If You're Perfect

I was reorganizing my IPOD yesterday and came across this song.
I know Alanis Morissette isn't how you'd think I'd like, but I actually have two of her CDs.

For some reason this song made me think of the Ames Trial coming up this weekend.
We have a couple dogs running for their MACHs, we have newer dogs beginning
their agility careers in Novice, and of course we have our most 'seasoned'
dogs running at various levels.

As you set your 'personal goals' this weekend and set your performance criteria, be sure to keep in mind that you are a team! What happens out on the course is as much your responsibility as your partners. Make sure you are the same handler on the course as you are in practice.
Look for the things you did well together, as well as things you need to polish.

Most importantly, remember we have the BEST dogs in the world!
There will be other days and other trials, so do your best and let the 'bars' fall where they may.
(OR NOT!!! G)

Have fun...but don't feel like you have to be PERFECT!

  1. I'm looking forward to the week-end. I'm also looking for all the novice dogs starting their journey. And hoping to see a couple MACH's. Good luck to everyone. However, if things go awry on a course - it will be the little white dog's fault!!! (VBG) Go "orange crew".
