Cruz bless him, even with my bad handling and a serious lack of coat he got VHC he coped brilliant with the day. Thank you Lindy for taking the pictures. Thank you Rach for doing a fab job with Meme, are you available on Sunday next year?
The team representing Woodgreen Animal shelter
in the Rescue agility at Crufts.
Inca had a brilliant time at Crufts, this picture was taken in 2006 the ring was much smaller then than it is now. The main ring is large which is great he really picked up speed, the jumps are kept at medium height which made him go faster, he coped really well with the astro turf, I sprayed his feet with paw wax before he went in.

Cruz was early to run in 1-3 jumping we did a fab clear in the time of 18.13 he went into the lead, but as the class had not long started I had a long time to wait. We ended up with 2nd place I am very pleased as the class had 174 dogs in it.
Cruz and I then had a run in 1-3 agility, again he ran brilliant with a clear in 26.15 earning him 4th place. I am sorry to say I let him down badly in 1-7 jumping by sending him sailing over the wrong jump instead of calling him to me, pilot error :-(............ it was my E, he was just Excellent. Onto his last class 1-7 agility we finished 10th out of 162 dogs in the class, I am very proud of him, he had lots of extra pieces of liver cake.
Inca only had two runs his first run was 1-7 jumping we went clear in a time of 20.28 earning him 9th place out of 169 dogs, he ran brilliant in his agility but sadly his natural stride pattern earned him 5 faults on the dog walk up contact, he did a lovely straight approach onto it. He worked brilliant I think he has found yet another faster running speed......LOL
Kane, all I wanted from him was his contacts and start line waits. He did me proud he went when he was released stopped on all his contacts till I said yes go, but then sadly pilot error struck again I ruined his run when I started to work a pull in before he was committed, which caused him to hesitate in front of the fence so I compensated by throwing my arm forward which sent him far to long I then could not collect him quick enough to stop him back jumping (sorry Kane).
We all had a really good day even the sun was out, we finished it with a nice walk over the fields before coming home. K9s all now sleeping.
