Wow, so little posting. I've been keeping up on facebook. Traveling all over. More ice, more snow.
A couple days it was warm enough to hike.
But most days it hasn't been over freezing. I bought a treadmill.
Strafe is not a fan but he's learning.
I got stuck an extra night in Cleveland after teaching a seminar, due to snow.
Then I got stuck 2 extra nights in Florida because of snow at home. But at least the weather down there was nice. Strafe and I had fun attending a seminar instead of teaching one for a change.
When I got home from Florida, this had come in the mail.
and I looked at the calendar. Holy crap!! I leave for my Crufts/puppy retrieval trip in just over 2 weeks! I can't believe it!
Puppies are 6 weeks old now, getting close to knowing which one will be mine. That hasn't wholly sunk in yet either.
Kiba continues to run *really* well in local AKC trials, she already has 4 QQ's and 10 total single Q's for 2014. I am not planning to run her in Reno at AKC Nationals next year, but boy do I wish the event was close enough to take her because she is trying really hard to qualify!
Strafe has been running well handling-wise but still hitting the odd bar at trials. The spacing and course design at AKC is just not his favorite.
Here is a highlight video of our fun times at the OneMindDogs seminar with Jaakko and Janita in FL
and here is a link to my YouTube account with longer, less edited videos of the courses we ran.
