    AAC trial today (we go again Sunday). Smudge rocked it, again..

    Got 1st place and a Q in starters gamblers (and more points than even the big dogs got in the class at 66 pts), and he got his first starter jumpers Q and a 2nd. A sheltie was a second faster than him. Still he was 17 seconds under course time. That puts him one jumpers Q away from a games title.. Most likely he'll get that before we find a rally trial.

    Cider didn't get anything fantastic, but was better than she's been this year. 1st place in Master Gamblers, and we actually GOT the gamble, sadly Cider had to visit the judge mid gamble.. and we were over time. In advanced standard, We nailed our weaves for the first time in a long time in a trial, but she stopped to sniff a fence post for seemingly ever, so I assumed we would be over time. Ran the rest of the course, moved my shoulder and sent her over the wrong jump.. To find that we were still 7 seconds under course time.. If I had only been paying more attention.. And Master jumpers was pretty except I timed my turn badly off the bat and she ran past me to find the tunnel entrance she was better lined up for, so we were eliminated. Was a smoking fast pretty run otherwise though.

    Smudge wasn't sitting happily for pics, so this is the best I've got, lol

    Sadly it's her MO.. She flew off the dog walk once when we were newbs to land in the ring crew's lap who was at the end, lady didn't see it coming.. She's run off course just to see if they have food or loving... Our first trial at somewhere we'd never been with a judge who didn't know us a few fall's ago Cider was a menace. So HIGH.. We re did the same tunnels 3 and 4 times.. then she ran 20 feet at the judge and did a swimmer's turn off her... Judge looked freaked, I felt bad.. We Q'd 2 rounds later that day and got our dignity back though ;)

    Congratulations! Go Smudgy!

    FINALLY got my work schedule for the rest of the summer, and dropped an entry for a CPE trial in the mail this morning. I'd like to get in a couple more USDAA and finish up our P2 title this summer/fall. I think we just need 2 more standard legs, and we'll be in P3 for everything.

    Woohoo cocker clan! Go Smudge-Moo!

    Getting weaves on the first try after not getting them for a while is a BIG deal. Bailey did that today. We've worked hard on weaves--she's learning to find some really tough entries, at speed, and her understanding is showing!
