:sad Hi,

Well this was not a good start to a 3 day agility weekend with a MACH mathematically possible :sad . I dropped the last bar (double jump) on my standard run. The last jump was about 8 feet from the fence/gate and since Mom slowed to avoid running into the fence, so did I; but it was too soon for me to slow and I took down the last bar. Then in jumpers, I got into the weaves but didn't "weave" fast enough and missed getting into the second slot. I think if Mom would stay behind and not crowd me I wouldn't have this problem. Hopefully she has learned from her mistake and not do it again tomorrow.

Solo, the so-wannabe-MACH cocker

Keep working with Mom, Solo. You are both so close. I know you can do it and will be looking for a great report on today's activities.

:hi Star,

Today there is Good News! We got QQ #19 :joy.
The standard run was funny because Mom did a 360 degree turn before a jump. She thought I was coming up on her left side and I needed to be on the right side to make the jump. Silly Mom :wnk . I was in the correct position, took the jump and went out and took the correct side of the tunnel. Mom was happy that this course ended with a tunnel so she didn't have to worry about me dropping the last bar (again). To prove that I can take a final jump and not drop the bar, I took an extra jump coming out of the tunnel.

Standard run http://youtu.be/gGWklMRQaeI

The jumpers course (no tunnels were used on this course) was a nice flowing course with multiple off course opportunities if either dog or handler forgot to pay attention. In the video you can see that I'm not very speedy and Mom is pretty cautious. But it was a Q.
Jumpers run http://youtu.be/tn3vh-GWDHA

So when is the MACH :?: :dk . Maybe tomorrow? Maybe at Nationals?
Maybe someone needs to check a crystal ball :wnk.

:cool Solo, the-ever-so-close-MACH Cocker

Woo Hoo!!!!! Yipeee!!!! Am SO happy for my pal!!! You are SO close, how exciting! I loved the videos…especially your mom, she's fun..mom did a 360 turn yesterday with Gemma and Gemma was on the wrong side and she missed the jump, but us boys, we're smart aren't we?
Loved watching your films! My little brother already reported yesterday on FB, but I'll repeat for everyone not on FB…C.C. won Open JWW and finished his OAJ, now the little rug rat is in EXC in both.
Me and my mom Jolie got QQ's…mom held my contacts and Jolie has running,,,so she got 21 points and I got 20 and in JWW we both got 11 points,,,Mom took me the SLOW route so I wouldn't go off course…geeesh.
And Gemma was really bad, she didn't wait at the start line in either run, and in JWW she just blew out of the weaves..mom thinks it's some sort of post something depression, that's a people disease,…don't think Gemma has that, thinks she's just a brat :dk
Mom has no videos,,,she was a crazy lady running the 4 of us.
Anyways,,,your pal is cheering for you!!!!! All paws crossed…soon your will be MACH Solo!!!!
Your Pal Andy Boy
Now at 13 QQ's and a wanna be MACH star

Hi Solo,

Karlie and Kaitlyn here shhhh. Mom said not to say anything but we don't want you to think we forgot to do something for your OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE. We ordered The Mach Cake for the WCCSC agility trial in Sept, We figured that trial would have a lot of your friends there to help with the celebration. Can't wait. :YAY :YAY :YAY :YAY :YAY

Wonderful! We can have MACH cake for our West Coast friends in September and MACH cake with our midwest and east coast friends during cocker nationals in July.

BTW -- Did you know we are TEAMMATES again for Rally Team? Mom just dug out the rally book so we can practice. I haven't even thought about rally since last summer.

:cool MACH Solo
