The A Team is really a nicely synchronized unit; enthusiastic, fast and a very smooth running team. The only changes made in the running order is to give more experience at lead with the alternating of Tira (Kira2), Indigo and Perle.
The B Team is also showing progress with Hurit and Darth gaining more experience on each run. Here also, we are working with young leaders with Kira, Tepeu and Yoda getting more experience at the lead position. The biggest change since last season is Kira who is developing into a very focussed leader immune to distractions such as Partridge, Squirrels, trucks and tractors. She passes all these distractions without even breaking her stride or looking at them. For being the smallest dog in the kennel, she has a dominant attitude at lead. There is a good chance she with get some experience running lead in the Open Team at some races this season.
The puppies are doing great and getting bigger with every passing week. Their food consumption is also increasing and are very enthusiastic eaters. It doesn't take very long for the food to disappear as they in-hail it.
The weather here has been very co-operative this season and it is enabling us to get more miles of running on the teams than we have had the last several years to date.
Until next week.......
