New Album

It's been a while since I added anything to the Google albums pages, but with so many pictures of Rally and Sandia running through the water, and chasing each other, I just had to share...

Watersports at Windyglen




I wonder how many of the people who were at the ASFA National Greyhound Specialty this weekend knew there was a small pond in the far northeast corner of Don and Sally's 40 acres. Well, "Team Beige" found it this morning, and boy did they have fun! This has got to be good for Sandia's development, and it doesn't hurt Rally's rehab, either.

Other than the pond, water was scarce this weekend. In fact, today marks a whole week since we've seen any clouds! I can't remember that ever... anywhere. It's eerie. Temps in the 60's, light breezes, a full Hunter's Moon at night. Those who didn't come missed the best weather anyone could recall for a running event. I'll post more when we're more settled than we are at the Sherman, TX Sam's Club parking lot...

Puppy Fix?


After yesterday's bile, I thought it was time for more cute puppy stuff. Brand new today in Santa Anna, Texas. Of course, this was in the afternoon. When he was really ramming around at a high rate of speed this morning.... I didn't have the camera with me.

Hijacked!

As it turns out, we will not be going to the Bluegrass Coursing Club's November trials, as noted on our schedule for the past couple months. That leaves an open date between the ASFA Region 7 regional and the MAWA trial in Calhoun, GA. If anyone has suggestions, let us know, (although this makes Margaret very happy as it allows extra time with the grandkids!)

I'm a bit peeved, myself. Many trial organizers, when they think about a photographer at all, (which is seldom), make the convenient choice, rather than consider what the exhibitors would prefer. There's a reason Shot On Site Photography has been selected to shoot 11 of the last 12 ASFA International Invitationals, (and have been selected already for '08), the inaugural ASFA National Greyhound specialty and this year's event as well, 9 of the last 10 Saluki Specialties, and... well I could go on, but I think the point's been made.

We're easy to reach: dan@shotonsite.us , or margaret@shotonsite.us ...and the phone number is on our website. In 2008, we plan on being more proactive in setting up our schedule. If you're an exhibitor, and you want us at your trial, tell your trial chairperson or secretary. We want to make up a schedule that makes sense driving a 7 mpg motor home around the country.

UPDATE:
OK, I don't mind missing the BGCC trial now.. I just checked, and it's the weekend of the UM-OSU football game. And I know from experience, there's no TV reception at the trial site... (or for many miles around there, for that matter.) Thanks providence!

Arkansas

Our route to Hutto, TX takes us, this time, through Arkansas. As luck would have it, we've stopped for the night at the WalMart in a place called Hope. Hmmmm... a place called Hope? Why, that would make a good title for a campaign video!

Be that as it may, our overnight stop in Arkansas allows us to do something to the outside of the Express that we've needed to do for some time. I'll try and post "before" and "after" pictures tomorrow when we get to our weekend digs.

Sabbatical

Things have been quiet around here lately, I know. We're leaving for Texas this morning, and for the last couple of weeks we've been busy preparing for the trip. Too busy to blog, I guess. And we'll be moving quite a bit for the next couple of weeks, so posts will remain spotty. But we will be back! So keep checking, or better yet, subscribe to the feed so you know when things are happening here.

There's much I want to cover, like a whole multi-subject dog post covering things like the puppy's progress, Rally's National Turtle, Randir's "real age", the best shot at the AR movement yet, and more...

So stay tuned.


UPCOMING EVENTS:

Oct 20-21 AAWC Hutto, TX
Oct 27-28 ASFA Greyhound Specialty Boswell, OK
Nov 2-4 Cirneco Specialty Cat Springs, TX

Lucky Dog!

Daisy experiences what other dogs worldwide only dream about.

We're Baaack.

Since the middle of last week, we were lost in the "wilderness" of the Finger Lakes Region of New York.. specifically, at the Wine Country Cluster of dog shows and performance events at Sampson State Park on the shores of Seneca Lake. A beautiful venue, but one lacking in the necessary essentials of blogging.... like an internet signal. Cell service was also spotty at best.

We're back in Jackson, MI getting ready to head on down to Indiana for the weekend. So here's a schedule of upcoming events:

October 6-7 LGRA/NOTRA OB National Racemeets Carthage, IN
October 13-14 MGA ASFA trials Gibraltar, MI
October 20-21 AAWC ASFA & AKC trials Hutto, TX
October 26-28 ASFA National Greyhound Specialty B0swell, OK
November 2-4 Cirneco del Etna National Specialty Cat Springs, TX
November 10-11 ASFA Region 7 Invitational Cartersville, GA
November 17-18 BGCC ASFA trial Columbia, KY
November 23-25 MAWA ASFA trials Les's new place, somewhere in Georgia.

I'll get the name of that town in there when I find out what it is.

EDIT: Calhoun, GA... that's where we'll be Nov 23-25!

Also, watch for an upcoming photo contest, and maybe some pictures of boy and girl dogs being bad.
