Before I launch into my main post, here's a reminder about my Jones Natural Chews giveaway. Leave a comment on that post (not today's!) to have a chance to win some truly delicious treats for your dog. I'm pulling the winner sometime tomorrow so don't miss out!
OK....moving on to today....
My title came to mind from this Meat Loaf song. It has nothing to do with my post except for a similar title, but it will give you a good earworm for the day. That's always good mischief!
This weekend was the agility trial given by the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of the Potomac. It was a lot of fun. Great judges who designed fun, flowing courses, corgi friends I hadn't seen in a while, and even a blue merle Cardigan puppy. SQUEE!!!
Jimmy and I had quite a bit of success. Three Q's and 71 more points. Both of us are loving running in the 8 inch class! Jimmy is happy because he makes less mistakes, and I am happy because I can now run the course for a more efficient line and not a line that helps keep the bars up.
Jimmy earned first place in both of his Standard runs. Here is Saturday's, the only one that was videoed (thanks Melissa!)....
We also qualified in Jumpers on Saturday, giving us double-Q #3 toward our PACH. It was a speedy run, but we could not beat a Sheltie that was a full 4 seconds faster. So, it was good for a 2nd place ribbon. Sunday's Jumpers run had a bar down, which was 100% my fault! I changed my handling plan in mid-run, for no real reason, and badly botched a rear cross. Jimmy had no idea what I was trying to tell him to do and crashed the bar. Sorry Jim, that one is all on me!
Sunday's maps for you agility addicts out there.....
I was definitely the mischief maker this week! We would have had a clean sweep if I had just stuck to my original plan! Oh, well, I'll try harder next time!
