WE DID IT!!!!!
Kona now has his UD title!!!!!! ;D
We qualified with a very decent score of 188 1/2 and a first place under Phyllis Broderick.
Here is the break down :
Signal exercise 3
Scent one 1 1/2
Scent two 1
Kona did not go all the way across the ring on the go outs but did go far enough past the jumps to qualify. What was nice that alot of my friends were there to see us qualify. The first judge I had shown under for Novice A was judging Utility B and saw the excitement in our ring and asked me if I had qualified. When I first met Don he had just tried to show the Novice A heeling pattern and came up lame on the fast. I was the only medical professional there and handed Kona off to someone else while I examined his leg. I treated him later that day and the next morning. I see him off and on at shows that either he is judging or I am showing at or stewarding. Our training director is lining him up for our 2008 show and we were teasing him that we supply our own PT for the judges.
All in all a great day for us!! I'll come down off cloud 9 later this week!! ;D
