Taking the Plunge

Well, it's time to take the plunge.  I had been sitting on the fence regarding an upcoming arena trial in High Prairie.  I've been worrying about taking Tessa simply because she is not in working shape right now.  Plus I have the added concern about her limping at a trial - I don't want people thinking I'm abusing my dog by running her lame.  But after her good work at Corey's with the additional bonus of her staying sound after her work, the decision has been made to enter her up. 

Today I hopped on the Internet to start looking for a hotel room as High Prairie is about a 4.5 hour drive for me.  The added incentive for me to get moving on this is in April.  In April is a fairly big arena trial in Calgary in conjunction with their Aggie Days.  If I'm going to make a run with the big guys (only open handlers) than I'd better get her out to some smaller trials and work out the kinks.  As there are only the High Prairie and Airdrie arena trials in between now and then it means I should go to everything I can.  Here's hoping to a good run February 28.
