Have to start - the ribbons & rosettes are currently spread out on the top of a bureau in my office and I need to move them each time I dust LOL. The programs and maps on on my desk and well, I really don't like clutter but if I put everything away I'll procrastinate!!

Oh Michelle, you would have loved it this weekend !! Barb was there with husband, son and a few dogs, there were several Sunfire dogs doing what Sunfire dogs excel at (one a MACh starting her obedience career; awesome) and I lost Towhee's focus twice :

When Barb entered the building - luckily before Towhee went into the ring :)

When a Sunfire boy walked across her path - I know because I asked if their handsome boy was Sunfire and they said yes :)

how cool that you live right there so close. It's a rare thing to have another Sunfire dog at a trial here. Although Pat Jones was showing at the last trial I was at, so that was another Sunfire dog!

I have been known to glance at a catalog, get excited when I see a Sunfire dog listed, and then realize it's my own dog's name I'm looking at :doh:

I am looking forward to meeting them at the NOI.. And seeing the two other Apollo puppies competing. I have met both Fran/Riley and Jan/Tucker both once before. I will get to spend time with Pat again which I always love! Was Barb showing anyone or was she just visiting?

Barb's husband Mike was showing Champ, her son Nate was showing his girl Breeze, but I think Barb is still training Ammo for Utility, he wasn't there that I saw.

Thanks :) My obedience club sent out the newsletter last night, and it was fun! I included some pictures of Faelan, and several for Faelan's and Towhee's kin were in the brag section as well!!

I read your previous posts and enjoyed the excitement, thanks for writing the details so we could have some vicarious thrills - ooh handler error and ouch teeter accident. Makes me feel like I was there!

Congratulations; I see how hard you work and what wonderful dogs. I'm glad you all had fun and success, Casey too :)
