Actually it's his AND his first field trial.
That's right folks...Travis and Bruce are coming with us this time. Of course instead of inviting him to a quick 2 day trial for his first stint as "so you really DO have a husband!" I've decided that he should come along for a three trial circuit, including two double lifts. If he can handle that - he can handle trialling. :-)
He and Bruce are all packed up. For Travis that means: activity appropriate ballcap, loads of magazines and books, a laptop, and most likely a game for said laptop. For Bruce, activity appropriate collar, tie out chain, milk bones in case he makes some new friends (shout out to Skid!).
Their carrot at the end of the stick? 4 days of hiking in Waterton National Park after the trials are through.
We'll be gone for about 2 1/2 weeks - I'll let you know how it went when we get back!
