Holy Fun Day!

I dragged myself from my sick bed and went to Helena yesterday. Dear Daughter was appalled — she gave me the plague and therefore knew just how bad it was but I was determined not to miss the fun. I actually think friends — not laughter — is the best medicine.

And dogs…

This is Eddie — he is Daisy’s littermate, Holden Squeaker’s son, Sydney’s grandson, and Zoey’s great-nephew, and so on. AND he is a new NDD and DD! Congratulations to Kim T. and Eddie!

Jordan (Sparkler) is rocking it in Helena — in fact, it is hard to keep up with this girl and her humans. But I was there to see her win a five-point major (she took a four-point major the day before!) from a lovely line-up of girls! And she is passing draft tests like nobody’s business.

Marti and her crew are also having a great showing in Helena — this is Kidd (iPup) and Lili.

Jordan and Jumar are also a lovely brace team.

But Jordan is looking for an open brace partner — at over ten years, Jumar prefers to stick to the Novice level. Sparkle tried out for the job.

The Monday Wrap-up

The real reason we showed up for an agility trial with dogs not quite ready — in case this happened…

And it did!

Congratulations are in order — Elizabethanne and Pixey finished their agility championship! It was fantastic to be here to celebrate this accomplishment in person. CONGRATULATIONS TEAM PIXEY!

If you do agility — put this trial on your calendar for next year because this place is flat out amazing.

There are two dog swimming ponds here in addition to everything else.

We stayed over another night because I will be doing a Key Informant interview for a work project this morning about two hours from here; Dear Husband will hang out with dogs while I am gone, and then we will all head home.

What a great weekend!
