Lowri - Letters, I have MORE letters! TM may try to tell you that I was a wild child, but I was good enough to get a 1st place and two 3rd places! I won my Started B-course duck run. I was AMAZING! The judge said I was a little fast and a little pushy, but said I did a good job! I ran that course in under 2 minutes! I was so good!
Then we went and did sheep. I was the first dog, and I set the bar for the rest of the class. Well, TM says the bar was set pretty low, but agrees since I was first, I set the bar. I ran that course in just over 2 minutes. I got a 3rd and earned my first sheep leg.
Treasure ran fourth. She spent almost twice that amount of time. All of her extra time was spent on the center-line gate. She lost the sheep and then took them around the course the second time. I don't think you get extra points for that. Afterwards, TM and MC were talking. They didn't think Treasure had qualified. Turned out that the judge thought she did a pretty good job overall. She lost 10 points on the center-line, but she Q'ed! TM and MC were very happy!!! Treasure actually got trial letters before I did! She has her HSAs. TM and MC are going to train her on ducks next.
I got to run A-course ducks next. I had a very good time <G> It was raining and I did a lot of bouncing! I did manage to qualify and got 3rd place. TM said that gave me more letters. I now have one started sheep leg, two started B-course duck legs and LETTERS in A-course ducks! I have an HSAd title. It was a very good day!
