First clean Run

Whoopee... Levi had his first clean run...the course was a very fast one, and he did really well, and of course the mistakes were mine..but the last run was perfect... he did what i asked and his weave poles were great... he was better than all the other dogs in his class..(hope the handlers don't read this).. they have been at it for at least 2 or 3 years...and he hasnt been at for a year yet.. we have been practising weaves here at home, and some jumps..and boy does that make a difference... when i ran Jesse, we never had any practice time as i only had her an hour and a half a week, and that was for classes...
Anyone need a dog... this little fellow is looking for a new home.. his name is Kujo(awlful name, but i think he would answer to JOE..
He is a shih tzu/pomeranian cross, a year old and neutered.. Lady who owns him works and doesn't have time for him... he is free to an EXCELLENT home.. and i have to approve the home... It is a good thing that Larry won't get to see him, or he would be coming home with him... he is such a soft touch for critters needing a good home... we are so pleased with Levi... stubborn, but he is listening better all the time... Weather has gotten colder, -5 this morning... but we can't complain as it is only February... I had lambs born one Feb, they were black and by the time i got out to see them. they were white with we had better quit complaining... Jackson right now is trying to climb the power pole to get at the squirrels that are teasing is a big game for the dogs and the squirrels..
I have almost finished my jacket... and of course it is too small...i bought the magazine cause i loved the jacket,but it had only one size so i  had to fiddle around with needle size to get it bigger for my big i thought i had it right... then i had a problem with the pattern and went to the authors website to look for corrections, and won't ya believe it, but she had the pattern "FREE" with small, medium and LARGE sizes..and of course the large size would have been so much better for me... lucky for me, there is several rows of crochet edging, down the sides and down the front... so i will just add more rows of crochet... and so far it looks good..but i find i can't crochet and watch the Olympics at the same time..I can knit but not crochet.. so i should get it finished this week, and then i start another shawl for a 60 year old friend, then i have several more shawls to do for friends who won't be 60 until i am too old to knit.. better go do something... have a great day....
