This weekend's Rally update: RAE legs #23 and #24

Postby Sabine » Sun Nov 07, 2010 8:44 pm

Saturday:
Quigley was especially amped up and bouncy, we had a few fits and starts, including a bungled back-up-3-steps that cost us 10 points in Excellent, some lagging and sniffing, and a typical "terrier moment" where it took several commands to get Quigley to sit at the first stationary exercise. lol We came home with one 3rd and one 2nd place.

Sunday:
Quigley was much calmer today and we had two very nice runs under a judge I didn't really think I wanted to show under again, after a somewhat unpleasant Obedience run 2 years ago. I'm glad I gave him a second chance because he really was a different person today and scored very fairly.

In our Excellent run Quigley did his Back-up-3-steps so perfectly today that several people complimented us on it. I was so excited about this, after he didn't do it properly at all yesterday. Today's Advanced run was only the second time ever so far that we won a tie for points by time.

The venue was really, really nice too, I'm looking forward to the next show there.

To sum it up: It's days like today where I want to say "I wish I could do this every weekend"!

Nicely done! It should be extra special that you came back on Sunday and nailed the 3 step backup, AND under a judge that you were skeptical about showing for.
