and little Brody pulled through with an amazing 396 points … not too shabby for a year of trialling eh?

yesterday morning started with gambles for us

he got 14 obstacles completed and earned 34 points.. I didn’t even try the minis as watching folks they wasted a TON of time on minis generally – the gamble was interesting – tunnel out to “wrong” end of tunnel then down a layered row of jumps

very few dogs got the gamble but those that did were AMAZING to watch

second round came up jumpers – it was a WICKED cool course to run but the tunnel curse followed us – Brody trotted the course rather then running it til we were finished the tunnels then he sped up – we got time faults but ran clean (a LOT of handlers got lost and dogs went off course)

it all came down to the standard run – It was important we ran well though we didn’t need a clean run .. Brody was so ON it was amazing – he NAILED a clean run and had 7 extra points as a time bonus … it was a thrilling way to end a thrilling weekend

he came 10th in jumpers on Saturday and 6th with that fabulous standard run Sunday

TWO regional ribbons – just amazing for a first time

so very grateful to everybody for the support around this ….. and so honoured to live with such a generous dog
