Latest Wonder Twins update ....

Postby Trademarkbark » Sun Jan 30, 2011 5:24 pm

These girls are on a roll!

Saturday at races:

Race 1 Steeple - OE won Final.
Race 1 Flat - OE won semi-final.
Race 2 Steeple - OE won semi-final.
Race 2 Flat - Spud won semi-final.

Nothing in conformation.

Sunday in conformation:

Show 1 - Spud won Champion class, then went on to win Best of Breed and compete in Best in Show ring. She showed her heart out!

Show 2 - Spud won Reserve in Champion class.

Racing - no wins, but some really close seconds. They (usually OE) are getting to the hole at the same time as the other dog and he's winning by literally a nose. He's bigger and more muscular, and he has no problems pushing a lady! :p

Spud crashed and burned on Steeple race 1 - she was in the lead by a length (really big deal) but on the last jumped she did a head over heels flip, then several barrel rolls. but she jumped right up and finished the race. Some dogs get spooked after a fall like that, but she shook it off and ran even better the next time. An on-looker commented that her legs were still running even while she was rolling - she doesn't give up! :)

Overall that's great news! Congrats. :)

It's good to hear Spud recovered instantly. She'll have better luck next time!

Recovery in racing is sooooo important. Lots of dogs will not finish or will alter their jumping style (jumping way too high, thus losing time) when this happens, but it didn't phase her. She ran just as fast the second round. When I went to the end to pick her up, everyone was asking if she was ok. She was just hanging out in my arms (heart wasn't even beating fast) and kissed me. All in a day's work for her I guess!

They're just burning up anything they turn their paws to!
I imagine for Spud, tumbling over one hurdle and doing a few somersaults is baby stuff compared to getting flipped and folded by a Colliewog.

Forgot to mention the lure coursing! They both ran 3 runs, and their best times were pretty impressive. Spud was a 10.61 (the fastest was a 10.04). OE was a little slower at 11 something, but she takes wide corners. I see a future here ...

Probably, and they'd be doing it about me! That's the easy thing about racing - THEY do all of the work! I can't do agility anymore because I'm decrepit - and Smidgen is not happy about it!!
