Reactor Cor

Cor Disc DogI would love to try more Disc Dog! This is Cor, we met her at dog camp last September. She lives in Denver and does lots of Disc Dog! I love this shot.

She is a tri aussie, oh, over a year old now. She was 8 months last September. If I could do math I could figure that out but I’m going to leave it up to you. 😉

She is an aussie that is a bundle of energy. Not for the faint of heart, she is lucky to have gone to a performance home. She is one of those dogs that would run circles around people in a pet home. She would swim in Lake Tahoe for a long time, go for runs, work obedience and sheep, and still want more. She’s as nutty as Chase.

I can’t wait to see her again this year! Oh, and her Mom, too. 😉

Agility Coming Up

We have a 2 day agility trial coming this weekend. And, I hate to admit it, but I think I’m getting over-agilitied. Is it possible? Yeah, sometimes it is. I have this 2 day trial, then the following weekend we are going to Blackfoot, Idaho, for a four day trial.

I always have fun when I go. I’m just missing spending time at home sometimes, too. Yesterday on my day off I cleaned the basement. And man, it’s nice having a clean basement. If I spent more time at home… well, maybe I should just get a cleaning service. 🙂 I really hate cleaning. I’d have to figure how to arrange the dogs. I used to take them to the dog park, but now that we have 6, they all won’t fit in the car.

Anyway, We also have two flyball tournaments this summer. Both traveling. Then Dog Camp in September in Tahoe, another long drive. After that, I don’t think I’ll be driving for much for the rest of the year. I’m a bit burned out on driving.

Flyball Stuff

Hrmph. Flyball. Practice is fun. Going to a tournament is boggling my brain. I want to go… but the tourney is in St. George, Utah. Which is 5 hours away. Gas, Hotel, Time… all for just one singles run, and practice runs.

Well, it seems like a lot of money. But, there is one bonus. There is another tournament in Wyoming in August… and I want to go to that one! Really bad! Because a friend I met at dog camp last September is going to be there. And I’d love to see her again, and I might even share a hotel with her.

So, in order for Chase to be on a team, he has to go to a tournament and run single or do warmups. I’m not so sure I like that rule. I think he’s really be fine. He is very stable in high-drive environments. But if that’s the rule, then perhaps I’m going to St. George.

I still have a day or two to decide.

Love Camping with the Dogs

I love camping with the dogs. We haven’t gone this year, which is a bummer. Hopefully we’ll go in August. Been doing so much agility that I haven’t had a weekend off. And when I do, I swear, I get sick. Today it’s the stomach flu. Yuckola.

Anyway, we own all our own camping gear. We used to have a tent, but now we have a popup trailer that we just love. But it can be expensive to own camping hear, especially when, like us this year, you don’t go all the time.

One thing I would LOVE to rent is a dog GPS until. I have seen them advertised. Someday they will be tiny, injectable, and I’ll have them not only in my own dogs, but all the rescue dogs, too. Then some will probably want people to get them, but I won’t get into that, this is a dog blog!

Seven Random Facts: List meme.

Okay, I’ve been tagged. Seven random facts about me. Well, I have a lot of random dog facts, LOL. Big Bucks Blogger tagged me. So I better get going on this! 🙂

  1. I have an AAS in Computer Science.
  2. I got my first dog, a lab / weimereiner mix, when I was 8 years old. Her name was Jackie.
  3. I will be 40 years old this month on the 26th.
  4. I have a sun tattoo on my left ankle and I want more tattoos! Just need to find some good tattoo designs.
  5. I love superhero movies.
  6. I had a rabbit when I was a kid, her name was Jingles. I also had two parakeets and my dad kept fresh water aquariums.
  7. I really dislike trimming my dogs’ toenails!

Now I have to find 7 people to tag to continue with this. Ugh! Who shall I choose! I will post my choices in a bit. 🙂 I might not get 7 people.
