Friday Aug 20 2010, Cinder Missiles in the Knight AD, died. She was my first truly fast dog, she taught me a lot <like fingers can send a dog across the ring to an obstacle if they twitch just right> and I wish I had been a better handler for her. I love you sweetie, hope you're having fun running agility again.
Seems like our show is cursed. Last year, I barely found a site for our trial after our usual site was booked, even though I KNOW I had given them the dates months ago. At that time, I gave them the dates for our November show, but they didn't have the calendar for that part of the year printed, so they took a note. This time I called to confirm several months in advance, to find they had lost the little paper and booked two other events in the 3 days that is my show! So, after some desperate checking, a good friend of mine came to my aid! Our show site for this event.... CMStreek in Frankston TX. Owner/Trainer Terry Dyck of CMStreek agreed to allow us to rent her facility. We'll have a covered crating area, and outdoor grass ring. (Maybe two... still trying to plot out exactly what we'll do. We may even try to hold a little fun match the night before!)
