Taking a step back...

...with Tweak in flyball. So sad, but sooo necessary.

So I finally got a chance to go through the pictures that were taken at the tournament... oh. my. god.

Her box was *awful*! Not even close to kidding kind of awful!

I think it's because she doesn't have a lot of experience running full speed with props but who knows. So that's it - she's out!

Not out entirely, she'll do warm up with full props but she won't run without them. This will also allow us to remove the where-is-the-other-dog pondering she's doing *while in the lane* thing.

The last thing I want to do is rush her and it's very clear that she doesn't quite have the muscle memory for her job yet. So, back to training only and we'll take it from there.

What kills me is that her box looks *sweet* at home.... she just doesn't have the 60 feet to gain speed here like she does at a tournament.


In other news, all of the rescues are fitting in quite nicely. I have to work tonight (at home) but I'll try to upload some pictures and get them listed online. I have limited time before they're included in the dog watching while I'm away and I'm really, really hoping that doesn't have to happen!
