Techno Difficulties

Hi gang,

Sorry for not posting much but Mom's camera is on the fritz again and won't load pics for us! I have stories to tell and nothing to back it up... rats...

Anyway, last weekend I did good for Mom and SHE was the one making mistakes at the agility trials. I qualified in Jumpers on Saturday which made up for her mistakes in Standard that morning. Then on Sunday I decided to go even faster in Standard and ran Mom half to death. We ended up 5th in our class which was a personal best for us! woo hooo!

Josie got her first leg in Open Jumpers on Saturday and then decided the walls had rats in 'em on Sunday, so Mom had to take her out of the ring. Maybe it was that groundhog hole she almost disappeared down on Saturday. Mom had to pull her out by her hind legs, Josie just kept on disappearing down that hole! I was laughin'!...

Yesterday Josie went with Mom and her friend to a lure coursing practice in PA in the late afternoon. She came back and said she ran the WHOLE course twice!! She said Mom was in shock! Darcy the Deerhound who lives with our breeder got to run and did really well, too. I'm jealous but if I run a practice Mom says I'm an idiot in the agility ring. What -- I just love running! I can't help myself!

Here she is jumping at Louisville last month --

Maybe the camera will get over its flu and behave itself -- meanwhile have a good weekend, we'll be doing agility again up near Baltimore and it's going to be HOT weather..... here I am at Louisville last month.

Rudy! hey, even though your mom is not working at the camera issue, you have some great photos to share. Congratulations on the agility stuff, I think I might like that. Course, I'd probably also like earth dog stuff too. Yum, rats.
