where the tails wag
I missed a few goals but met more for this past year.My goals are
For Casey, perhaps some of the optional titles but mostly keep him happy and fit as he enters his 10th year
Agility Novice and Open titles
A litter of healthy, happy and high potential pups - performance and conformation
Agility Novice titles (she's almost ready)
CD (she's almost ready) and perhaps optional titling classes
A few of my goals shifted last year but I am happy with the progress we have made and the happy working attitudes of all of my dogs. May 2011 continue to be successful
Casey is healthy and happy, He regularly attends agility class and goes on our round abouts while training, he hikes most days and moves freely and joyously
Faelan earned his NAP, CDX and GN titles, he probably could have earned his OAP title if I had not overscheduled him this past weekend and decided to concentrate on the Grad Novice. He earned 2 JH legs and tried very hard at a few other tests - he may go back out next year.
Alas, Towhee was not a mom this year. But she did earn her RN title, and is entered in a few Novice trials for early next year. There were no CCA events close enough this year, so this goal will be shifted to next year. Due to a few things, Towhee has missed a lot of agility training this past year and hated the flooring at the Cluster so I choose not to stress her and make her run - honestly, she will happily roll in the most noxious things but she kept looking at her paws in disgust and shaking them. Kind of funny since she has an expressive face, but she did not earn her Novice Agility titles.
Faelan and JWW - well I need to teach him either distance or slow him down some (not), He will add the JWW titles in rapid order I think, once he can run that fast and still 1) keep bars up and 2) process my cues in a timely fashion LOL
