9 Days Til the Specialty

Tonight is our last obedience class before our last obedience class before we leave for nationals. We are still trying to get in our one rally course per day, although have had a little bit of trouble recently due to the rain. Poor little Lemon still hasn't gotten her fair share of prep work for conformation. I keep trying to convince Chris to show her in conformation since she has so much more fun with him, but it seems like a losing battle. I find Lemon to be significantly more challenging to work with than Jackson. Jack and I have been taking classes and working together since he was a puppy (almost 4 years they grow up fast), so he tends to get immediately what I want him to do. Lemon on the other hand... sometimes we're not on the same page. And since Chris and I aren't always on the same page, I'm thinking that maybe Chris and Lemon are on the same page???? See Exhibits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for evidence supporting that theory.

Same Page Exhibit 1: Love at first sight

Same Page Exhibit 2: Snuggling together on the couch
Same Page Exhibit 3: Working Together on a Project

Same Page Exhibit 4: Gracefully Gaiting Together During a Fun Match (you won't find a picture of Lemon looking anything like this in a REAL match when I am handling her, that picture would be of her jumping along like a kangaroo while I look annoyed and try not to trip over her)

Same Page Exhibit 5: The Trust Drive--Chris closes his eyes while Lemon tells him where to go
