On Friday we went to an AKC trial where Star got her second Open Standard leg and a second place Q!
She had one refusal and the fastest time. This the largest dog show in the entire state and there were over 5300 runs. So we had tough competition but my little girl was in top shape. In JWW she knocked one bar, a single jump, so no Q but she was the fastest of all dogs and she ran beautifully!
Saturday we went to a USDAA trial for two runs, Masters Jumpers and Masters Snooker. Guess what?
Ms. Star got her first Masters Q in JUMPERS, yes, you read that correctly, in JUMPERS! AND... a second place. We are now running against some hugely experienced teams those who go to Nationals and Star was PERFECT! I felt as if I had won the lottery.
Sunday we went back for three runs. We ran Advanced Gamblers which we don't need just for fun (we are in Master's Gamblers) but it gives Star an opportunity to get her crazy energy out of the way. She did well but knocked one bar.
The Standard run, which is the one that I want most of all she got faulted for a contact and dropped a bar.
The third and last run was Advanced Relay and we ended up with a first place Q!
I have videos of some of the USDAA runs, forgot my camera for the AKC show. I have the two bad ones because by the third one I had felt that the camera was a jinx.
I'll post them when I get a chance to download them.
