Missed my old performance dogs, as buddies and sad not to have an Agility partner for this trial, and they had no obedience which Elliott and I have been practicing!
Look forward to the Incredible Dog challenge which will be our next outing June 10-11 at Del Mar Both Charlie and Elliott qualified, we should have fun , Livingston would be proud!
