We competed this weekend at the first North Arkansas Kennel Club trial. It was so nice to have another trial close by. Got to sleep in my own bed and everything. Legend had a really good weekend, although not without some of her "issues."

Saturday she had a really nice standard run but stopped to sniff-for a really long time in the tunnel, and came out the wrong end. Several dogs stopped in that same place, so although I know it's not an excuse, I do think something was in the tunnel. It's just not like her to do that. She qualified in JWW but started out really slow and finished fast.

Today she got another double Q! Her standard run was as fast as she's ever been at at a trial and was really nice. Her JWW run was obviously also a Q but again was a slow start and fast finish.

All of her weave poles were great though! I think I am going to use the same concept-independent performance and working ahead of me on other obstacles. Her weaves are so much improved and faster too so I figure it can't hurt anything to try something new with her. Plus we need the distance work for NADAC anyway.

Oh, and Trip commanded A LOT of attention from trial attendees today. Hopefully word is spreading that the perfect agility puppy is available for adoption!

Sounds like you had a good weekend, yay for double Q's! And hopefully we'll be hearing about Trip's going to a new family soon :)

Congrats! I can't believe Trip hasn't been adopted yet - he's such a cutie!
