Exciting News!

It's Robin here today with some exciting news!

You guys might know I've been hoping to get serious about doing canine freestyle with Christmas. Canine freestyle is a sport where a handler and his or her dog does a series of tricks and movements to music. Some people will wear costumes and have themes and stories tied into their routine, but I'm not into that kind of thing. I like simply doing the string of tricks to the song with no particular theme or storyline.

Anyway, I finally wrote a good routine and found a good soundtrack for our routine! A few of the tricks I still have to teach Chris (weave around my legs, jump through my arms, etc.) but he has a lot of the tricks down. I'll have to teach Chris those few tricks he doesn't know yet, memorize what we have to do at certain parts of the song (that's what the routine is that I wrote), get Chris (and myself) used to doing them all in a strenuous order like that, we both have to get used to doing our routine to the song at perfect timing, and voila! I know, easier said than done. This will take many months to learn, but I know if we work hard at it and practice enough we'll be doing our routine to our soundtrack flawlessly. If you really do want to hear the soundtrack we'll be using, my mom would be willing to share it with you guys.

I know it might not be exciting when you don't see the written routine, hear the upbeat song that's totally perfect for our routine (my mom first heard it while in the carpeting department at Home Depot, BOL), or totally understand what we'll do be doing, but it's truly exciting, friends. If you're curious, YouTube has lots of cool canine freestyle videos you can watch. I hope to share more of our progress in the future!
