Emilu has gotten her first "Q" in Open!!!! This was our 5th try - I thought that it would never happen. The heeling was pretty ugly, but she did well with the other things - She even got 3rd place! (with a score of 178.5 (out of 200) - this can happen in Open, because so many dogs screw up just one thing and don't quality at all). I'm off for a swim in the pond with some friends and then a celebratory drink!
Congratulations, both! Definitely worth celebrating.

OH. MY. GOSH!!!! You are kidding!? Way to go, you two! On the fifth try. That's almost unheard of. There is a guy at my club who has a great Irish Setter...he was on #12 or so before they qualified (at the last show we went to).
This *almost* gives me hope enough to enter Simon at the show in July. Note that I said *almost.*
Oh, and what you said about Open and not many qualifiers...so true. At Simon's last show, ZERO of the dogs qualified.
I would be ecstatic with a score of 170.5.

Congratulations! And don't forget that a qualifying score = a leg regardless of how "ugly" it was. Now go get those other legs! WOOOOOOHOOOOO!
great news thanks for sharing
