There was one very bright spot in the weekend. This trial offered the optional class called Time to Beat. There is only one winner in each jump height, and that goes to the fastest dog. Jimmy won the 12 inch class and got the blue ribbon! He earned the full ten points for being first. This has never happened before and may not again as it is very hard to beat the 12 inch Shelties/Jacks/Cockers, etc. For this particular run, we lucked into the right combo of dogs that let Jimmy come out on top! Yay, Jimmy! While not shining examples of either my or Jimmy's skills, here are our Standard runs...I certainly don't have to worry about my ego getting out of control!
A very poorly planted front cross by me before the table ensured Jimmy didn't know where to go so we got a refusal. Completely my fault and of course everything else was clean.
Since we added nothing to our MACH quest or our Nat'l tallies, I'll leave off our progress info for this post.....We will try again another day!
I should have gone to the BlogPaws Conference instead!
