So I got to see Los Almos, and their mountains on the wrong side, confusing the crap out of me.

Buko and I went to trial for MR 1. It was more for me than him, and we did better than I thought in some areas, and whoa! thats bad, in other areas.

We started off with Buko jumping on the scorers table. Good times. Then, He was sure that this manequin was a decoy as we were going to the start of the heeling ex. So I was fighting to keep some control during the heel, not my best exersize for sure. It didn't go too badly.

Then there was the absence, (long down) This is where I got suprised, as he is really good at this. Well, apparently not when it counts. :eek: :oops:

Now by this time, Buko is full of joy, and not really paying attention. He is starting to look around for a decoy, and that is bad. real bad.

I managed to scrape through the food refusal, but he was considering eating the food, I just managed to get there in time before he screwed me yet again.

Next was the send away, and it was quite a bit away from the food refusal. Buko is getting less under control as I go along. I am full of joy at this point. Somehow, we managed to get this one right. Somehow.

Then the retrieve, and Buko is starting to wander towards where the decoys had been working, and generally showing his ass. We get to the retrieve, and I throw the little straw wreath, he goes and thinks about picking it up, picks it up, and brings it about 2 feet away, and starts to rip it apart. This is new. :roll:

On the change of position, he is sure that the Deputy judge behind me is going to allow him to bite. He does the positions, but moves forward on the first one. He was sure the guy was going to hit me, and he could get a bite.

Now we come to the really good part. Defense of handler. Lets just say, the dog decided that he would just hang out with the decoy, and wait for me to come back. 0 points, and failure.

The face attack went pretty good, the flee attack he went to the upper body, and came off with the gunfire. interesting. He looked around, and then ran back to me. (my fault here, he has never seen gunfire on the bite before)

So, he was either really good, or really bad, with no in between really. It was fun either way.

It was very nice to see everyone, and meet new people. My friend Brad Hardin went and got his BH on his dog Casper. He got a real nice medal, and a little picture frame thingy that said endeavor working dog club. Of course, he made fun of me most of the drive home.

My favorite line of an excellent post for brightening a Monday morning. :lol: :lol:

Thank you. It actually does sound like fun, except maybe for the drive home.

I was at the trial and it was pretty fun. Luckily Jeff's dog was the last MR1 entry since he started shredding the retrieve object :lol: :lol:

Good news is, I caught the mondio bug so maybe I can enter with my crazy dog next time. She is usually good for some weirdness.

Jeff, Those damn mountains, they'll screw you up every time. Anyway, thanks for the play by play. Sounds like you had a GREAT time :roll: . I want to get one of those t-shirts that say "my dog never did that before" in a bunch of different languages.

Sounds like a great time Jeff. They certainly know how to humble us, don't they! :wink:

Well, I was pretty prepared for the dog loosing it, my objective was to see if I could figure out ways to keep control, and how fast I could go between exersizes, without him just running off to find the decoy. I have a lot of work to do with myself before I can really polish the dog. I should of grabbed the retrieve object, that was my bad, I just got fascinated by the fact the dumb ass was chewing it up.

Passing would have been a bonus, but I figured that probably wouldn't happen. He gets so stinkin pumped up. Looks like we will be starting the corrections part of training for real. I have been considering using the e-collar for a while, he gets real bad if you correct with the pinch or choke collar, he will fight you over it. I might have a chance with the e-collar.

Where are pictures of you two? I know someone posted a link before, but I didn't get a chance to see. Can you post some pictures?

Good old Mr Edison.

Yup! That's hysterically funny. VERY, VERY FUNNY!!!

You have to be a bartender to enjoy those kinds of vicissitudes.

...and, yup! From your video you can tell the dog needs some correction...so he does it right the FIRST time and stops experimenting...

BTW, thanks for the great storytelling.
