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.
We came home with one 3rd and one 2nd place.
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"!
