Albuquerque, New Mexico Trip

Back from trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Visited with my sisters and brother-in-law (Jill, Vivian and Ken). Ronin is solid in Utility--He placed with two 2nds and a 3rd in the A Class. We need to work on his fronts and finishes. He was OK in Open B, but twice he sat on the "Drop on Recall" rather than going down. The third day we fixed that ("No sit, go down, OK, Got it, Jon"). Then on the "Long Sit Stay with Handler Out-of-sight" that meme kicked in ("No sit, go down, OK") and he went down after only about 10 seconds. Well, OK, we were practicing for entering into UDX competition. We know what we need to work on.
