Only the beginning

So I was going to wait until the end of the weekend to post about the trial but the girls were so good today I had to brag on them.

Lyric was a star! I know that's a shocker huh? But really, for a dog trained almost exclusively in my backyard, she was amazing. Being an AKC trial she was exposed to things like winged jumps that she had never seen before. I didn't even think about that but she didn't care. She had a clean run in jumpers and a first place! Then on to standard. She had a few bobbles with the tire and chute, plus a table fault but ran the rest like a pro-no fear! Ended up with another Q and a first place.

Legend pretty much rocked too. She got MX leg #8 and 15 points. She got about halfway through her jumpers run before she stubbornly took an off course. And I say stubborn because I was very clearly yelling (actually sort of screaming) "here" and she never thought about turning. But hey, she was running fast and you won't get far if you don't have that going for you.

Still have two more days of fun!

Yay! I'm so glad you gals are all kicking off the weekend well. Lyric is very impressive, considering that she hasn't been doing agility that long :) And good for Legend for running fast! Best of luck to you this weekend, looking forward to hearing about the rest of it!
