We just got back from the first day of our three day AKC agility trial in Cincinnati. Not a bad day!
I ran my Standard run, and got 6th place out of about 30 - 16 inchers. Dog there are some fast pups over in Ohio! We even ran against a couple of pups that have finished at the top national levels of competition and were just within a few seconds of their runs. So we felt pretty darn good about our Standard run today.
Our JWW run was another story. It was in a ring that was super narrow and really long, so it had way, way too many twists and turns - and had two places where it was fairly necessary to layer. Mum found out today that she's not good at layering jumps with me. We've never done it, so Mum wasn't surprised that we didn't do it well. I was pretty speedy and Mum just could get there, so I took an off course. But she didn't mind, I was running good for such a twisty turny course.
We'll have a complete recap probably on Monday. And the best part? We finally got a really nice run on video! Woo hoo!
