Oh my crazy boy Conor. We had a 3-day DOCNA agility trial this past weekend, with a possibility of 13 Q's. We got 5. Major boo hoo. Mostly bummed about the 100% failure rate in our Standard runs. What am I going to do with this little speed demon? Guess we'll just keep on practicing.
On a happier note, Kaylie went up to Prescott this same weekend with her breeder for a conformation show. She is currently ranked #22 in the country in conformation. Never, ever in my wildest dreams did I ever think she would be nationally ranked in conformation. Earlier this year I decided to show her a few times just for fun. She just isn't ready to show in Utility, so I figured I'd show her in conformation. Then she started winning! Wow! So to solidify her standings in the Top 30, her breeder said she would show her in Prescott. I could make it up on Sunday to show her and then bring her back home. Well, on Saturday, she got Best of Breed! It was a pretty large entry, so she'll get plenty of points for that win. And then the two shows that I showed her in, she won Best Opposite Sex in both!! What a thrill! So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these wins will keep Kaylie in the Top 30, and she'll be invited to the Conformation Finals at the ASCA Nationals this year. What a thrill that will be. Last year I was waiting on pins and needles to see if Conor qualified for the Obedience Finals, and now this year it's Kaylie in conformation. July 1 can't come soon enough!!
