Auggie was entered in both jumpers and standard, both days, for his first trial. (At the time FAST wasn't a class yet.)

Payton is only entered in jumpers both days for his first trial, but part of that is because a) he's not solid on contacts yet and b) it's the local trial but it's indoors on their crappy floor and I really don't want to run my dogs on that floor. We are going just for fun and whatever happens happens. As long as he doesn't run out of the ring and pick a fight or something. For our next trial after that, at the end of July, he is entered in both JWW and standard both days... but I'm thinking of pulling him because of money issues. I entered him knowing if I didn't like how his contacts were I would pull him anyway.

The nerves get better. The first time I ran Auggie I was so nervous and I almost threw up on the teeter. No joke, I almost heaved in the ring. It took a good long while before I felt comfortable with it, but the last couple years of his career we just had fun with it. It didn't matter if we Q'd or not. I was just playing with my dog. I am freaking out about running Payton for a myriad of reasons, the biggest being that I am about to come smack in the face to the reality that I am running Payton now, and not Auggie, and I will probably never run Auggie again. And I don't want to face that. I have no idea how I'm going to feel when I'm actually there and on the line though. Nervous? Excited? Will I cry? I don't know. I'll find out soon enough...
