trial was long it was great catching up with everyone and hanging with people I haven't seen in a while. Katie and Fergus looked great this weekend, finishing his AXJ title. Ashlee and Spirit QQ'd on Sunday and had some awesome runs all weekend. It was great having Julia and Darby back - next time we'll be putting a bet on all front crosses! =) Of course hanging with Whit and Grant - the Lab Collectors - was fun as always. Go Pants! And Whitney and Rumor are really starting to come together as a team.

In a week we leave for Louisville, KY. I'm really looking forward to this trial. Should be a lot of fun and Ruby will be back on dirt ~ her favorite running surface! I entered her in ISC Classes to prep for State Team Competition at Nationals. I've also entered River in his first Rally trial and I think he'll do great.

River and Zoey hanging out at the Naperville trial.

Quick update: River did NOT get into the Rally trial in Louisville. Onofrio didn't get his entry before the trial closed. I don't know why, maybe something with the Post Office but I definitely mailed it on time.

Don't mind the NQs. I think Ruby did great. My dog will be starting agility and I think I will enter him in Rally some day, too.

River will be doing his agility nationals one day just like Ruby and I think he will do great in Rally.

I can't wait to see you and Ruby in Concord, NC.

P.S. I love Ruby's sit/down stays on the table. Her runs were awesome
