    Dragged my camera along to the trial today and got some fun shots, all in manual, very few edited much except for cropping. :D Yay! And of course I had to share. ;)

    Lots of malinois today - Aeri made 4! This is one of them, not Aeri.

    Nothing amazing (specifics are always posted at www.facebook.com/TeamMenapode), but respectable given that it was their first competition since February (Kes) and last October (Aeri) and their first competition wearing their vests - both were about 2-3 feet off their normal jumps from last season. :) I thiiiiiink Aeri finished her Junior title yesterday, and is only 2 away from her Senior, so I think she'll be coming to Regionals with me. :)

    Here's a pic a friend took of Aeri on the dock - not sure if I'll get any of Kes since I don't think they have a dedicated photographer for the event.

    That is a really cool pic of Aeri! I really need to hit some DD events this year. Dekka has a couple of legs and more importantly LOVES it.

    Heck with a photographer, I want video of your guys ;)

    Great pics! The dogs all have so much fun! I really wish I had gotten into dock diving with Solo, he would've loved it.

    I know a girl up here with that collection of dogs, lol! (A few more now as well though).

    Well no more pics today, but I thiiiiink *both* dogs finished titles: Kes got another Turbo Speed Retrieve leg. :)

    Aeri got her first ever SR leg (in Express with a time of 12 seconds and change, but that includes her trotting to the end of the dock and then hopping from there lol) and a 4th (?) Senior jump in BA today as well! :)
