Rally On Again

So I know I wrote a couple of days ago that things were starting again for the boys last Friday ... but life makes things difficult sometimes. I've got this nasty cold, so for the past while I haven't been able to see through the blurry eyes or tilt my head any lower then the horizon without dripping nose nasties. (Too much info? Sorry.) So Sunday was a bit of a gong show at Rally practice and I opted to skip agility Sunday night in favor of a hot toddy and a blanket with a box of Kleenex.

Tonight drop-in Rally sessions started again, so the boys finally got a real workout. We ran through a couple of Advanced and Excellent courses and they did wonderfully! After nearly a month of no "formal" Rally practicing, they remembered all the tricky stuff. Both boys nailed the jumps (high and broad), which were a bit of a touchy subject in the past, especially for Gio. Weaves, moving stands/downs, and back up 3 steps were beautiful! I couldn't have asked for more after having been away from it all for a month!

Just a side note ... if I could get everyone to cross your fingers and send good vibes my way tomorrow at about 2pm Central. That's Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 14:00 hours CST. Thanks!

Hope you're feeling better soon. I found your blog through the link on Gio's dogster profile. It's been fun reading it so far, and I really like the videos with the clicker!
