About half of our club traveled to Myrtle Beach a couple of weekends ago to trial. Two of us earned our BH (Kastle included!), and Jason and Pan got their IPO I. It was hot and rainy during most of the trial. We've got some things to work on - mostly focus in the heeling (when I'm nervous), and his motions. I was ecstatic with how well he did in the long down considering that at one point after the first dog ran off field, the guy got down on the ground and patted the ground and clapped for his dog...I thought for sure Kastle would break...and I was scared to look over my shoulder in case he thought I *was* looking for him! It was supposed to be a round robin, so I was supposed to have a little more time to loosen both of us up before we went, and then we were supposed to do obedience first, and THEN long down. But, the judge knows me and likes to test my limits so off to long down first we went! Overall, I am very pleased with my fluffy pup.

Pretty awesome day for our club, we got 58/60 points. Pleased as ever with the posing...I suck at not pointing my camera remote at the camera...*sigh* lol We stayed right across the street from the beach, so Kastle and Limit got to go in the ocean for the first time. It's also the first time I've been in the ocean in 10 years. I had more fun playing in the waves with my dogs than I can remember having in quite awhile...it was utterly relaxing and just a total blast.
