Run4Rescue 2011

It was time for our annual trip to Wichita for the NADAC Run4Rescue trial.  We decided to make it a little more interesting this year by taking 6 dogs and 3 adults in one vehicle!  Surprisingly, and thankfully, that went very smoothly.

And the girls had a really good weekend.  Friday night they both Q'd in weavers which finished Legend's Open title. Saturday Legend Q'd in Jumpers but had two slightly out of control regular runs so no Q's there.  And she did FINALLY pick up her first Novice Touch and Go Q!  This is sort of embarrassing for a dog that is running elite in every other class now but the curse has finally been broken!  The elite chances course yesterday was very doable but she seemed a bit pooped out and I didn't get much out of her.  Lyric had a beautiful jumpers run but with a bar down.  She did finish her Open Regular title though but had an off course in Touch and Go.

Today they had a super day.  Legend Q'd in Jumpers again and picked up two more Elite regular Q's to help us get a little closer to NADAC nationals.  She gave it a good try in chances but still needs some more distance work.  Lyric had an awesome jumpers run this morning for an open Q and than had a really nice elite regular debut on a 23 obstacle course!  She had one refusal which we fixed (they don't count in NADAC) but sadly a down bar kept her from a Q.  I was so proud of her though.  She also Q'd in tunnelers to finish her novice title. 

After that we traveled four hours in the rain to get home so we are beat.  I will try and post video later this week.
