I'm so proud of my boy. This was our very first trial, and he did AMAZING!!!
First, the bummer news though... of the 3 runs we attempted, he NQed on the last one. Argh! We met our demise at "Halt-pivot left-halt". Henry plopped his butt down for the first required sit, but then didn't scootch back for the 2nd.
I even attempted that station again, but to no avail. Oh lah!
BUT, the great news... not only did he qualify in two runs, he placed FIRST in the first run (with a score of 180) and THIRD in the 2nd (with a score of 184)!!!!!! ;D
[In Canadian rally, you start with a perfect score of 200, and from there the deductions begin!]
I'm so happy with Henry!! He also surprised me with how well behaved he was around other dogs, even those sniffing his butt. *beam*!
So thank you all for your good obedient thoughts.... they DEFINITELY worked!!! ;D
Woo Hoo Henery!!! You totally rock!!!
Congratulations, Henry the FIRST!! and congratulations also to you, Felicia! He wouldn't be where he's at w/o you. : )
I am so ecstatic for the both of you!! Way to go!
