Valentines weekend, and Rog & I finally managed a weekend away for 2, without dogs and not in a caravan! It was a real spoil ourselves weekend in a very posh hotel overlooking the marina in Dartmouth. The service was amazing, the food gorgeous and we had a lovely relaxing time. Talked loads without a wet nose shoving itself under your arm pit, or a toy being dropped on your lap, and had fun being a couple.
A week later and we have taken Nellie the caravan over to Taunton for her yearly service, after cleaning the green scum off the outside where she has been standing for 4 months. I have started running and getting Lily & me fit and ready for the show season. 2 Km yesterday and 1.5 today, and surprisingly not bad! My puff is better since the cigarettes have gone down and I really enjoyed the 1-1 time with Lily.
At training on Thursday Olli was amazing. He is really maturing and developing his skills. Amazed me that he recalled through weaves to a tunnel as its not something I have really practiced with him, and the other way he flew through the tunnel and straight into the weaves perfectly every time. So looking forward to his progress this year as I think he will surprise some people.
Dave has been for a couple of runs with all the dogs including Cove this week and its been good. Wearing a muzzle does mean that he cant bite Ollis elbows, or nip anyone when passing but he does head butt them well! Much better though. We also took Dave & Cove to the town again yesterday and they were very good, especially Dave who walked past numerous different sized, shaped, coloured dogs without a murmur!
So we have 5 weeks before our first show, and a few little jobs to do getting the caravan ready, and lots of training workshops for Lily & Olli to make sure we start well, and a whole season to look forward to.
Valentine now seems an age away.
