Good Weekend...and slightly Mortifying....

We are back from yet another horse show...although it's been since Thanksgiving since we've attended one, but we had a really good show. One of our clients really got it together with her new horse this horse show and had some really great placings and another client had her parents visit her and won her class also... sooo... good horse show... some happy tears (which are much better than the other kind!)... oh the mortifying part...well...
As many of you know, we have a new addition to our family... JR, our rescued Jack Russell and this was his first horse show. We typically keep the dogs crated in the tack room, but for some reason we left them loose in the tack room and shut the door... well when we opened the door JR shot out of there like his tail was on fire and ran STRAIGHT INTO the make up pen...and proceded to "attack" the big, monster dogs (horses)...luckily at the time no one was riding, but K was running after him, trying to grab his leash, the trainer giving the lesson was screaming at him (K and JR) and the students were just trying to get their horses under control...sigh...K came slinking back to the stall with JR and we were both totally mortified! We've got a LOT of obedience work to do... who would think this 10 lbs would be such a terror??? (ok, me...but seriously, does that face look like an attack dog to you? LOL) that was day 1...the rest of the weekend went better and he was crated from there on out...LOL...oy!
