Canada Cup

This past Saturday my Mom and I went to the Canada Cup to compete. Last year we did fantastic ending up with the bronze and enough cash to pay for Nationals and then some, so we thought we would try our luck again. Mom almost didn't go because she wasn't feeling up to it in the morning but off we went anyway.
As usual Royackers Kennels (where the trial was being held) hosted a wonderful day. They have the best facility for agility trials in my opinion. The grounds are kept beautiful, there is a 1 acre circulated pond for swimming (which I love!!!) they are always on time and the people are super nice! http://www.royackers.com
Anyway the courses were tough but good but my Mom was just not able to run well. She said the heat and humidity, lack of sleep and her being pregnant made her feel like a sloth. So we didn't run too well. She says she feels so bad for me as I deserve a better handler and now she is worried that she will have the same problem in 3 weeks at Nationals. What she needs to remember is that I just like to get out and play and I don't care if we do well and look terrible doing it!!!

Been so busy!!

Sorry I haven't written in awhile, but we really haven't been in the house much! The weather has been so nice and warm we spend all our time outside with Liam the 2 year old and Mom. Also a few days ago I did a big Canada Day dog sports demo in a huge park with my Mom and Chase. It was so much fun! There were a lot of people watching, and lots of loud music and bands, balloons. I did a disc trial last weekend too but I didn't win any ribbons this time out. I didn't care I still had fun!

I have a couple of photos to share with you of myself and Liam the 2 year old. I LOVE hanging out with him and playing. We play in the kiddie pool, he blows bubbles for me to catch as well he has a bubble mower which is the best. When we are really lucky we go to Grandma's house and we all swim in the big pool. Of course sometimes we just sit quiet together and eat our snack! I can't do dog sports every day so I'm glad to have him to play with.
