Last weekend he came 2nd in grade 3 agility at Billingshurst, this weekend at Newlands he came 1st in another grade 3 jumping, 236 dogs in the class. We ran the course really smooth, very together, it was one of them runs that you know when you finished it felt good.
Picture taken by Alan Score.
Inca: Was really good getting 7th in G5 jumping and 8th in G5 agility.
Kane: did a fantastic clear in G6 agility which I was really pleased with, it was very tight in places, he was really listening.
Meme: I have been doing some work on her weaves this week, (at last). The course went jump, jump, turn left....... Meme went jump, jump, straight on jump and weaves Wahoo, she got them LOL. Just need to work on her doing the right course with myself. She did a really good agility round stopping on all her contacts beautifully, this time she was to busy to do 12 weaves, back to training.
She had another jumping run, I made a mistake by chatting to a friend in the queue she watched her go and sit on the grass eating her burger, when I put her on the start line she did have a glance over to her but i was not worried. We set off at great pace until the course took us into my friends direction..... she decided she would check if she needed any help finishing her burger, kissing her all over. She did come back but I brought her out the ring. Youngsters don't you just love em! you never know what they are going to do.
A big well done to Grace with Kiah in her first grade 2, winning the jumping and 3rd in another. This partnership is lovely to watch.

She has been staying here for four weeks.
Bella has gone to her forever home today, to live with a family and four other dogs. I will miss her terribly :-( but for a change my head ruled my heart, her new home can give her alot more time, training and will also love her to bits.
I will get to see her alot at agility shows and look forward to one day seeing her compete.
See you soon sweet girl, not goodbye
Kane worked really well in this, sadly my bad handling let him down. :-(
Confessions for my very patient trainers:
I assumed he would take the jump coming towards me after the tube tunnel, I carried on moving to the finish without helping him at all, he did exactly what I asked him to do, (nothing).
Brilliant dog, shame about the pilot.
I did learn how to run him past jumps thou. Thanks David for the video.

I swept the leaves up from a huge oak tree that is my neighbours, took some weeds out our shrub pots, jet washed the slabs and decking area, then a job that has needed doing for years was treat the kennel to a new coat of wood stain, it now looks good enough to put the dogs in, shame its used as a storage shed! our house is there kennel as my husband would say.
If I wasn't busy on Sunday I could have done the housework aswell, oh well its there for another day. Hehe
I am going to meet my great nephew Harry tomorrow, who is now in an open cot and is now weighing in at 3lb. Bless him.
