USDAA at last!

Xen and Rob had an off-course tunnel incident restarting the weaves in Advanced Standard on Saturday.
(Please note that Xen and I have been in Advanced Standard since September 6, 2009. Wow. scary…)
Sunday, they got it!!! (there’s video, somewhere). So, Xennie AAD!!!

Also, I Q’ed in Steeplechase on Saturday. Also video, again, somewhere. And, 4th place. So, Xen and I now have 3/5 of the Tournament Q’s she’ll need for her ADCH, also comprising 2/3 of the required Tournament types required for the ADCH.

Progress has been made. I’m happy. This weekend felt really connected.

Saturday, Jett ran in a timely and happy manner, with Q’s and ribbons (duh!) in Veterans Snooker and Jumpers. Sunday, she landed after Jump #1 and just…looked bad. Momentum took her to, and over Jump #2, and I thanked the judge and The Jett and we got her leash and collar. Both runs.

Crate rest for now, then we’ll see. She’s entered again in 2 weeks, 2 runs/day AKC…

Happy News! Rotten Video!

That’s how it goes when your dogs rock, with alternate handlers, and you have to hide and try to film at the same time.

Highlights from this weekend’s CABTC AKC trial:

Xen, with Rob handling, got her first Excellent B JWW Q, with a 4th place finish!!!

Xen and Rob, CABTC 8-12-12 20\" ExB Q 4th place

And, my friend (and Jett’s friend) Cindy ran Jett in a trial for the first time. Jett ran fast and happy, and they Qed with a third place finish in 16″ ExB Preferred JWW.
