I don't know if I've mentioned it much here, but Derby is a very busy pup. *Very* busy. He is pretty much the spotty equivalent of the energizer bunny. He just keeps going and going and going! At home I manage it with lots of crate breaks, but I didn't think the other guests would really appreciate me attempting to train a quiet crate behavior at the hotel (he is very good at home).
Derby learned during his first trip that hotels are fun. He learned on this trip that hotel stays with Peyton are double the fun! Peyton was a very good puppysitter and did his best to try and keep Derby entertained, but even after 3+ hours of playing (and walks) every night, he *still* wanted to keep going, and I pretty much had to hold him until he would finally fall asleep. On a good note, once he's out, he's out for the night.
OMD. Does he *ever* give up?
Night two: Maybe he won't notice I'm here...
Night three: *Finally!*
On the trial front, it was another big fat NQ weekend for us, but we did have some nice runs. There was only one jumpers run that was a bit of a train wreck; the others we just missed qualifying by one or two little things. With the exception of one very naughty running dogwalk, contacts were pretty good. Peyton was happy. I was happy. Derby was happy. Happy is good. :)
