All-Breed Obedience Trial, Irish Setter Club

Oh, Ronin! Friday at the AKC All-breed Obedience Trial of the Irish Setter Club of Colorado. Again Ronin did not drop on recall, went down on sit-stay so NQ in Open B, and went over wrong first jump so NQ in Utility B. Other than that ... ;^).

Lots of dogs and their people are converging on Island Grove Regional Park.  The Greeley Kennel Club has shows Saturday and Sunday.  There are about 3000 dogs entered in conformation, obedience, and rally. With them are their handlers, owners, families, and the local people who will come to watch. This will be a grand time.

The 4H building is HOT. There is an air conditioner, a swamp cooler, that needs to be cleaned out and new pads installed. It can't keep up with what is going on inside.  It is nice in the shade outside, so long as the weather holds. This is the monsoon season, and the Greeley show as often as not gets some really hard rains.  There really isn't room for all the obedience dogs and owners to be inside the 4H building waiting to compete. There is no room for crating and we can't heel our dogs at sit for hours on end in the hot, stuffy building anyway. An option is the Livestock building next door, which is crowded and gets several inches of water on the floor when it storms.  Other than that, it is a great venue (so long as the weather holds). 

We intend to have fun.  Where is my army poncho? (hmm. PUP tent)
