2014 North American Challenge national champion 2nd place
2014 North American Challenge regional champion 1st place
2014 regional champion all the things
Solstice had a grand time at DOCNA nationals! Definitely happy to play outside (though she did think I was more than a tad insane for running her in a downpour during Jumpers finals). We were the only dog in our height class at the west championships, so 1st and last place in everything by default. But we did run clean and pretty darn well on every single course, only a couple bobbles here and there, so I suppose we earned those 1st places anyway! There were some 24” dogs at the east championships, so we did have competition for NAC national placements. Only missed 1st place by 0.3 seconds (Solstice, quit stopping to look for daddy! Me, work on pulls to weird tunnel entrances!).

Ah! She is so talanted with all the ribbons! Congrats to you :-)
MONSTERS AND MAGIC | The Cosmic Witch
People talk about the universe like you’d have to reach past the ozone layer to get there, but a true witch knows it’s not that far off. The stars fix themselves in the linings of her dreams; she has galaxies inside her. At midnight she goes swimming in the ocean, salt stains on her legs and an alien language on her tongue. Have you seen what lives under the sea? All the monsters God made, the moon’s reflection from underneath.
"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."-John Perry Barlow, A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace
He’ll bring the ball back to you, but dropping it… well that’s another story.
My dog totally does that too! She always bring it back, but only lets the ball go if I give her a treat. And I’m always like, how do you think this game works if you don’t give me the ball? Sigh…
