Went to an AKC trail this weekend. First up was FAST. I didnt Q with either dog. Java was heading for the correct tunnel entrance and I said tunnel, she pulled off and took the other entrance. All I could do was laugh. So the rest of the weekend I didnt say tunnel just in case she thinks it means something other that what I thought it meant.
Next up was Master standard. We havent trial in about 6 weeks or so, so I wasnt sure what was going to happen at the table. But she got right on. She had a beautiful run. We were 6 seconds behind the 1st place dog. Im not sure how I could have made her turn tighter because she looks pretty tight almost every where except the jump before the aframe.
Next was Open JWW.
Next up was Miley's Master JWW run.
Miley missed the #13 jump. I was going to layer that unnumbered jump between #12 and 13 but when I told people this everyone seemed like that was a crazy thing to do. But I know Miley and I was going to have to pull hard to get her over. Well I didnt layer it and she missed the jump. Ugh. I know my dog and should have stuck to my plan.
Also my cross must have been late after 9 because she turned the wrong way after 10.
Last up Novice Standard.
This was a very nice run except for missing that jump.
She turned the wrong way after the jump after the weaves. I gave her a stong "go on" and think she was so extended and just went on.
First was T2B. I had both dogs entered.
Java had a nice run but kept popping the 10th pole. The ending was very nice.
I pulled Miley at the beginning because I thought she had dropped 3 bars in a row. It turned out to be two in a row. But I was worried she was hurt. She is ok and didnt drop anymore bars Sunday.
Next was open jww. I really thought we were going to do this.
I had to pull Miley from Master standard. First she came out of the weave poles. I let it slide thinking maybe she slipped or something. Then she was coming down the dogwalk, like she was going to stop and took a flying leap off the dogwalk, over the contact and into the wrong end of the tunnel. So I picked her up and we left. Silly dog.
Next up was Masters JWW.
I was going to blind crossed but chickened out. So my freaking front cross was late and to far over and made her miss the jump. Man I was so upset at myself. I cant even do a front cross right. I just wanted to go home after this but Java still have nocice standard and I wanted to try to Q.
So anyway Java Qed and we are out of Novcie. So happy!!.
