Spur's Performance Grand Prix!

I know, it's a little hard to watch because of the shaking. Skinny Lisa was low on blood sugar. Probably had not had breakfast. Can you imagine?? Somehow that's just not in my imagination. No breakfast. I have breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, after lunch snack, mid-afternoon snack, appetizer snack, dinner, dessert, snack before bed. Hahahahaha, I may be skinny, too, but I don't ever let breakfast go! Especially on a dog show morning.

Anyway, if you can watch it I am SO proud of The Spur Man!! Not sure it was all my fault his wide turn at my front cross to jump #3? I think he was simply focused on the big green tunnel opening looking at him straight away. My favorite part? Watch his A-frame!!! At first I thought the video sped up!! Seriously, it kind of looks that way! :D He FREAKIN' FLIES over that A-frame!!! Adorable!! He loves his A-frames and with really no training at all does them perfectly, I think. I love that! I love things that train so easily. Or essentially just train themselves. Can I peel off the A-frame and leave him to do the whole thing himself without me there? Not sure. I can at home, but not sure in a trial.

He does miss his dog walk contact, though, in this run. Damn. Not sure why, it does look like I am running pretty hard? Although you can't see me that well, so maybe I slowed down. Regardless, his dog walk is in need or work. He is enjoying it, but I need to get that going for us. That is perhaps the greatest training challenge I have ever encountered. If I can get that going, boy I will be SOME proud of myself. I am determined.


  1. Too fix the video being cut off go to edit post, then click on the Edit Html tag which is at the top of the window you'd write your post in.

    Scroll down to the video and you'll see a code that looks like this

    o.bject width="640" height="385">par.am name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/0K8bIVn5Wzg?fs=1&hl=en_US">/pa.ram>par.am name="allowscriptaccess" value="always">/par.am>embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/0K8bIVn5Wzg?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed</objec.t

    Change the number 640 in both places in this code to 400

    And change the two 385's to 265.

    This should make it fit better in your blog. If not, just screw around with those numbers till you find a combination that does work.

  2. Awesome, Elizabeth!! Thank you!!!!
