Okay, I'll admit it, I love BUZZ LIGHT YEAR,
from the movie Toy Story. 
There are lessons to be learned in these cute movies,
if we only listen.  

The title of the post is one of Buzz's most common quotes.  The reason I love Buzz, is that he's always willing to keep on going, no matter what.  He might get down, he might mess up, but he always picks himself up, dusts himself off, and keeps on trying.  Seeker's like that, he's a good little buddy!  Buzz also has some of the best quotes!

For example, the word 'infinity'.  That's the number of ways you can screw up an agility course!  You would think that after awhile, you'd run out of ways...but 'oh nay nay', there's always a way.  We were in Rochester this weekend, and we found several different ways to mess things up.  Some of it was him, some of it was me.  I'd say we were pretty even.  Unfortunately that left us with an 0/6 weekend, which thankfully, doesn't happen too often.  When you're hauling the mail over 26" jumps, you don't have time to make any adjustments, it's over before the fat lady even warms up to sing. 

Some of Seeker's thoughts over the weekend.....(Buzz Quotes)
I think they are secret 'Face Book' friends!

Right now, poised at the edge of the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet! I alone have information that reveals this weapon's only weakness. And *you*, my friend, are responsible for delaying my rendezvous with Star Command! 

 (AKA - I'm not giving information fast enough) 

Mine? My fault? If you hadn't pushed me out of the window in the first place... 

(Yes, we'd been working on our 'running a-frame' 
and NOT on out 2/2 dog walk)
Don't talk to me about importance! 
Because of *you*, the future of this entire universe is in jeopardy! 

(Those 'off course' tunnels?  
What do you think we were running into after the A-Frame?)

Sheriff, this is no time to panic. 

(As Seeker takes the 'off course' tunnel in Jumpers)

 Are you saying you want to lodge a complaint with Star Command? 

(Seeker's dropped bar in Standard.
Yes, actually, I would like to complain!)

One minute you're defending the whole galaxy, and, suddenly, 
you find yourself sucking down Darjeeling with... 
Marie Antoinette and her little sister. 

(Seeker thinks the courses should be longer, when you finish a standard run
in 34 seconds, he thinks he's just a warming up!)

As always, there were SUCCESSES in every run.  There were also things, we obviously need to work on. I also need to be sure to 'round' my training vs. becoming obsessed over ONE THING!  

Speaking of Successes!  

Carrie and Addie were 6/6 (That's THREE DQ's!!).  They were on FIRE, with firsts, 
seconds and I think one 3rd place placements.  

Terry & Rip got DQ Number 17 toward the 20 needed for her MACH. 

Bill and Kruz got another PAX DQ. 

Michele and Packer got both Excellent FAST courses and a Jumpers as well. 

Jeff and Bea had a great weekend!
They also had a couple heart breakers involving the last obstacle.  UGH!!! 

Here's Seeker's runs from (today) Monday.  A bar down in standard, as he didn't hold his 2/2.
In Jumpers the first time through the tunnel was an 'off course'.   I guess it was just TOO TEMPTING!

I love his weave poles.
I love being able to trust him enough to leave him.  

I love his start line and his set up.
I love to look back knowing he's there and ready.

Sometimes when I look at him set up and ready to go,
I don't want that moment to end. 
He's so cute, I'm looking at him....
he's looking at me.......
I almost don't want to release him at all.

  He really was a very good boy!
