My Skyeboy did me proud this weekend at the AKC trial at Latigo. I went into the trial needing 1 Q for both my AXJ and OA titles. Skye got those Q's for me on Saturday (two first places too), and decided to get two more Q's on Sunday to go 4/4. Yea! My boy also got all his weaves, which always makes me happy.
Sunday's Exc. Standard course tricked a lot of people - the Q rate was less than 25%, and of the Exc. A dogs, only 3 of 27 managed to Q. Skye was one of the very few!
Sunday's JWW was our first run in Exc "B" and our first opportunity to earn MACH points. We managed a Q and now I have 6 points.
Rip went with us (along with Ice and Rush) and he did awesome. Wow this was the first time since we got him a week ago that I actually heard him bark, and what a loud bark it is! I was having him watch some of the runs and he was all excited and barking & bouncing - a good sign for a future agility star. More of his personality comes out each day and he is such a sweet boy, he has made lots of friends, both human and dog.
