Sweaty

Well, summer achievement number one unlocked - we survived the July trial. Keeping in mind that apparently it got up to a whopping 80 degrees today up there, it felt SO HOT. Certainly as hot as I want to be. Sunlight is my nemesis, that's for sure. It's this time of year that I really …

Last Hurrah

Any trial in July can be iffy, and Ridgefield is like an oven when it gets hot. I was thinking it was getting so hot this afternoon ... it was 77. Heh. Yeah, Summer trialing, it's not for me. I wanted to do a last hurrah with the dogs before Summer break though, and we …

Aftermath

There are still a few fireworks going off tonight, but, in general, I'm calling Hubbard not too patriotic - it's been relatively mild in the fireworks department.

Fenzi Academy Camp

USDAA Weekend

They had some really fun courses at this trial, way more interesting than AKC, so that was fun. The trial ran well, nice to see all the USDAA folks I never see otherwise, and it didn't get TOO hot. A good trial, I look forward to my next USDAA trial ... whenever that may be. …
