There is not much happenin at Carlleen's Sled dogs since the season has ended so there is not much to blog about except major events happening with Chipmunk. So I will blog about the upcoming events and what Chipmunk and I have been doing since the end of the season.
So, Chipmunk and I have been going to my cousins house to train and practice with my cousins dogs. This means that we are going down to the river to get her over the fear of water, practicing on their agilty course (I will explain this in a bit on why) and working with her and her dogs.
Chipmunk and I have offically signed up to do obidence again, agility and showmanship. Now, we did obidence last year, so this year we are going to try our hand at rally. Also, Chipmunk also some training with agility last year but this summer we are going full handed into it... that means extra exersize for her that other dogs may not get and puts her ahead of getting into shape for the fall training.
Isdra has the yearly convention happening in Michagan and we might head on up there. Last year it was held in Green Bay... MY home town! This year we might go and meet some other jrs, and internet friends. Check out isdra.org for more information.
The May baquet for Wi trailblazers is coming up fast and we should be attending. I just need to find a ride up there. This will be a blast and a great way to meet up with the trailblazers family since the last race I did which was the Land O'Lakes race.
I have been experimenting with youtube so if you go to youtube.com and find Calleenssleddogs channel you will find other channels I have subscribed to and have liked. Then, I have created one movie but it is not all that good. Overall, I am still working on that.
So sunday, April's fools day I went to my regular 4-h meeting and the month before the leader asked me to come in and talk about sled dog racing. So I did. I know for a fact that I have 2 people interested but I can't say that they will actually race. Many people told me that they liked the talk and were surprised that I did this sport since I lived in the city. I might post some pictures. If I fail to get on here before Easter Happy Easter to everyone and I hope that training and racing went well if you are finished. In the meantime... chipmunk and I will be practicing obedience once again and hope to do well. Have a great April, hope to post soon again! :)
