The weekend

Chris had qualified for the Royal Canin finals on Saturday night, and had a judging appointment on Saturday for the UKA show, he thought long and hard wether to do it, but felt that it would make him think about something else for a while, so I scrimed on Saturday for him and he judged at the show, at the end of the show they ran the final, and compared to last year in the rain, the weather was glorious, Shaun Hunt judged the final, the course was just right some handling and a good course to watch. Chris did a lovely clear round and ended up 3rd, Lisa did a lovely clear round and won the medium, I did video Lisa and Chi on my phone, durrr wish I had thought to video chris too, but it only dawned on me after he ran that I could have videoed him too never mind, I will upload the video of Lisa's run in the next couple of days.

I ran both Jess and Todd at the uka show, Jess did a lovely training run in the agility and Todd had a run by in Chris's class, and I did a training run in his agility, his A frame was really good, I love the UKA shows especially for a young dog, its so good to be able to train in the ring :0)

Sunday was St. Edwards show, and I had 4 runs with Jess and 3 runs with Todd, Corrie is still not running at the moment as she cut her foot at Hinckley and it has only just healed it was not particularly deep but right on the edge of her paw and she kept catching it and making it bleed.

Jess ran brilliantly all day, she came 8th in the 6 - 7 jumping and 5th in the 5 - 6 jumping, in the kc qualifier, she was doing a lovely run, but I gave her a wrong turn command, and for a change she actually did as I asked and ended up back jumping a jump, really I was over the moon with her as she would usually go the way she wanted to go. Then in the grade 6 agility her see saw was a bit over zelous and she flew it, this is her worst contact, as I think some one who will at this time be nameless posted a picture of her on their blog doing exactly that !

mmmmm and Todd had 3 runs, what can I say, I think that I was maybe a little greedy !! he won 2 classes and came 2nd in the other one, unfortunately I don't have any of them on video, but he ran his heart out, he is really enjoying it and I just get such a buzz from running him too, he gives his all every time I have run him, he is strutting down to the ring in his harness, which I now think he has associated with going to run, as the second it goes on him he tells everyone where he is going, it makes me laugh not sure that everyone else finds it that funny but hey there you go life's tough eh :0)
Todd just looking toooooooo cute for words :0)

and this is what Delila thought of Jessie's rossette !!

On the way home from the show, we went for a lovely walk at our local woods and we ended getting home at about 9 oclock very tired but very happy.

My predictions came true; I knew Todd would come out with a bang!
:-) It is jut the beginning for you two; he will only get better.

I am glad his harness does the trick! Hex and Zen get the same way when their harnesses go on! What barking??? I don't hear any barking!? :-)
