OK so I screwed up big time. Way back when the pups were little, I got temporary listing numbers for Peace and Talie so we could go to the show and enter the novice puppy classes. I didn't have the AKC registration paperwork back from AKC yet, so I couldn't actually do the UKC registration. Time goes by and I realize that there is a show coming so I fill out the registration paperwork to send in, along with an entry for the show still using the TL number. No problem at all. Right- well normally yes, but of course I screwed it up. We go to the show, Grace gets her win needed to finish and Peace gets wins the next 3 shows, and 85 points. (you need 100 points and 3 wins with competition)
Fast forward to a week or so ago and I get Grace's UKC championship paperwork in the mail. I suddenly (slap up side the head) realize I haven't gotten the Peace's registration. Hmm. I email UKC, they show nothing? I check the bank and the check hasn't been cashed. (I know, had I balanced my checkbook recently I might have noticed). So, now since I didn't get her paperwork in before the points were accrued (remember I thought I had) we now have to pay to transfer the points to her permanent number. And because I got her TL number so long ago, it will cost $200.00 to do so. OOPS!
Well I just cannot afford to do that. So Peace is just going to have to earn 100 more points and earn 3 competition wins again. I guess the positive there is that we get to go play together more!
Oh, and guess what, today I found the envelope. I hadn't mailed it. It slipped under the little hard surface bottom of my tote bag and I never noticed it. (Along with about a buck in change)
