Is it really that time of year again, I guess so given the humidity levels. I am sorry for being gone for so long, but I will give you an update and several interesting things have happened. First off lets introduce the new friend Pepe. I acquired Pepe at the Antigo race in February. Sam is getting old and could no longer keep up with the team, so Pepe is here so that Sam can experience the joys of retirement. Pepe was breed by Kim and Phil so I know that he has a good background. At this point in time he has been here for several months and is settling in nicely. I have only run him on the team a few times, given that we got him at the end of the season, but when I have had the chance to run him he has done wonderful. As it is he will most likely end up running wheel on my team next year, as this is where I feel he will be able to help us the most. So welcome Pepe.
It is summer and that means that it is dog training time again. This year again I am training Taruk. He is improving wonderfully and we are hoping to attend a local fun match in the middle of July. We are also planning on making the trip to the state dog show so that I can show off my wonderful boy in: obedience, agility, rally, and showmanship. It should be an interesting show season and hopefully we will succeed in getting qualifying scores. Now we just have to work our tails off so that we are ready in time.
As I am done with school I have had a lot of time to start planning for next season, I have a pretty good idea of what races I want to run. I will post a list of these races when we get closer to the start of the season as I do not have dates on all of them yet. As far as other exciting news Carlleen is back in state so spending time with her has become easier again.
Hopefully I will be able to update you again soon, in the mean time enjoy the summer weather and remember only three more months until training season comes around again.
