Trial weekend

I went to an AKC trial at the beach this weekend. The weather couldnt have been better. Sunny and warm.  Love it!!   Saturdays runs felt really good. Its just seemed like one thing happened on each run to NQ us. LOL

First up was open jww. This was a tough course. Harder than the masters course.
The whole thing squished on one side of the field. Off courses every where. The judge was really nice so hard courses are ok with me but I was pretty sure I couldnt run it.  Of course we messed up the easy stuff. She missed jump #3. I have no idea why. I was planning on front crossing between 3-4. The the rest was perfect. That figures huh?  I think only two dogs Qed.

Next up was Mileys standard run.

Miley got on the table like she has been doing it her whole life. LOL   It was a beautiful fun until I rear crossed on the flat after 17 instead of in front of 17. This pushed her wide and she missed jump 19. Ugh!

Next Mileys  masters JWW run.  We dropped a bar.

Then Java's novice standard run. It was beautiful!!!  Awesome dogwalk contact. We dropped a bar, what a heart break.

Miley, T2B.

I debated how to run the serp at 13. First I was going to front cross on the dw side and run it that way. I was worried she wouldnt push out to 15.(I should have run it this way)  So I decided to run on the weave pole side and I was going to front cross b/t 14 -15. I didnt make it and had to rear cross. This sent her off course.

Great day even with the things that kept happening. At least Miley was running with me and trying.  Its hard to run a dog who is freaked out. That didnt happen at all today. Yay Miley. Java was awesome too. I need to stop cutting her off with those front crosses.

I am trying to catch up on everything--you guys had a great weekend! Little things here and there, but you and Miley are looking like a great team!

And Java...she is going to be a serious force to be reckoned with! I keep forgetting that she's just a baby dog!
