Today I judged *my* last K9-Kup for 2016. It was the third event of four for the summer long competition.
Gambles was not a good way to start my morning…but c’est la vie. After three runs I shook off my exhaustion and was up and running at full steam!
The morning started damp, but no rain. After lunch the weather got quite hot and because of the wet ground things turn quite muggy (as they say) on the field. I was fine, but the humidity was taking a toll on some of the dogs. That’s agility for you though.
Judging is fun. The competitors had fun – some great attitudes out there this weekend. The dogs have fun….and it is great to see their skills progressing from the first event 2 months ago!
I do believe I have been committed to retuning next year. See you then!
A once-in-a-lifetime experience has come and gone. I was…er, my dogs were…privileged to be chosen as “extras” on a movie being filmed (partly) in Ottawa.
The days were long, or I should say the nights were long, but it was fun to be included in something special. Something most people never get to experience.
I don’t know if our footage will all end up on the cutting room floor – always a possibility as our part was small – but I have been told our names will be included in the credits! Forever immortalized…sorta.
Look for it in theatres….possible a film festival in 2017.
