Busy Weekend

Yesterday I went to a fun match with Twitch. We set up like at a trial because it was at the barn where we train. He did very well for all the new dogs and people. 🙂

Then Kris and I continued our half marathon training and ran 9.5 miles at Minto. It was a rough 9.5 miles because I did too much standing at the fun match. But we got it done!

Then we went over to Lilian’s house for pizza. She is such a great person. So kind and generous! She invited our old co-worker Roger over too so it was nice to see him again.

Today I went on a hike with Shelby. She brought Cricket and Squall and I took Twitch. It was a 3 mile out and back down Forest Service roads. At least most of it was.

We walked to Jawbone Flats which is this random small town in the middle of the woods. It used to be a small mining town I think. Now it’s more like a retreat with rental cabins.

We walked on through and took a trail back that met up with the road back a ways. I wish I’d taken a picture of that trail at some point. It was single file and uneven. Plus part of it became a creek! Twitch has apparently gotten over his distaste of walking in water because I think he walked in every puddle.

Overall it was a great day. I am pretty tired though.  Twitch did fantastic on the hike. He didn’t bark at any of the people that we walked past and ignored the eager puppy. He held a couple stays while I snapped photos. He did really really well! Yay!
