Emotional Rollercoaster

So I haven't been doing any work since the "incident".

Today I went to my usual dog club and I talked to my helper. He told me that the helper from the other club doesn't have the sensual feeling for dogs like that and that he had quite some dog handlers from that club because that helper couldn't handle those dogs.

I know I can believe my helper. Today Yukon was better than ever before. I wished I would have had the camera with me but I forgot it in the clicker room.

He said that if I wanted to continue we (could it be? Is he going to continue training me and my dogs until we leave? THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME!!!) would have to start doing more and train at least twice a week in Schutzhund now.

It's like an emotional rollercoaster. Two weeks ago I wanted to quit completely because the other helper managed to shut him down in two minutes and today he showed that he's got it in him!

Man, I am telling you, I am more stressed out than the dog. Maybe I shouldn't worry so much...

STOP BEING SUCH A WIMPY CRYBABY!!!

I'm sure you have had worse things than this happen in your life and you got through them. Schutzhund is full of disappointments and that's just part of the game. What will make you successful is rebounding from those disappointments. You can work through this or you can quit....but for the love of god quit whining!!!

Eh, it's okay. He totally missed the point anyway. I was impressed about Yukon since he shut down a couple of weeks ago and am hoping that my helper doesn't quit in August because he said that we have to start working twice a week and not just once IF I want to continue.

I was stressing over the whole thing, that I know but only because I am under a lot of pressure because a lot of people want to see me fail.

I was even told that I don't belong at a dog club because of my weight and that I am not considered athletic and that I'd be never titling a dog not speaking of passing the BH at all...

Oh and yes, Fast...if I want to let off steam I will let it out. I've learned a long time ago that it is not healthy to bottle it up and keep it inside. I am not the only one writing about mishaps and progress and I won't let anyone tell me what I can write about and what I can't write about, except for moderators and admins.

If you don't like it, don't read it.
