Julia's Weimeraner Mckeely earned her Excellent Standard title! It has been a long time coming, and we are all very proud of the great team they have become! She is one Jumpers Q away from her Excellent jumpers title aswell!
Kim had a phenomenal weekend with her berners-
Maggie earned an Intermediate Standard Q, AND an Excellent JWW Q! She had a good weekend, and only had a few pokey runs.
Bosley had a great weekend and finished his Intermediate title, and is now in Excellent everything in CKC! He had some really amazing runs, and everyone was very impressed with him.
I had a good weekend with Wicca- we finished her Novice Jumpers title, and now only need one Q for her Novice Standard title. It was a great weekend for her to be able to run simple courses and really open up. The extra 2 inches to her jump height did her in on every course except for two. But I was pleased with her anyway- no off courses, great contacts, weaves, and handling on my part- just one knocked bar!
There aren't many CKC trials around here, but it was worth the trip to Edmonton- a nice small trial, easy courses, and visiting with friends!

Except. We all kicked ass (mostly) and all had a great day.
Tag had an awesome Gamble opening and racked up tons of points. He missed the end gamble by a tunnel. :o) His Standard was good- and there was some really great parts. He had a bar or two I think. His jumpers was a little wild. It again had some pretty moments, but mostly Jo wants to forget about it.
Kaleb did great. He ran clean in Jumpers and Standard, and had a great Gamble opening, but didn't get the end gamble. His Jumpers run was beautiful, and he never stepped one foot out of line.
Gyp had a great day too- her Gamble was breathtaking and she had no problem with the end gamble. Her Jumpers run was flawless. Her standard run was beautiful- except for the first two obstacles. She had a little melt down before she went in to the ring and Sarah had to work extra hard to keep Gyp from being nervous. Thankfully, Gyp recovered and the rest of the run was gorgeous.
Wicca had an awful start to her day. Apparently it is a tradition to have a FIVE POINT run at Nationals. She was completely wild, and did not listen to me. It was rough. She redeemed herself with the gamble, although still had weave issues. She got the gamble though, but had an average opening. Her standard run at the end of the day was awesome. We had two bars, although only got called for one. It was a great run though, and a great way to end the day.
The banquet was a bust. Seriously. :o) It sucked. But the company was good- our table was fun, and we mostly had a good time. :o)
Wish us luck tomorrow!

Tag and Jo had a great day today- it was a chance to work out some kinks, and get into the flow of it. Their first Steeplechase had lots of great moments- his contacts, his listening, and his weaves are rock solid. Jo had a moment and forgot where she was going. Which cost them 10 faults. The second run was awesome. He was perfect. Jo was perfect, it was a beautiful thing to watch. He had one bar, and placed 15th out of 112 dogs!!! Wowsers!
The second run was even better, and Sarah really gave it- Gyps performance proved that running hard makes a big difference. She placed 2nd, and of course Qualified.
This is our set up in the covered crating area. Looks all homie doesn't it... :o)
and this, is evidence of the anal-retentiveness of my friends. All our classes are highlighted, what rings we are in, what the marker dogs are- all are labeled on this handy dandy list. :o)
