We had a crazy weekend, made crazier by the fact that I managed to catch a cold last week that knocked me perhaps not flat, but at least sideways.
Amongst other things, DD and Dakota had a Junior Agility competition on Saturday. It was a very small showing of kids (only three kids and four dogs) so it passed quickly (for which I was grateful). DD did pretty well. though she had her first "NQ" (non-qualifying) round because Dakota got distracted by something and wouldn't come back on course, and Sarah grabbed her. You can't touch your dog in real agility, so was DQ'd (disqualified).
Their absolute fave run was the Tunnel Game, because it's just running -- though Dakota missed one of the tunnels (it's actually a handler error, but it was minor):
Her next fave is "Dealer's Choice" because your dog can't make a wrong move -- there is no set course. It's all about points -- each obstacle is worth a certain amount of points, and the person with the most points at the end wins.
However, between being sick and not at the top of my game, it being the first of the month (which is a nightmare for me), and being gone most of Friday and Saturday, work has backed up terribly, and I'm completely and massively behind.
I'm beginning to think this will be the usual for me anymore -- something that is very stressful for a Type A person.
The "good" news for me is that it's raining and will be through Wednesday, so I can work on my computer without feeling guilty for not being outside. It does make the dog a little nuts, but we'll manage.
I should be able to make time to visit blogs for a little while today. I won't be able to get to them all, but will do my best!
Have a great day. :-)
