The Weekend Report - A Double Q....Sort Of

Well, today was a good day! Wilson, Jimmy and I went to the Mattaponi Kennel Club's All-Breed Dog Show and Obedience/Rally Trial. We were trying for our 3rd legs on the Rally Novice titles. It was a large Novice A class with 15 dogs, held in a grassy field. I find it interesting that with Rally you get a course map, and then have plenty of time to go off and practice. There wasn't too much I was worried about other than keeping noses out of the grass. There were plenty of direction changes, and I almost went the wrong way with Jimmy's 360 to the left. Wilson went first in the class, and Jim went near the end, so it was easy to keep them from worrying about each other. And as it turned out both boys scored a 95! This score was good enough to tie them for 2nd place. Jimmy was a second or two faster so he earned the 2nd place ribbon, Wilson the 3rd. Having each earned two legs at the National Specialty last month, the legs today finished off our Rally Novice titles. Yay! So, see, it was sort of a double-Q today, right?

Wilson is now Caduceus Castaway Wilson RN HT AXP AJP his CGC.
Jimmy is now Fine Creek's Sharp Dressed Man RN HT MXJ AX his CGC.

Here are the guys posing with all the ribbons they for placing, one for qualifying and one for our new title.

I am proud of my boys!
One of the great things about these large all-breed conformation shows is all the vendors! There are many more than you would ever see at an agility trial. Jimmy and Wilson each got a well-deserved knuckle bone.


  1. Congratulations on your Double Q! That is awesome. Love that they tied each other (G)

  2. Yay! Good for you and your boys. (Can they chew bones in the same room? Darby and Pumpkin, can't! They fight and Pumpkin always wins!)

  3. I love their new names!! Congrats on the ribbons!

    We got your package yesterday and tomorrow will post about it!

  4. Congrats! Those are nice ribbons!

  5. Congratulations on jobs well done! It's interesting that the boys are so different in personality, yet so close in their ability to work. Once again, wonderful photos.

  6. Yay! Congrats on the Rally title and the great scores!

  7. Congratulations! Great job! :)

  8. Well done , ribbons galore!
    Best wishes Molly
