It ended up looking something like this: Work, work, work, two days of trialing with each dog, work, Selina coming to visit, work, and a papillon pot luck. Did I mention work? I really do love my job, and I love the income, but now I'm going to focus on the few non-work related things there.
2011 July AKC Berks Trial
The first weekend of July Abby and Skye came over for day 1 of the Berks trial in Palmyra. Lilly NQd in Standard, but Q'd in JWW while Knight Q'd in std (Getting the last leg for his NA!) and NQ'd in Open jww.
I had to work on Saturday and came back on Sunday with just Lilly. I pulled myself together and handled Lilly much better in standard on Sunday. She dropped a bar on the triple so we just missed a Q, but it was a really fun course and Lil ran fantastically for me. She snagged another Q in JWW, giving Lil her 9th Q out of 10 for her MXJ.
2011 July TDAA TNT Canines Trial
The last week of July Selina came over with Twister and Mani for one day at our semi-local Teacup Trial. Knight was a little sniffy on the course and blew his weave entries, but came right back and whipped through them the second time I asked. Knight Q'd all three of his runs that day, 2 towards his TIAD, and 1 towards his level 3 Games title.
2011 Papillon Pot luck
Selina and I went to the first annual Papillon Pot Luck in NY the Sunday after the TDAA trial. I absolutely loved it. I got to spend time with most of the local agility people including the StarStruck gang.

Our First Ring Rental
To wrap up Selina's visit we scheduled a ring rental at the K9 Jym. I think all the paps were brilliant at the ring rental, we both did the course twice with our own dogs, and then we swapped dogs for a run.
That pretty much wraps up all of my non-work activities this summer. Both Lil and Knight are officially entered in two 3 day AKC trials in September which will hopefully kick off a pretty full fall trialing schedule :)
