Well Rally is new in AKC I only found 3 books on amazon this one has great reviews http://www.amazon.com/Click-Your-Way-Rally-Obedience/dp/1577790782/ref=pd_bbs_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1240880362&sr=8-1

As for Agility I just read info on the web. There are many books but not sure which would be good basically i read amazon reviews to make my book decisions.

When I was a teen I would do agility with my dogs in the front yard. I never did contest but I trained my dogs to run threw jumps and tunnels

I am in North Carolina presently, but we are going to be moving my husband is in the Air Force right now and is getting out this year. He has applied for a government job in Florida at MacDill AFB near Tampa. We are hoping to hear something by June 4th, and if he gets the job by then we will be moving down there the 4th of July around then anyways! If not he is going to extend his time in service for 6 months and apply at other places that are offered him. Another reason I am waiting awhile before making another attempt at getting a good dog.

There are loads of shows and events here in florida. I am surprised there aren't any near you in NC... ?? Tampa has a pretty big show... It used to be in the summer but it may have changed... our tampa people would know better than I would. I'm way up in North Fla.

Thank you for the info! I do have a center called the Bon-Clyde center that is not to far from me, they have a great facility for agility training and such, but as I have no dogs right now to train for that I have only utilized the breed handling classes there. I will be looking for an all breed club to joing as soon as we get settled into where ever we are going this summer. I have Cape Fear dog training facility near me and Fayetteville Kennel club as well as Sanford that are close, but I have not joined because I am going to be moving in July, well we hope we will. My husband is getting out of the military and we will be going where his next job takes him. He is in the application review process for a position down in Florida, so we may be going there depending on what they say. We are biting our nails on this one LOL, they said it could take 30-45 days to hear anything and it has only been about a week and a half. The waiting game...gotta love it!

My son, Aaron, is almost his 20 years (straight out of high school). I am so glad. It was hard when he was sen to Mogadishu and he is scheduled for Iraq in the fall. I wasn't as worried the first time because he was a Cobra crew chief and stayed at the airfield to repair his three damaged helicopters he was responsible for. Now that he is a Chinook pilot, I am much more worried about it.

He and his wife are both career and they have been very fortunate in that they have been stationed together most of the time The only time that he was away from them for a length of time is while he went to officer training and Chinook training. They are now stationed in Virginia about 60 miles from the beach. They actually report to two different bases. He has to be at the base that has the helicopters and she is a communications specialist and is at another base.

They seem to handle it really well. I can't imagine what their life is like and they have four children they are raising.

God bless our service people!
