Quigley and I earned our RAE2!

Postby Sabine » Sun Sep 19, 2010 4:02 pm

Compared to earning our RAE at the big AKC show in the Long Beach Convention Center (with a "new title" photo taken by a professional photographer and all that jazz) it was a bit anticlimactic, but I'm so very proud of our accomplishment.

While the average of all 20 scores for the 10 double qualifiers only went up a tiny bit from 87.95 to 88.4 compared to the first 10 legs of our RAE, our overall scores improved quite a bit:

RAE
70s: 1
80-85: 6
85-89: 5
90s: 8
Placements: 2x 1st, 1x 2nd

RAE2
70s: 2
80-85: 3
85-89: 2
90s: 12
Placements: 1x 1st, 3x 2nd, 3x 3rd, 3x 4th

I don't have a really good pic yet to memorize this event, but some time this week I want to take one of Quigley with all his ribbons we earned on the way to RAE2.

Thanks everybody! :)

I do like the pic above, but it was taken with my Droid, so not a really high resolution image suitable for printing. I'm planning on putting together a photo book at some point, so I'll need something different.
