Results From Our Second Open A Trial
We Amber did much better than I did again. We lost 1 point on heeling and F8, 1/2 point on DOR (front), 1 1/2 points on Retrieve (She didn't watch me throw it and thought a leaf was the DB and so ran a curve to the DB, also a crooked front), Retrieve over high lost a point for a tick and a 1/2 for a crooked front, Broad jump was a 1/2 point crooked front. So we ended with a 195. After groups they called us back (I thought for awards) and as I walked into the ring they asked me my number then they took my leash?!?!? Oh crap I was in a run off!!! I wish I had known before I stepped into the ring...lol We did the heeling pattern again and then they called in another team, then they called in another team, then they called in one last team.. Turns out there was a tie for 1st and a tie for 3rd. It was suspenseful waiting as they called the placements. The good news is we won our very first run off and got 1st place. We are now 2 for 2 in Open A both with 1sts. Hopefully our luck will hold out for tomorrow and we will get one more leg for our title.
