Upcoming trials

Thank goodness it's fall.  Though, we had a spectacularly cool summer, but,very few herding trials :0(
Oct 2/3 is an AKC trial on my home turf.  The trial is being held where I work my dogs. I put all 3 dogs in advanced B (field) and Yoko in advanced A (arena).  I will take my trialer over and have a blast.

I have to miss the fun trial in Porterville over the 9th and 10th, because of darn ol' work.

Then I'm taking off for Florida to visit Dad.  I will be there for 6 days in order to give my brother and his wife some respite and of course, to visit Pop.. :0)

Oct 23/24 Another fairly local AHBA trial.  Again I'm taking my trialer and plan on having a ton of fun.  And, we may even talk Wayne into trialing Jet in the ranch trial. 

Oct. 27-31 Elk Grove (5 1/2) hrs. away is a USBCHA sheep dog trial with a double lift.  I'm taking the girls and I'm taking the trailer on it's first long voyage.

Nov.6/7  USBCHA Lindsay trial.  Range ewes. Taking the trailer...only about 3 hrs. away.

Nov. 21/22  USBCHA Dunnigan Hills...about 6 hrs. away  Thinking about staying at motel for that one.
Plus, I'm going to have to call in sick at work.  Bummer. You gotta do what you gotta do.

Dec. 5/6  USBCHA Coalinga trial.   Range ewes. Yoko may not be ready for Coalinga, but going anyway.  4 hrs. away.

Dec. 31Jan 1/2   USBCHA in Campo.  Thankfully, I got the holidays off to go 4 hrs. away to this trial.  Of course, I'll have to work Christams Eve and Christmas to be able to go.  Sigh.

The things we do for love.

Life is short, and as we get older we realize, yep, if you want to do those things, well, you've just got to do what it takes.
