Generally I'm not one to complain, but I wasn't really a fan of the courses this week. I think out of 8, there was only one that I liked. In general, they just didn't seem to have a good flow, and a couple were downright ugly - at least for large, fast dogs. I'm all for challenges, but some of these courses were no fun at all. The trial itself was pretty good - lots of nice people and it ran very smoothly.
As for Miami, I thought it was an okay city - I would probably have a better opinion if it wasn't for the traffic. We drove around downtown and out to the beach on Friday afternoon and it took 3 hours for a trip that should have taken an hour, tops. Our hotel was decent (I was a little worried) although as a little PSA - please, please remember to check the floors when you are traveling with dogs! I always do this first thing, but Peyton still managed to find what I'm pretty sure was a NyQuil LiquiCap on Thursday morning. Thankfully he didn't seem to suffer any ill-effects, but it was not a great way to start off our trip!
Peyton did great with all of the traveling and he was super in the hotel - such a big change from our early hotel stays. It might have helped just a little that his golden friends were staying there too and came over at night to hang out. Peyton has decided that Finn is a pretty cool puppy and they had a great time playing. They were hysterical to watch! Here's a short little clip...
