Thanks guys!   I'm pretty proud of her.  Still trying to sort my plans/goals for the rest of this year, but she's done so well and she's so much fun.

 

Breed wise - she really, really looks papish sometimes.  Sometimes kind of like a sheltie.  One woman is convinced she looks like a corgi, but frankly I think it's because (to me) she's got a pretty chi-like body - shorter legs, deeper chest, but not so much so that she's in corgi territory. 


Whatever she is, she's AWESOME.

Congratulations!

 

Thank you!  I'm really proud of how things are coming together for us.  I feel like we're starting to figure things out.  I still need to get Chances sorted, but that's about ME learning mostly.  Distance is FUN, though!

Kylie was dragging butt - this was the last run of the show 'n' go for her  and she wasn't energetic even at the start (busy weekend)-  and there are a couple of bobbles on my end, but I am so happy with this.  


So, so happy. 

 

We've had major weave struggles.  Having her get 12 offside weaves somewhere away from home- even as slow as she was there - is a huge accomplishment.

^^^ I'll second that, Kylie is so adorable!

 

I had to look up show 'n' go, I didn't know what that was.

Thanks, guys, she really is pretty stinking cute. 

 

I probably should have used a more generic term - but I love the danged things, even when they're a Sunday evening after a really full weekend with a low drive dog :P   Reallyreally useful.  I even took Bug and played with HER in the ring a little bit (With hoops and tunnels)

Kylie got her Elite Regular title today. 

 

I am completely baffled by that, but there we are.

congratulations! I think her ribbons weigh more than she does -- they are certainly bigger than she is.  :)

Thanks!  She's no Tippet, but she's a neat little dog.  Also a snot, but yanno.  I'm proud anyway.

OH! I forgot I have video:

 

 

The first run chops off right at "I have no idea where I am or am going", the chances run is kind of a disaster, and there are only 4 total runs out of 6 from 1 day, and there are DEFINITELY mistakes, but we've improved a lot I think. 


Also got our Novice Weavers and Open T'n'G  titles this weekend, and 2/3 of the way through Open Jumpers.  Pretty successful all around.

 

Mostly, though, I'm proud that that jumpers run?  Was run SIX of the day for her and she's historically gone 'naaaah' after about 4 runs in a day because she's always stayed a little wound at trials.  This one she actually slept in her crate between and that seems to have helped.

Thanks!  It was definitely a good weekend, even with the sometimes terrible weather.  Waiting on the trial photographer to get the pictures up so I can buy them + the ones from the trial before last and post everywhere in the world.

Aw, thanks.  Her eyeliner is definitely stunning - and I'm glad you have fun watching the videos.  It's taken me forever to be able to watch them without just being frustrated.  All *I* see are my mistakes.

Irene is *incredible* with that camera, man, and I swear every set of Kylie she takes - I like more.
