Happy 4th!

Hope everyone has a fun, safe holiday!

We'll be spending ours at the DOCNA trial. Oreo is signed up for 4 runs today and 4 runs on Sunday. We'll do three standard runs, 1 snakes & ladders, 2 jumpers, 1 strategic time gamble, and we'll try to qualify for nationals with our North America Challenge run.

Hopefully Oreo can handle 8 runs. The trial is small, so the wait time between runs shouldn't be too long. I'm so excited, and am anxious to see if Oreo will meet standard course time, now that he has moved out of beginners in the standard runs.

Yesterday, I watched the videos from our first DOCNA trial for some perspective and inspiration. I left that trial feeling so good, even though we were complete disasters in our last run, and Oreo spent most of his runs scoping out the crowd. I was so happy with what we had accomplished as a team.

I mean really, will most people's dogs literally jump through hoops for them? Mine will!
