Legend and I are back from another weekend of agility. Although it was not a bad weekend it was not quite as good as last weekend. Yesterday there was a hard entry into the weave poles in standard. The temptation was to go up the dogwalk and even though I barely managed to stop that she ended up entering the weave poles at such a hard angle she couldn't get bent around to make the second pole. Then she bailed on the teeter again. Whatever. I can't predict that one. She seemed a little stressed in jumpers and was really dragging her feet. We got a Q but with only 1 point to show for it. Today she was having a super great standard run. She was happy, fast and relaxed. And missed the perfectly straight, on-side weave entry. Grrr. I thought the jumpers course today looked like a lot of fun and was hoping it would be a good run for us since she was so relaxed in standard. But she was again a bit stressed and running slow. Faster than yesterday but still slow. Then I must have pulled her off a jump-I totally didn't see it but I saw the judge. And she didn't do the poles right. So not a whole lot to show for all our work this weekend but we are definitely working weave poles between now and the next trial!
Trialing is tough. Sorry it didnt go well. Diana
