It’s a beautiful morning...

Last night it was finally cool enough to work the dogs. Faith and I went for a 90 minute walk (we’re both out of shape after a quiet summer), and it felt great. 

We’ve played a little frisbee over the summer, and worked a bit on some fun agility and rally, but for the most part it’s been a write-off summer. The fencing at the training field is down, and the indoor location I was using wasn’t  available. We’ve played, and had fun, and the dogs have been my constant companions. 

This morning we woke up early, and got in another walk and a game of frisbee. These cool temperatures aren’t here to stay yet, but soon. And I’m hopeful. 

Faith will be making her Rally debut this fall. We’ve taken our time getting ready; there’s no ticking clock. I’ve seen too many dogs soured by the “race” to get titled, and I don’t want that to be us. Our debut may be a total cluster, but that’s okay. She will be ready for the venue, and that’s what I want for her.
