But it wasn't a lot of Q's that's for sure. And NO chances Q's which was the whole reason for the trip. So Legend still holds out at four and will not get her NATCH at home (well unless it's next year but let's hope it's before that!). Anyway the only Q's we got were Lyric with two in jumpers and one in regular and Legend got one in jumpers. She also got a "gift" Q in tunnelers after I ran the wrong course. We were only entered in limited things but it was still a pretty dismal Q rate.
However-we ended up coming home with this...
Meet Cade, our new foster dog. He was previously called Pepper but that didn't seem like a good border collie name to me so I changed it. "Cade" is Irish/Welsh for "small battle" in case you wondered. Although some of the details have been lost in translation the story is that his owner was moving, couldn't take him or find him a home and left him at the vet to be put to sleep. The vet didn't, and instead neutered him and called the shelter. The shelter was full and a volunteer took him from the vet to her home and somehow a friend of mine in the area was contacted. Anyway she was able to get him evaluated and it all fell together for her to bring him to the trial for me to take home. So here he is.
The owner said he was 8 months old but he looks a little older than that so we are saying 12-18 months. He's a super sweet boy-a real lover. But he's kind of shy and nervous at first. He copes well though and settled in at he agility trial after a few hours. He was resting in his crate and able to come out and meet new dogs and people much quicker than we initially expected. He loves other dogs-he and Legend seem quite happy together. He did well in the car and is doing well in the house. We will know more about him in a few weeks. And yes, he does have a pretty terrible overbite!
Someone left a PUPPY at the clinic to be neutered because they were moving. OMG. I've heard it all.
He's a cutie! I'm sure he won't be around too long. :o)
Of course I meant euthanized.... (good thing I actually looked at the e-mail notification in my inbox) lol
I was thinking you must have meant that!
Wow that's just sad the owner didn't even try to find him a new home, that's horrible.
