Un-Still Life With Cavaliers: NAC NAC, Who’s There?

Posted by on Apr 7, 2014 in Blog, On The Road | 2 comments

Wind, rain, wind, snow, wind, ice, wind.  And an indoor agility trial.  Mrs. Sanflorian and I went to the American Kennel Club National Agility Championship (AKC NAC) and lived to tell about it.  At least I’m ready to tell about it now.  The adrenaline in the ring was nothing compared to the travel. Flash back to sometime early 2013, when we realized that the NAC was going to be held in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in late March 2014.  Harrisburg?  That’s like 9 hours away, that is practically in our back yard, we could almost walk there.  So we set off on our quest to qualify a...

Un-Still Life With Cavaliers: Catching Up!

Enough excuses, back to the subject at hand:  expectations,...

Un-Still Life With Cavaliers: On The ‘Mo-Mobile

Posted by on Jul 8, 2013 in Blog, On The Road | 10 comments

Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  Is it the trademarked logo of the largest beer distributor in the world?  Sometimes it looks like all of these things, especially if you’re half a mile behind us on an interstate highway.  It’s actually an eight-foot tall jumping Cavalier, more specifically Elmo, who adorns the roll-up door on the back of our RV.  Hence the RV (and all engine-driven entities should have a nickname) is known as The ‘Mo-Mobile.  Elmo has many more nicknames, but we’ll do another post about that.                ...
