Handling Class

The time draws near, but the Flynn grows wigglier. Last week at class he was completely awesome (the video clip at the end of this post is from that night), but at tonight's class he had the attention span of a more-than-usually ADD gnat. Either I need tastier bait or he needs to be exercised more thoroughly beforehand. Probably both. 

The breed counts from the specialty have come in; Flynn is one of 20 rough dogs (a five-point major) the first day - which means he has a 1 in 20 chance of taking WD. Naturally, this will not happen, as he's still an immature baby. The odds of winning his class are slightly better - 1 in 3. We'll see. It'll be a really good experience, ribbons or no ribbons, and always with the knowledge that it's not the same as any other competition - it's about quality of breeding stock. But, ribbons are fun. :)
