Fantastic weekend with my friend and her young dog. The weekend was fun, Fin got another Steeplechase and took 2nd on day two. Overall I felt my handling was good (maybe a bit too much babysitting still), just minor things took us out of q'ing for most runs.
GP was a tough course. I could NOT believe we made it though the 17th obstacle and I made a HUGE mistake. In my mind we had it, and I stopped working "every jump" and Fin drifted out a little too far and ran around the last jump. AHHHHHHHHHH! I laughed and told her what a great dog she was, because, she is a great dog! Then once I put her away, I wallowed in self pity for a short while until I remembered Agility was fun. Other than that one moment of mental let down, the rest of the weekend was fast and furious.
We also walked uphill a bunch of times. Since I didn't have my body bugg on, I have to estimate so my friend and I agreed on mileage for the weekend. I'm going conservative with 4 miles. That added to my 3.5 hike this morning (thanks Laura and Laurie), I'm at 14.5 for the month leaving me with only 16.5 more to go and it is only January 9th!!!
Santa Rosa USDAA in two weeks. I am really excited about going. Looks like it might rain but we are indoors for the trial so won't effect the runs.
The one thing I am looking forward to most....Deanna's soup. She makes a mean soup.
