Meme gets a trophy. :-)

On Saturday the weather was not great, the ground was very wet and a little slippery in the morning, I walked the grade 3 jumping at the Easter celebration show, the course was very nice, you could let the brakes off but still needed to handle it.
I had a fairly early run in here, I watched a few run while I was queueing and noticed the weave entry was a challenge if not handled. The jump before the weaves I collected her slightly before asking her to weave.... Wow I thought she just powered away from me as if to say yes I know leave me alone, I can see them whoo! before I knew it she was sailing over the last jump, I thought to myself that felt like a good run.
Meme came 3rd we received a lovely glass trophy and a rosette and a yummy Easter egg.
What a clever girl :-)

A good weekend at the Spring @ Shuttleworth show

This is Inca's first season in Grade 6, my timing is a little out with him as he has found yet another gear, he worked really well all weekend, coming home with 4th in 1-7 BSD jumping and a clear round with best unplaced BSD in G6 jumping.
Cruz was a very good boy he went on all his dog walks without being silly, even in a class that loads of dogs where being funny about the up plank. His results 3rd in ABC 1-7 Helter-skelter, 6th in special BSD 1-7 jumping, 4th in ABC agility. Thanks Jan Ralph for the picture.

Meme was a little star, her results from the weekend

5th G3 agility out of 251 dogs

23rd G3 jumping out of 263 dogs

4th 1-7 ABC Helter-skelter out of 236 dogs

Really pleased with how Kane is running, on Saturday we got a 7th in G6 agility, on Sunday we won the special 1-7 BSD jumping.

Thank you Burns.
