More trophies for the youngster's

Quest is really coming together him and Sian gained a 3rd in grade 3 jumping.
Chi got his head in gear and finished 2nd in grade 3 jumping at different show, Margaret said he had a spin on the course which probably cost him the first place. Well done to you both, give them a big hug from me. X

Vyne today

I'm soooooooo pleased Kane has qualified the ABC semi today at Vyne, Inca got 16th in G6 jumping and little Meme got 7th in G3 agility. Bless her she was really funny in the ABC agility the tunnel was under the A frame, (going from the right side on the approach, to exiting on the left the down side of the A frame) you could either push them away from you or front cross before to pull them into the tunnel which is what I did, I crossed back to the other side as she went into the tunnel and we lost each other. lol. The A frame blocked her view as to where I was as she turned right when she came out going across the front of the A frame, but I was waiting to collect on the left, apparently she stood on her hind legs like a mear cat looking for me. We joined up with her going all the way around the A frame to finish clear put out of placings. hehe. Must sign off now and finish packing for tomorrow.

Whoops not updated for a while.

Kane & I are now going to Prague to compete at the Belgian Shepherd World Champs next week. This is the first year the organisers have allowed a reserve dog and handler to be entered, sadly one of the squad members dog has an injury and has had to be withdrawn which has put us in. I have been running around like a headless chicken, doing paper work, sorting out the other dogs washing, packing, shopping, I think I'm almost done. You take so much for granted when you have all you need in your van, then you have to think what you need for your dog and yourself at at a show 750 miles away?

I really enjoy the courses abroad they seem to flow but challenge your partnership, without turning the dog inside out on multi pull through's. I also like the wider weave spacing for these large dogs.
Other good news was the show at Wallingford, Inca has qualified the ABC semi final which is held at Tatton Park, we got a 3rd place in the class out of 305 dogs.
I have the last attempt at getting another in this weekend at Vyne, again a large class. The weather seems to be looking like its going to be kind to us for a change.
