The Quest for RAE

Ok, Priscilla has done Rally since she finished at under 2 years of age.

She loves it as do I.  After finishing her RE, I wasn't happy just sitting back with that.  I wanted more letters. 

Easy right?  10 double Q's in Excellent and Advanced.

Ok, so you enter her at the Nationals - to see how she will handle 2 runs in a day.  Beautiful!  she loves it!

2 legs down. 

Oooh - look, local shows!  So you enter those at $55.00 a pop.  She gets 2 more legs.  You are starting to get tired...6 more times of THIS?

Then on a rainy cold day over Memorial Day weekend, on a muddy Advanced B course with a lake conveniently placed next to the Moving Side Step Right sign, in your t-shirt and shorts (NOT proper attire for the weather - stupid Today in New York weatherman) the dog takes a leak.

In the Ring.

She NEVER did that. 

She looks at you with those big sad eyes "I told you I hate the rain".


So you drain your bank account on sympthay shopping and go home...only to be rewarded days later with a nasty sinus infection and a 50 dollar doctor bill for the office visit and 2 precriptions that you cant be out in the sun with...which blows your plans for Rallying on Sunday.

I'm a vampire this weekend watching weekend tv.  Priscilla is curled up at my feet.  I think this was a sign we were going too fast?  Probably.  I need to sit back and enjoy my summer! 

I am planning on entering West Springfield...that is if my mom doesnt grab another set of Bon Jovi tickets.  (eeee).  :D
