I'll write about Saturday's race, maybe tomorrow, but for today I'd like to talk about Sunday! The beardies and I trekked up to Elk Grove in the Central Valley to participate in our beardie club's regional specialty/all breed agility trial. It was a nice way to break up our weekend and I want to hang out with our beardie friends as much as possible before we leave the state.
In the end, we had a great time! Max enjoyed his one run, in jumpers, and decided 10 weave poles out of 12 was enough - at his age, who am I to argue? He was happy, I was happy.
And Stanley...well, Stanley is starting to run like we've actually got our shit together. The mistake made were mine...run #1 - not making sure he'd pooped (oops), run #2 - not running hard past the last jump (really I should have front crossed the end of the teeter and run the other side of the triple), and run #3 - not pulling him in a little on a wide sweeping loop of jumps. But I am VERY proud of my youngster for his work!
Watch and see.
