What are we up to now? Well, this is the first weekend of our six weekends of sports in a row. All of us have something going on at some point in the coming weeks. Today it is nose work camp. Bailie and I are headed up north as we have done for several years now. I’m in charge of packing. Since we never know what to expect from the weather, I have a big suitcase to pack a lot of stuff.
Bailie is in charge of meals. This is the first year we are bring our Dr. Harveys food which needs to be kept cold. We have two coolers and lots of ice packs. I think Bailie will do fine packing it since she loves to eat. Me, I might not do as well since I’m not big on eating.
After this weekend, we have a big AKC trial locally where Bailie and I are competing in Scent Work. The following weekend Olivia and I are at a Barn Hunt Trial. Bailie is taking a break from rats for now since she seems to have lost interest. The following weekend Bailie has three NACSW Nose Work Element Trials. Following that, Olivia and I have another Barn Hunt Trial weekend. Finally, we round up the streak with either me doing a Nose Work Trial, or Olivia doing a Tracking Test. She is going to try to get certified the end of the month, and if she does, then she has to hope she gets a spot in the test.
It’s been a wet week around here. We have over three inches of fresh rain, and it is getting down right tiring!
Camp will probably be a muddy mess, but we don’t mind as it is still fun. Olivia will be staying home because she is too young for camp. Mom is missing her and we haven’t even left yet. She will have fun, and definitely more fun than being kenneled at camp for three days! That is what we are up to, what are your plans? See you all Monday…or on social media on the weekend!
PS: It may be spooky at camp tonight being Friday the 13th and a full moon. Maybe we will howl for all the campers??? Did you know the next time there will be a full moon on Friday the 13th is 2049? I think we might miss that one!
Rain is our version of nature this week! We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
