So we finally got a good run of trials scheduled...agility is crazy popular here and even getting into trials is competitive...not to mention the trials themselves! But we had a string of luck and managed to get into trials 3 weekends in a row which is unprecedented for us! So what happens? Mira goes into heat on Friday. A couple weeks earlier than expected. Had to pull from all three trials. And to make matters better...if this last interval is consistent...then her next heat should start smack-dab in the middle of next year's national specialty for the breed. Which we were planning to attend. Grr! Argh!
