Well, we did better today!!! I was feeling so much calmer and Scotty was more attentive, too. Little monkey did not want to sit on two halts (one one-leash heeling and one off-leash heeling) and decided to lag on one of the off-leash about turns (I gave him a heel command rather than let him fall too far behind). We lost 12 points. Perfect stand for exam, recall, stays, and figure 8. I need to check out video camera and see how the recording looks. Out of 11-12 dogs entered, only 4 qualified.
I hope tomorrow we will do even better. I think Scotty just wanted to make sure that we get our CD at Potomac.
Congrats on the run today!! ;D It's exciting to get titles at the specialties. I'll be there to cheer you on!!

Congrats on the Q and good score!! Way to go!!
You now have 4 First and Foremost points toward a national ranking in Novice A! The numbe one dog in 2005 Novice A had 57 points, So all you have to do is enter a bunch of shows between now and 60 days after you get your title and you could be the number one dog for 2007!!

Good for you! Second place is WONDERFUL! Hope day three is even better. Maybe by day three you will both be more used to the routine and he will be able to just relax and show how fantastic he is. ;D
