OH! THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!
You'll be on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights!
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.
You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed.
You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

May 7-8, Feelgood Dog Sports Runnin' For Blue Skies Trial, Surrey, BC:

This trial was an amazing experience for us, definitely the most memorable we've had to date. Thanks to everyone for coming to the trial and making it such a special weekend for us! Everyone was so great, pitching in to help from beginning to end. Thanks to everyone who showed up for their assignments, and those of you who just jumped in when needed and also to those who found your own replacements when you couldn't fulfill your own assignments. That helped us out a lot.

The positive energy at the trial was, at times, overwhelming to us. Even the weather stayed great until we had the last piece of equipment put away and we started driving home! This weekend was what agility is all about for us. EVERYONE made this trial happen.

Also 1st and Q in Masters Jumpers. Em q'd in Steeplechase. She played some great agility, as well as some goofy agility. She lost her stay then got it back (again!)...and then promptly lost all her contacts (again)...sheesh. Flint got to play gamblers and jumpers...lots of good stuff...but lots of stuff to get used to...judges yelling numbers to dodge...that sort of thing. Overall a lot of good stuff to see on a just starting out baby dog. He even got his first gamblers q!  Max played really nice happy agility until he got tummy troubles...then nobody was happy...hehe...so we all decided to come home early.

 

October 22, Pacific Agility Clan, Matsqui, BC: Bash, despite being sore from a collision with a jump standard from last weekend, plays some good agility qualifying with 1st places in Advanced Team and Masters Jumpers. Way to go little one!
