We drove almost 3 hours each way in order to try and get this Grand Prix Q but it was not meant to be. We were supposed to start at 6 p.m. (first dog on line) but the judge arrive over 2 hours late!
He flew into JFK and then took a limo to Hamden, CT. During rush hour? NYC? What was he thinking?
We were the last dog in Speed Jumping and had one error but compared to most people we did well. There were off courses all over the place at the very beginning of the runs. At least we waited until almost the end.

The second run was the Grand Prix run. We were the last dog of the night, after 10 p.m. Too much waiting! The course looked okay but, plop! I fell down and never quite recovered. My knees are still all scraped, but the worst was my neck, shoulder and arms! I still tried to finish but after a wrong course at the end, when Star ran to the see saw instead of taking a jump I gave up.
