LaCrosse here we come!

January 31st

Since I want to finish off Bells NATCH this year, I need to show......there aren't many local shows anymore so I decided last minute to go to LaCrosse for the day. I hadn't been there before, and didn't know how long it would take, or how the show would run. I was PLEASANTLY surprised!!!

The show started at 8:00 so I had to leave FLIPPIN early! 4:30. NOT my cup of tea. WWCDTC had its banquet Saturday night, so I packed all my stuff before I went to the banquet, and went strait to bed after I got back. The drive really wasn't bad at all. Kinda a strait shot! I got there a little before 8 with a McDonalds stop for coffee and a potty break. The show ran really well and was well organized.

Bell Q'd in 1 round of Elite Standard. She dropped a bar in round 2. She also got a Chances leg and a Jumpers leg. She finally finished off her Elite Touch and GO title. I thought we were done, but according to NADAC records we were not. I also ran her in tunnelers for fun and she had a blast and took an extra tunnel. So she got 3 more Q's towards her NATCH. I think we only need like 14 more. 6 Chances and the rest in jumpers and just a few in Standard. Gettin there!!!

Qwik went for fun and I entered her in Novice Jumpers and Novice Tunnlers for fun. She did really well in Jumpers, Q'd. She also Q'd in Tunnlers and had a blast. She likes tunnels alot.

Their Tunnlers runs are below.

I am trying to show Bell the turns are tight and she ignores me. I shoulda tried rear crosses to show her the turn...but whatever, that prolly wouldn't have worked anyways.

UKC Agility

Sunday January 24th

WWCDTC or as UKC know it, Bark River Dog Training Club, hosted a UKC Agility Trial. I had Bell entered in AG1 and AG2 Both rounds and she is going for UACH points. She has 10 points out of the 100 needed. Qwik was entered in AG2 both rounds. This was her first time entered in AG2 and needs 3 legs for the title. I also was running DeeDee the golden and she needed 1 more AG2 leg for her title then she would be going for points like Bell.

AG2 was first! DeeDee and Qwik Qualified and Qwik got first place! DeeDee had a few points off but did REALLY well and SMOKED the weave poles and teeter! She ran BEAUTIFUL and earned that last leg towards her UAG2 title!! Bell Droped a bar but ran really, really nice.

AG2 Round 2 was next Bell and Qwik Qualified with PERFECT scores. 1st and 2nd Place! Bell earned 10 more ACH points. DeeDee was missin weave poles so she just went for some fun!

AG1 was next. Bell was the only one in Round 1. She Q'd with a perfect 200, FIRST place and 10 ACH points!

AG1 round 2 was last and Bell and DeeDee both Q'd with PERFECT scores and they each got 10 more points towardes their UACH's! YAY

I was about to take our picture and then they announced the HIGH in Trial dogs and High Combined dogs. Bell got HIGH in Trial an HIGH combined for Trial 2!!! YAY

A good UKC weekend
