Izzie and me had her second ever show a couple of weeks ago at Gleniffer (what a lovely indoor arena it was). There was a lot more dogs there than at Avon, and 4 rings instead of one. We had a little bit of a rocky day, she ran past a couple of jumps and I lost my way during our agility run - but despite this we still managed to take two 1st places in the jumping and agility. Sadly though due to me losing my way and us getting time faults, we don't move up to Grade 2, but that's alright there's no rush.
Here is both of her wins (though in different formats, just to be awkward like that).

She is turning into a fab agility dog. We're off to our next show this weekend at Dundee - where we're also camping for the weekend. This should be fun, as I haven't camped as a sober adult before, and I've love to know how I'm going to straight my hair, so we'll see how it turns out!

Wow how long has it been since I posted? Not much has went on ... okay take that back. i've not had a minutes peace really. Uni is crazy and the amount of work makes me feel I'm not going to ever have a life again. Our newest edition to the family - George - is a cheeky little puppy who loves nothing more than to bite his big sister and she really doesn't like him much at the moment.

Crap, too much to do.

If I Didn't Have a Dog

If I Didn't Have a Dog

I could walk around the yard barefoot in safety.

My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free
of hair. When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like a kennel.

When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading
through fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted, without
taking into consideration how much space several fur bodies would
need to get comfortable.

I would have money .....and no guilt to go on a real vacation.

I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put
their yet unborn grandkids through college.

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down,
come, no, stay, and leave him/her/it ALONE.

My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates
or barriers.

My house would not look like a day care center, toys everywhere.

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an
extra leash.

I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, F-R-I-S-B-E- E,
W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, B-I-K-E, G-O, R-I-D-E

I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.

I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog/cat
ties them down too much.

I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading
'mud' season.

I would not have to answer the question 'Why do you have so many
animals?' from people who will never have the joy in their lives of
knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an
angel as they will ever get.
How EMPTY my life would be!
