Today, it snowed...

This weekend we headed back to Oklahoma for an AKC trial. This trial offered a lot of runs so was really a good deal. Except that they were not real prepared to efficiently get all those runs done in a timely fashion. So Saturday was a long day and Sunday we had to scratch some runs to get home at a decent hour. So we didn't really get many more runs than a regular weekend after all. The other bad news was the camper had a leak so we had to use campground bathroom all weekend but it was pretty close so not a terrible deal. And it's already fixed!
But the good news is that Epic totally crushed it at the trial. He NQ'd his first run and then got 9 consecutive Qs! He finished three titles including his overall Scent Work Advanced and also got a high in trial and several placements including two firsts. We are still waiting on our cool HIT ribbon since they have to mail those. I'm really proud of him, I think this was his best searching he has done and was really solid. His sissy would be proud too. MAlso we had a nice spot on the lake and enjoyed some nice views despite not great weather.

We got these awesome halters for the boys. Sweets got a new collar and leash as well but I need to get a pic!
A few lovely, but non-action shots from the NW trial
The cats really love when we are doing anything with the camper.
Maze also loves the fire
We had another camping adventure last weekend. This time to Columbia for AKC nose work. It was a bit of an adventure getting to and into the campground but in the end the setting was worth it. We may not go back since it is kind of a hassle and there is no dump site, but we enjoyed the weekend. Epic had a decent trial. He picked one Q in each class and finished his advanced interior title and got a few nice placements. Now that we are going to be home a bit more and the weather is warmer and more daylight we plan to get back to agility as well as hitting the nose work more. Sweets too!

As you see Epic was also fine with the experience. Plus he totally crushed it in coursing. He finished up his BCAT on the fast cat course plus some points towards the next level.
We did take a little walk at the campground before pulling out.
Next weekend scentwork and more camping!
We also noticed the NADAC breed top ten lists were posted. I guess not many cattle dogs are running nadac (honestly I don’t see a lot of cattle dogs at any sport we attend anywhere) because even with the limited elite runs we had last year we made a few lists! Gunning for some number one spots this year!
