No Classes this week

Bad day at work on Monday and wasn't up to going to class with Keegs so we just worked outside for a little bit.  It was just way to windy to work long though.

Missed Kiah's class due to a late meeting at work.  No more meetings for the group, it was our last meeting for the search committee.  Can't wait to find out who the chancellor will pick as our new campus dean.

I don't have to work this weekend, no trials either plus the weather is supposed to be decent. I plan to relax, take the K's for walks and do some sessions with the K's outside. I should start to clean up the garden too, I enjoy it and have some good books to listen to while I am working.  Maybe we will go to the club and practice this weekend since we missed classes!

Next week is our last class in the session and we will have two weeks off.  Our next trial is the end of October; I am on the wait list for one day and hope to get in since I am #23 on the list.

Green Acres Boxer Rescue-Boxer Bash 9/24/11

My great niece and I took Kiah and Keegan to the Boxer Bash in Columbus yesterday.  With all of our obedience training I was hoping that Kiah wouldn't freak out when she saw the Lure Course.  She did start screaming as soon as she saw it and they hadn't even run the course yet.

She was the first dog to run and she got the bag about 3/4 of the way, tore it up pretty bad.  They fixed it and added another bag and she got that one too. I wasn't sure if Keegs would chase it but seeing the other dogs do it made him want to.  He did pretty well but half way around the 2nd time he was pretty much done.

Kiah's screaming freaked Keegs out pretty bad and he went after her when she made that awful screaming noise.  Next year it will only be Keegs who goes; Kiah freaks so bad it scares me that she is going to have a heart attack or something.  Keegs will do well without her along and it will be more fun since I won't have to fight Kiah all the time trying to get to the lure course.

Kiah got a yellow scarf to show she was adopted from Green Acres Boxer Rescue.  When she finally noticed it after we left she looked at me like "where did this come from".   LOL, all she could think about was the Lure Course.

Q in Standard - 9/17/2011

Kiah got a Q in standard yesterday, I don't have a video but she was the only dog in her class that Q'd!!!!!, I am so proud of her progress.  Wish us luck today, will post more later.

No Q's on Sunday; a zoom in jumpers and slow as molasses in standard.  We did complete the course without obstacle faults but had a 36 second time fault.  Kiah almost ran out of the ring but stopped, took her time to come back so between that and the slow weaves was basically what brought us over.  I will post the video for the runs on Sunday.

Here is the video, please comment and let me know what you think we can do to improve.  All ideas are welcome.
