We've had a very busy summer, and I can't believe it's almost over. And that means that it's almost dog show season! Kaylie, Conor and I headed to Utah a few weeks ago for an AKC agility trial up there. The whole family was supposed to go up, but Brandon ended up being chosen for the President's Cup All Star team, so he had to stay home for that. The dogs and I just went up for the weekend to compete in the trial and then came home.
Kaylie had an almost perfect weekend by qualifying in 5 of her 6 runs. We've never had an AKC weekend that good! She just dropped a bar in her last Jumpers run of the weekend. It was still very exciting to get two Double Q's in one weekend. That puts us at 12 Double Q's and 677 points. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!
Conor had a fantastic weekend too. Although he Q'd in just 3 of his 6 runs, the runs he did Q in, he placed 1st. He now has two Excellent Jumpers legs and one Excellent Standard leg. The three runs he didn't Q in he just made a small mistake in each one. There was no running around like a dog on crack. It was two years ago that he made his AKC debut at this particular show. I'll never forget that feeling of pure craziness in the agility ring. Boy has he come a long way!
We're heading to Pinetop over Labor Day weekend for a DOCNA agility trial. Can't wait!
