Life Goes On...
Well, it's been quite a while with my LGO segment.  We've been uber busy with many things in our lives and seems like it's just passed along so very fast.

Charli is now close to 18 months old and he's quite a dog.  A diverse personality and certainly lives up to his name of Aladdin's Good Time Charli.  He even has his own Facebook Page...
We've had our first obedience trial with him at the beginning of July in 35ºC weather and it was a very very good learning experience for both Charli and myself.  I have a great support team behind me with Boyd, his parents, Carol & Rob (breeders, coach & mentors) and Gwen (coach & mentor) in our training.  We trialed for the first time and there are 5 exercises to do to qualify.  Charli and I got 3 out of the 5.  Not bad for being nervous!  The next day, we got 2 out of 5 and fun enough, we passed the two that we failed the day before and failed the 3 that we had passed the day before.  Our third day we passed 3 of the 5.... sigh.... I can't be disappointed as the second day was full, I mean full of distraction for him and he found it all too interesting rather than listen to me... I'm proud of our little guy and he received a lot of complements that when his "on" he's brilliant.  The show was also a conformation show (meaning the best of breed, best of show etc) and our breeder is well known for her dogs.  It's a whole world of who's who and dog gossip etc...
Charli will start agility competition in a couple of months...I had hoped he'd be ready this month but my coach kindly suggested that I should wait.  He's not quite there... *smile*

I've been also busy starting up my mobile eyelash extension business.  I completed my course in the spring and have a small clientele selection started.  It'll grow as I have spare time between work and dog classes/competitions... I'm also taking courses to keep up with the new advances in the business and it's very 'detailed' work and I enjoy it!

My sweet Boyd is doing much better and is on the home stretch for one of his bucket list items.  He and his best friend will be on the West Coast Trail a gut-testing grueling 5-7 day hike as of the 18th of this month.  He's been busy training for it with his back pack and getting prepared for the 7-11km daily hikes.  If you don't know about the WCT - do check out the link above.  We've had a few bumps along the way with emergency surgery and a battle of stress induced 'fun' for the last month and a bit but he's mended up quite nicely and is so looking forward to doing the hike.  It is planned again for next year with one other hiker in the mix - me! I have to start training soon, shedding some weight and building up leg and cardio strength...

And on that note... I should close as I do have to finish my shift here at work...

Thought for the day...


have a great one...
