Casey earned his RE (Rally Excellent) title on Thursday, and got his first RAE (Rally Advanced Combined) leg today. He came within a minute of qualifying in Open on Friday, too…that CDX (Companion Dog Excellent) leg is so close.

The only problem is that I don’t think he can handle three classes (Open obedience, Rally ExB and Rally AdvB) in one day, for four days in a row. I know I can’t handle it…my brain was mush after working him in Open and I blew both of his first RAE legs on Friday and Saturday because I couldn’t concentrate.

So from now on, it’s the two rally classes, or open…not both on the same day. It will take longer that way, but when I limit us to the two rally classes, he passes and I’m not exhausted. When I try to do all three, I make silly mistakes…miss a station, turn and ‘pull’ him out of the honor, etc. He can get this title easily, if I just do my part.

God, those letter look good after his name, though. And he had so much fun being at a dog show again. I had fun being at a dog show again…maybe for the first time in a long time.
