We finally made it to ASR training in Spartanburg, SC, last night and the good news is that Achilles hasn't forgotten what a helper looks like or what to do with one. :wink:

We had a great time and got home around 11:30 (thanks to Kristin -- my brand new Durgano's transmission went out for the 2nd time since we bought it May 29th adn she went 2 hours out of her way to drive us home last night after my roadside assistance told me to just take a cab -- I was 100 miles from home). Achilles is still asleep at 9:30 AM -- usually he's already bugging me to play.

Now we gotta work on that obedience...

And here's proof!

They're a little dark, but as you can see, he will definately bite! :D

I would have gotten more, but I was down on the field with Jak at the same time (2 decoys) and was just able to snap these when we ran back to the car and I got Jak in his crate. Achilles did very well for a "weak nerved showdog" :roll: wearing a sissy purple leash! :wink: :lol:

It's good to hear that the dog training went well. The CSRA-ASR club will be there next Saturday and I hope to meet you there. Matt Hammond will be coming and he is a certified decoy for the ASR and he and I are the founders of the CSRA-ASR club. Coming with us will be my son/decoy Jay Lyda with Gretchen GSD, Andrew and Jackie Shults with Abbie-boxer and Diesel-Mal (he is for sale), Amber with a Dobe, Kristen with Lokie-GSD, Tamara with Zuke-Dobe and maybe a few others.

Fix that transmission, you need to be there. :D :D

HEY, I'll have you all know that purple is the color of royalty 8) .

Forget fixing the transmission. That car has exactly 450 miles on it. It had this same problem at 34 miles (I'd owned it 24 hours). I want the dang thing exchanged! I should be getting a loaner car Monday so as long as no more tragedy strikes, I intend to be down there on the 22nd!

You know I'm just giving you a hard time about the purple leash and all, Stacia. :p
Think we should get him a pink one for next week?

Forget the collar, get a flash for the camera.

And his collar is brown LOL. It's the leash that was purple (he was borrowing it from Andi b/c his leather is too long for agitation and I can't find his nylon anywhere...I bet the kids are using it for a jump rope).

Not ONLY was it late, as Stacia said, but I was at least 50 feet away taking the pictures, Jeff. This camera has a 10X zoom on it, but I've yet to hear of a camera with a flash that will reach that far away! PLUS, the field light wasn't on. With my old camera, even with the light on, all I could get from that far away at that time of evening was black, with maybe an eyeshine. :p Sorry your old eyes had trouble seeing them. :-({|= :lol: :lol: I'll try to get closer next time so the flash will actually hit the dogs.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww don't. His pigment looks so much darker w/o the flash :wink: .

I think the camera took awesome pics under the conditions. Mine would've been a blurry black blob...(say that ten times fast :lol: )

Also, the purple leash is clearer when you click and enlarge. :lol:
That's not nice Connie. :eek: . You're gonna give that doggie a complex. Although in Germany purple is a GUY color....

Jeff, we gotta get you a high resolution screen on that 'puter :D
