For those who dont know i fell over on tuesday, and badly sprained my ankle, after tearing ligaments last august im paranoid of doing it again, i fell over at training on tuesday ( blimmin terra!) so james wouldnt let me run over the week end, luckily for me i didnt, as just the general helping was eough, ive had to ice pack it after each day!!!
meg had some lovely runs with lolly, and volunteer junior handler Ro also ran her in the 1-7 class on sat, and my sister lydia ran her in collie jumping on sun.
the rest were normal really, harv demolished most of the course, NOThING like at training right now where he is doing so well! Terra bumbled in the anysize ( only had asj on sunday so she only had one run) ziggy ran with lydia, one class was just a 5 for going under a jump, the rest was weaves mainly, so lydia set the 6 up on the patio and trained them all for 10 mins each on saturday night!
daizy was daizy, thanks joy for helping me the other day - hopefully i will look at things more differently and try and concentrate on one job at a time!!!!lol!!!
Steve came along for pic taking, so hopefully when he has a minute he'll off load them on the pc..... not a hint in the slightest....honest!
MASSIVE well dones have to go to Linda & Missie, what a little star!!! 2 wins i think it was this weekend, and a second too, fab stuff! Grade 6 now!
well done the the guys and gals who had their first shows this weekend, and good luck to quest on your first show next weekend!!!

We have finally start daizy on 2 x2 weaves last night, all went well for our first session, i have to keep things short and sweet, we did 6 minutes before having a play and going back inside, she will have up to 10 mins again tonight, and see what she has remembered! I will try and video her so i can keep a progress diary running
We have booked in some lessons for both terra & daizy, so watch this space!

I had a lovely evening training with Terra with Ian out at Buckland last night, she listened and did really well, it really inspired me to think she could really be quite good! she isnt a naturally talented agility dog like some, so it will be a hard slog over the winter, but im really going to start pushing her more to get her working nicely and ready to compete next season.
Daizy also had a good session, she isnt very tug or toy orientated, so we used food and a magic pot, she was sending onto jumps nicely and onto the tunnels, so we made some good progress!
i'm holding out lots of hope for the future with these two now!
We went to gillingham show this weekend, i had to leave earlier than planned as both harv and zig had the squits, so neither ran and were confined to the camping area, ( ive just changed food from skinners to arden grange) i dont think the changover has agreed with them, so we are back onto skinners for another bag, and a more gradual changeover! We had no clears, my knee swelled up, and karen drew the short straw to run meggie for me in the agility on saturday (thank you!)
