Fourteen..... the number of MACH points Jimmy earned today! Woohoo! These are the very first MACH points I have ever gotten as Wilson was running in Preferred. Good thing you can start stacking up the points in JWW before you make it to Excellent B in the Standard ring. Jimmy continues to have table issues in Open STD, so there's no telling when I'll ever make it to the point of earning Double Qs. He was fast and clean in the rest of his Open run, so it's extra frustrating to have these table troubles. But I am not going to let that ruin the joy of my very first points. Jimmy even managed to get a 4th place in Excellent B Jumpers which is great. The competition increased significantly in the B class.

He also got his first Q in Open FAST with a 2nd place. The judge pretty much made a gift to all of us with a very simple Send. Almost all the dogs got it. I need two more generous courses like that and we will get our title. I don't think I will be trying Excellent FAST, it's just way too hard, and pretty much would be putting a match to my entry fee!

And so, Jimmy's and my journey to a MACH has begun....I hope I remember to savor every step!


  1. You have worked hard with Jimmy to reach this point -- I know you'll just keep getting better. Congratulations and keep it up!

  4. Congratulations, looking forward to your next step up.
