      Good weekend

      Brooks and I did our first Rally Advanced trial on Friday evening at the Wilmington Kennel Club. Brooks did quite well, scoring 89 on our run. We lost 10 points as he did not do the high jump. I do beleive it was my fault, as I waited until we were to close to the jump to actually send him. Advanced leg one in the books!

      We did obedience at Wilmington today, entered in our 3rd Novice A trial. We NQ'd at our first trial when he got up on the old sit/stay. Trial 2 was a disaster. It was by far the worst we've ever done. He was completely distracted the whole time we were in the ring. I can't say why, so let's just say that was a great learning experience. Today we recieved a qualifying score of 192.5 and took 2nd place. We lost 7 points for failing to sit on two "HALTS" on the heal on leash and the heel free. The other half point came on the recall. His front was slightly crooked. The big success for today was losing ZERO points on the stand for exam!!!!!

      We did get to watch Annette and Chloe in OPEN B today, and they did a very nice job, taking I beleive 4th in a 4 way run off. I really enjoyed watching them work!!!!

      Congratulations!

      And thanks - wasn’t one of our best performances, but not the worst either :-) I was VERY surprised when they called us in for that run-off ... hadn’t warmed up or anything - was sitting and chatting, LOL.
