As a matter of fact . . .

. . . I don't have anything better to do than sit in the grass and blow bubbles for the dogs to chase.

Our agility trial weekend was a bit of a train wreck. Phoenix ran wonderfully. Alas, the same could not be said for my handling which was apparently non-existent. Thank doG there was birthday cake and a MACH cake at the trials because that was pretty much the highlight of the weekend! Last night I got down the bottle of bubbles from Auntie Rilda and entertained all three of us for awhile. Laughing is a good way to get rid of frustration and disappointment.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to blow bubbles and run a video camera at the same time? There's a definite learning curve. Turn up your volume so you can appreciate the malinois tooth clacks.


  1. I could hear it. Too funny. Cake was good. Your runs looked great - except for the few glitches that many of us had. Phoenix is amazing to watch and even the mistakes look good. He's such a great dog and someday, when you least expect it, it is ALL going to click for you. And when that happens - there better be some cake.

  2. LOL - you did really well holding and blowing :-) Jamie seems to think the bubbles have "gone to ground"!
