Two legs towards AKC CA (Coursing Abitility) title!

Postby Trademarkbark » Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:19 am

The Collieswogs did great, despite the 90 degree weather and no shade!

Smidgen ran consistent and coursed well, changing direction as the lure did. Dora was a little overheated, so started out strong, then slowed to a trot and watched the lure string to see where it was going and cut a corner to meet it, then ran again. I'm not sure the sighthound people saw what was happening - they probably thought she was losing interest, but the herding people would have seen it.

Both did great and passed both their runs, so just one more each and they'll have their first level Coursing Ability title. :)

No UKC lure coursing here, so they can't compete. There is only one AKC lure coursing trial to come this year, but there are 6 days of terrier racing.

Congratulations to you and the Collies! Can't let the terriors hog the spotlight all the time. :)
