Samba had a good day at Concord, getting her first rally leg, and going Reserve Winners Bitch. Reggie said she would have won if he hadn’t stepped on her foot. 🙂 (We didn’t see that happen, not sure if he was kidding or not.) I am thrilled with how well she did with all the chaos of Concord– 1500 dogs, hundreds of people, being groomed and handled by folks she only met briefly a couple of weeks ago. She is exhausted, and so am I. All 3 of us took a 2 hour nap, woke up to eat, and probably won’t be awake much longer. She is such a good natured dog, just rolling with the punches, wanting to please. I was a bit more out of sorts than I would have liked for rally– hopefully that will be better tomorrow.

This weekend we drove 1000 miles to get a puppy.

I think we got the best damn one. Anywhere.

Solstice is doing a great job passing the torch on to Lola, and will be able to go in peace, knowing that Bri and I will have someone to make sure we take walks on the beach and spend at least a little time offline sometimes.

Speaking of which, Lola is sitting on my shoulder biting my nose, which is my cue to go frolic in meatspace for a while.
