Larger than life; I know. Yeah, you could say I was excited. I still find myself holding my breath when I look at it - especially the #3 on the label. Wow. Seriously. Have I mentioned what a lucky Dog Mom I am to have Vegas in my life? We are a team, yes, but she's the one doing what precious few Danes do - and doing it with enthusiasm and vigor.
So I didn't open it for a few hours. Subconscious reverence perhaps? LOL. Nah. Had to feed the dogs, do dinner, and then we went to the park for a while. But alas, upon my return, behold the contents.
So it is now 100% official. We're in. We did it. Now I just need to mail in the entry fee and form and get my ducks in a row between now and December. Still a lot of training I'd like to do between now and then. I'll go over those goals in a few days when I put it down on paper and map out a true plan. I guess they give special ribbons for each clean run at the invitational and I'd love to have at least one clean run.
