Well... tonight I had the first night of graduation. I had entered 5 events for the evening. Advanced agility with both dogs, Novice obedience with Chipmunk, Advanced rally with Chipmunk and pre-novie brace. Here are the results....
It wasn't the best night for them. Tomorrow night it will be Dingo's night. She is entered in beginner's rally, pre-novice on leash, and showmanship. Hoping her and I do so much better than tonight went with Chipmunk. Pictures to follow after.

I graduated on June 8th, at 7 pm. Then, 2 days later I had my final high school dance. After that, my summer has been flying by so fast. I took a 2 week vacation mainly to the Grand Canyon, but we stopped at Boise to visit my future college. My move in date is August 22nd.
My future is bright. I am currently working at a vet clinic around my area. I want to become a veterinarian. Someday, I would like to own my own kennel, race the Iditarod and have a small vet practice. I don't know if I will be racing next season. I don't know what is happening with Chipmunk and Dingo. As my dad would say "they are retired sled dogs now." Something will come up tho. Gotta go!! You will hear from me soon. Dogs are graduating from 4-H next week!!
A while back I made the dissension to try to find Cinnamon and Pilot new homes. Pilot was old and did not like being left at home on every run simple because she was to old. Cinnamon was not getting as much attention as she deserved. She did not like living in a kennel setting. The other reason for re-homing them is that with one of my siblings showing interest in racing, and only being allowed to keep a small number of dogs, all the dogs that live here need to be able to pull their weight in harness. After a long time searching both Cinnamon and Pilot have found their forever homes. Pilot has gone to live in Abrams with a small family that has 2 little kids. Pilot loves the attention of little kids so I know that this is a great home for her. I recently got an email saying that she was fitting in nicely, and being well loved. Cinnamon went to live in Shawano, with a teen aged girl much like myself. At her new home she will have a poodle mix to play with every day, hopefully that dog has as much energy as she does. I am sure both of these wonderful girl will be able to fit right into their new life styles.
