Walking in the rain today.

Cruz loves to roll in the wet grass. :-)

If you listen carefully the birds are having a lovely time singing, who needs an Ipod.

Cash qualifies Crufts breed 2011

Well done Cash and Denise :-) xx

Boot camp

Is this a normal stride pattern?

Meme powering out the weaves.

For those who where unable to get a place at this years Boot camp with Nancy and Leah. It was horrible don't bother applying next year. ;-)

At 5 o clock the crows start squawking, as the sun rises up across the valley hills, time to get up to feed the dogs, allowing plenty of time before 2 1/2 hours of mind blowing training, with the sun beating your white skin brown.

If you were not on the clinics you had some time off to walk the dogs through the cross country course, bluebells whipping your now brown legs, if that's not enough to put you off, my dogs found the water jump and had great pleasure in cooling themselves off running backwards and forwards in the muddy water. lol

If not to knackered from five hours of training, dinner and games night in the club house :-)
The training was so bad Grace with Kiah went out and won grade 5 jumping at BATs, not sure a pivot was executed thou LOL, all mine got a clear round or place in their classes.
So there you have it.
I really hope to try and go again next year, just to see if they improve. ;-) hehe
A really big thanks to Leah, Nancy, Jay and Andy.
Thanks Grace and Alex for pics.

Wish agility show results

Thank you Alex for this stunning picture of my little girlie.
Sorry to all who have been checking in to see how Wish has done at her first show, I have been so busy the blog got a little neglected.
Any way back to Wish, she really has lived up to her name and has been a star.
All my concerns about not entering Mid-downs because it is a big show, indoors, very loud maybe hard for her to for cope with, well Easter show was moved into the same building due to ground conditions. I chose to run and see how she got on. I was sooooo excited to find out she came 4th in agility and 4th in jumping, totally focused and ran a dream.
The next few show where outside, to my shock this is where she came a little unsure, slowing up, looking about but still gaining clear rounds. Maybe because the shear size of the courses (somebody told me courses where built for smalls, how wrong that information was) :-)
This weekend she seems to be back on form, at Colchester show she got
2nd in com 1-3 agility her first trophy in pride of place, Vyne 5th in com 3-4 agility the top four places where grade 4 dogs. She has now got her 50 Agility points towards her bronze warrant. I really would like her to stay in grade 3 for a while as we are learning alot together in the rings.
