National Specialty - Here We Come!

All the premiums are up on the CWCCA website for the 2010 National Specialty in Gettysburg, PA.  I printed off agility and conformation entries and filled everything out yesterday.  The agility trials don't open until Feb. 17th so I won't need to get those in the mail for a bit.  The conformation entries can go any time until March 31st.

Moira and Conner will be entered in agility this year.  No, I haven't run Conner in agility before but he's a sweet boy and generally very biddable so I don't think that will be an issue.  The bigger question will be if he's ready for his first trial.  I'll have to rely on Karen to continue working with him until the National.

Sam will be entered in Veteran Sweeps 11 years old + and the regular Veteran class for 11+ dogs.  Sam's entry will be dependent on how he is feeling come April.  This winter has been a little harder on the old man.  We've had colder temps and all the times he sacrificed his body for a good time are coming back to haunt him a bit.  He's on supplements and I hope to get him back into a schedule for acupuncture and maybe even get him doing some swimming to help with his conditioning.

Now to put aside all the $$ I'll need to finance this week long extravaganza.


  1. Agility and Rally for us! Plus a couple of the dinner events, vendor shopping, hotel for a couple of nights.....Your right, better start saving up some extra bucks! But I am oh-so-psyched!
