Great job!! I totally missed the 2nd video, so sorry. Great job Xena with the dumbbell and ignoring the dog in the next ring. I had to laugh though cuz I could very well see that being us at ABC if we went for it this year. You just never know sometimes, lol. He was very handsome tho, but I'm very impressed with X's attention. :thumbsup:

It's funny, I didn't even realize how much MORE she's watching me these days until I saw the video.  I mean, I know she's improved, but the percentage of time that she's actually heads up heeling was more than I expected in a competition setting.

Thomas is VERY handsome, I simply adore that boy! If you look in the ABC thread, he's the 4th photo in the second photo post.  He was a contender for the Forever Young award, and rightly so!

You know, it was funny, some of the "newly graduated Novice A" handlers had new dogs in the ring and before ABC, they were joking about how they'd be the entertainment - but all their dogs really did quite well. They were still green, but did a pretty darned good job and kept their goofiness to moments instead of minutes.  :thumbsup:

I think I saw Thomas mentioned in the ABC Page on FB. He is definitely very handsome. :smitten:

She really is keeping that head up more and watching you. You both have come a long way. It's gotta feel sooooooo good, eh? ;) Thinking back to the trial where the AC kicked on right above her and seeing her lack of reaction to Thomas, you should be VERY proud!!

Oh yeah, feels really good! And then a couple compliments from the folks who've been at it a long time and I'm  :blush: ... it's oddly humbling, and pushes me to train even more.
