A Busy Weekend

Spring has come early to the Midwest.  Terry finished the other two runs with patio blocks on Saturday morning - boy do they look nice and so easy to keep clean.

I ventured to the dog show in Dubuque Saturday morning.  Gibbs was WD/BOW for point #2.  Gina pulled a toenail, so I was not able to show her.  Hillary was BOS, so very close to her Grand Championship.

I had a phone call from Mary Gail Holcombe with some very scary news of an experience in her motel room in Little Rock, AR, this past weekend.  McGee ingested meth in the room and spent Friday night through Sunday at an emergency vet with IV fluids, flushing his system.  Mary Gail reported Monday night he was doing so much better, but still was not McGee yet.

Cheryl Brown reminded me that Spencer won his 2nd major towards his Grand Championship two weeks ago.  Cheryl is having fun with Spencer making the transitions between conformation, obedience and agility.  Spencer is a lot of fun!

Better finish packing - I hope I have wonderful news to report from the National, but realistically, I hope to have fun!

Agility News from Tennessee

Cheryl Brown had a good weekend last weekend. She reported that Felix ran all four of his runs cleanly. He was overtime in both Jumpers runs.   He did get his 9th and 10th Standard Q and finished his MXP3
Jackson only Q'ed once on Saturday in Jumpers. This is really weird. Since I brought him back into AKC last June, he has been a little Q'ing machine. The good thing is that he absolutely nailed every set of weaves including two off-side sets of weaves with really hard entries. 

Cheryl also was very excited that Spencer earned his CGC a couple weeks before. 

Congratulations to Cheryl and the boys.

The weather in the Midwest has been unseasonably warm and sunny.  It has inspired us to start some landscaping projects early.  We managed to get patio blocks laid last weekend, completing 1/3 the project, so we finish it and move on to the other two similar projects before the weather gets too warm.

Local shows this weekend and getting packed to leave for the National on Tuesday.  Lots to do, hope we can bring home a point or two and still have time to do all the things that need doing.
