No, my husband handles milo. I am the support person, meaning I potty the dogs, videotape the runs, exercise the dogs and play with them before the run starts. Its fun and you get to meet tons of people with beautiful dogs. There are lots of fun runs organized by the various dog clubs where people bring their dogs and do as many runs a day for a small fee. Its not a competition and you dont get ribbons. And sometimes we bring food and hang out all day. Its a great way to socialize even when the weather is bad.
So, Milo did his first run today, excellent standard, and he blew his contacts, the dog walk and the A frame. Jef was very angry and walked off the run. I 'd say Milo deserved it because he knows better than that. He put Milo in the truck and we left. Jef has never done that and hopes he never has to do it again but a lot of people there understood that. The dog has to know that if he doesnt do contacts, he doesnt get to play. We are going back for the open jumpers run this afternoon. By the way, it was cold and rainy.
