Who's going to Nationals? ME ME ME!

Why am I so giddy? Because my vacation request at work was approved and I will be going to Border Collie Nationals this year. I am SO EXCITED. I've really been waiting for this opportunity for some time, and decided this year I'm just going to do it. The hotel reservation has been made. Just need to buy some plane tickets..... I don't believe I will be bringing any dogs with me this year unfortunately, as that is financially not in the cards. Next year of course, as it will be in Oregon! A hop, skip, and a jump away from Northern California.

If you'll be at Nationals this year be sure to look me up. I can't wait to put more faces to names!

Things have been so busy...

Ahhh... things have sure been busy! It seems like it's at the height of the Fall show season and I have lots of projects going on. But we shall carry on, as always! In the next month things will calm down again... and then get a little crazy ;)

We went to the Border Collie Club of Greater Los Angeles' (BCCGLA) specialty show recently and had a blast! I love specialty shows as it's a great chance to see lots of great border collies in one location and meet up with friends from distant places you don't get to see as often.

Presston took a 2nd in Open Dogs at the specialty, and a 3rd and 1st the other two days.
Penny took a 4th and 3rd during the specialty, and I believe high placements the other two days.

Ok I had the throw this one in there... a picture of Penny as a wee pup before she came home to me. Isn't she the cutest?? She's growing into quite the girl!
