This past weekend we were entered in our club’s AKC trial. Love doing this trial as it is so close to home plus I get to see many of my AKC friends that I typically don’t see at USDAA trials. The weather could not have been nicer!! Perfect fall weather, nice a cool yet sunny. What a change from last year!!
I feel like I am starting to sound like a broken record, but I have to say that the boys were once again superstars!! They all put in stellar runs all weekend. Zorro is becoming more confident and his speed is dramatically improving. So much so that a friend watching our Standard run on Saturday had to giggle when she saw Zorro take off to the straight tunnel leaving me in the dust and scrabbling to catch him!! No complaints here!! So happy to see that. It’s a great feeling to see him gain his confidence in the ring. Zorro earned a 1st place in JWW on Saturday and 1st place in Standard on Sunday. Here is Zorro’s run from Saturday, he missed his A-Frame contact but otherwise was fantastic.
Zippy could not put a paw wrong all weekend and earned QQ’s on both Saturday and Sunday!! WoHoo!! Unbelievable!! He earned 1st places in JWW on Saturday and Sunday and 2nd places in Standard only because Dasher got 1st place. Can’t really complain about that!! Dasher did great but had a bar in JWW on Saturday and Sunday I caused a refusal in JWW. I was sending him to a tunnel but stopped short and he turned back to me. He was a good boy for listening to me!!
Here are more runs from the weekend:
