DOCNA AGILITY - Grand Junction Style!

Here's the link: Grand Junction Agility Photos

Suzie and I (and Wyatt and Josie) had such a great time this past weekend. Y'all know how to put on a trial. Thanks so much to Cathy Stampe for letting me come and shoot the trial, and to the whole Junction Gang for being such great hosts. I see the Airport Motel 6 and Grand Junction as a regular stop for us!

An observation: while Utah rules (the nation!) in the whole birthrate thing, Colorado seems to be producing a significantly higher percentage of junior handlers. It was really great to see Kaitlyn, Levi, Mauryn and their young peers just tearing up the courses! (Levi's Jumpers run on Saturday, his first run ever if I'm not mistaken, put a HUGE smile on my face.)

Enjoy the photos!

New & Improved Great Salt Lake Agility Gallery!

(Or Keith Finally Gets Off His Rump and Posts Sunday's Photos)


Hi all!

I was away all of last week without a good internet connection. (How we take it for granted.) Got home Friday in time to repack and head to Grand Junction for a DOCNA trial. More on that tomorrow, I hope.

Anyway, I FINALLY added Sunday's photos here: Great Salt Lake Combined Gallery.


PS. I am swamped with orders. I'm trying to get caught up this week. I appreciate everyone's patience.

PSS. I seem to be posting too few photos lately. Let's catch up a little bit:

(Could Ernie or Emma have offered some form of compensaton to be pictured twice in one blog entry? No comment!)

(and those great ears!)

(Nobody, and I mean nobody works as hard as Melinda Gaines to get the most out of their partner!)

Great Salt Lake Agility Combined Gallery

(Ben, Darlene Cologna's Havanese)

Here's the link to a gallery from Friday and Saturday: GSL Agility Photos

Whew! A three day trial three days after four days at Lynnleigh?! GREAT event but I don't know how you all (me too?) do it sometimes. I didn't even run Wyatt this show and I'm exhausted. Crazy from the sun maybe.

Big BIG thanks to the Geat Salt Lake Dog Training Club for putting on their usual well-run show. Amazing how it flowed. Judge Mark Upshaw had something to do with that as well.

Note that with this gallery prices for high- and low-res jpegs have returned. These were omitted from the last few galleries due to my (coding) negligence. So, my bad! Until I make the changes to the IKC/GIV trial gallery, know that you can get jpegs from those or any other show I've shot.

If you didn't stop by our display, here's the new style we're offering for 8 1/2 x 11 prints ("8x10" in the shopping cart):

These went over well at the show, so well that this will be a permanent option; feel free to order this style from older galleries as well. Just specify "with text" when placing an order. (Click on the photo for a larger preview.)

Thanks everyone! I enjoyed shooting your dogs!
