Two dogs … Sally and Brody
Four qs … 2 starters gamblers for Sally, 1 masters snookers for Brody, and 1 advanced jumpers for Sally
Eight seconds between the 4 qs and earning 7 qs (2 runs 2 seconds overtime; one run 4 seconds overtime~all Brody)
and so it goes sometimes 🙂
Brody’s runs have all started slowly – there were tunnels on the first few courses to start – B is not a big tunnel fan which may partly account for the slow start ups .. last run today folks cheered him home and he just BLASTED the last line – was great to see 🙂
(I must not fiddle with Brody – in the spring it was my hair, this weekend pulling my pants up blew us a weave entry … DOH)
One of Sally’s advanced jumpers wasn’t pretty – she pulled rails and barked and was goofy
though I stopped, regrouped and ended the last half well. Snookers was short – 1 point!! HAHA
Two gamblers classes went well … first one we did the mini (out to a tunnel) easy peesy – and the tunnel was the 4 pointer too 🙂 the gamble went jump jump and tunnel under the aframe
– Sally didn’t even think about it – BING BANG BOOM … I didn’t need this gamble – it was the second q under the same judge so I decided to do weaves … she did them just fine
also did a nice dog walk – YAY Sally … 11 obstacles before the whistle … for 64 points …
The next gamble was also pretty doable …jump tunnel jump …another nice dog walk, a teeter (two actually but she missed the up contact on one) the mini twice (jump, tunnel, jump) the 4 point spread twice for an awesome 66 points …what a good dawg … her last today was advanced jumpers – lots of LONG running lines but tunnels in the corners to let me get where I needed to be … she was fabulous – one very wide turn but not a foot wrong … what a dog!!
Brody’s two gamblers classes went well too – but very differently – my goal with him was to get enough opening points and have him do something confidently away from me – he did both both classes .. not exactly what I need to have at his level but just fine for our first dip in the water ..
all in all fun so far – just a couple of classes left tomorrow 🙂
Yeah!! Enjoyed reading that post and picturing your runs in my mind. Hope to some day get to watch you guys run in person!
Hope today is going well too.
