Kaylie ended up finishing her Bronze Specialist Standard Merit Award and her Silver Specialist Trigility Merit Award. YAY!! And Conor finished his Beginner Jumpers Award and his Beginner Gamblers Award. More YAYS!!
We had a couple of very scary incidents this weekend though. On Conor's Snakes & Ladders run, when we got to the dog walk, he hit the up ramp with such force that it caused him to lose his balance. He tried his very, very hardest to stay on, but he ended up falling off. He scraped up his belly pretty good, cut a pad and one of his nails started to bleed. Poor little guy. Unfortunately, this fall has caused an issue on the teeter -- he's jumping off too early now. Hopefully it was just an issue on Sunday, and he'll get over it quickly. It turns out that the dog walk wasn't set up correctly, so that's why when he hit it, it bounced him up way too high. All his other runs were in the other ring, and this was the first time he was in that ring with that particular dog walk. I had noticed a lot of other dogs were also bouncing up that dog walk, but didn't realize why. And then in Conor's second Standard run, he totally busted through the tire jump. He tried to take the tire jump (the first jump) from his sit position without taking a couple steps before hand, and he just busted through it. The photographer even got a photo of it. The interesting thing about this photo is that he looks like he's 3 months old! Very bizarre. He may now become the poster boy for this new displaceable tire.
