Hi everyone, it's Robin here: Well I finally got Dad trained well enough so that we could qualify in Excellent Standard . We're in the big time now. We went to the Mid-Hudson Agility trial this weekend and was it HOT ! It was still reasonable for the first class o f the weekend and Dad and I aced it. Not only did we Q but we got first place and 10 seconds faster than the second place dog. We already have 2 legs in Ex Jumpers and I was hoping we'd finish that title this weekend but it was not to be. We got a little frazzled on the jumpers course Saturday since we had to go over the same jump 3 times and 3 different directions after that. Dad was a little slow giving directions and I had to yell at him a lot so I missed my weave pole entry.Then on Sunday I got a little anxious to finish the weave poles and left out one pole--bummer--otherwise I'd have had another Standard leg. We were all too hot by jumpers and I ran past the last jump. Just wanted to get my drink of water. ( I have to think of some excuse)
Zeeba behaved quite well for a dumb puppy--well he's 8 months old now so he should have some sense. He met lots of old friends including Lulu his favorite BC puppy and made lots of new friends. They all say he has cute ears.
Hope you noticed the shirt Dad is wearing. He's real proud of my being a NEBCR rescue.
Thank You to Toni Mapes, Toven Shelties.
