    DefaultWooHoo!! Moose got his first RN leg today! UPDATE got 2nd leg!

    Update: We got our 2nd leg today. I actually think we did much better, but I made a huge error. I did a u-turn the wrong direction (total brain fart) and so we lost 10pts! I got 85pts and a 2nd place. My SU and son came so that was really nice. I can't believe all of the cool stuff you get at these things. I got a tote bag full of rally items both days. Moose won 2 stuffed animals yesterday and today we got a nice little pewter plague. I didn't want to sign up for another show until I saw how I did today. Since things went so well I guess now I need to find a show to get our final leg!


    And I got to meet Julie - CaliforniaLabLover! (but not Monty - hopefully tomorrow)

    We had such a great time and I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would have been. But what is so funny is that I really thought we did horrible and I even called and left a message with my SU that I thought we NQ'd. Then they call us back into the ring (all 2 of us) for trophy's and to my surprise we took First place with a score of 93!.

    I did Pre-Novice about an hour and 1/2 later. By then it was quite warm (88 degrees) but Moose did okay. We lost most of our points in heel and I made a mistake when returning for stand for exam so we only got 171-1/2. But at least I know for sure what we need to work on. He actually did rather well in the figure 8 - just went too wide on one of the outside turns.

    Hopefully tomorrow will be just as good!

    See? Isn't Rally FUN!? ;D

    Sounds like you guys did wonderful! A 93 - that is a terrific score, especially for your first time in the ring!

    Angus' first score was an 88. Like you, I was sure we had NQ'd, so I was just tickled to death to qualify!

    I'm going to bet tomorrow will be even better.

    YAY Sharon!!! I came on specifically looking for news about you guys!!! Thats great news!

    Specialties are fun, they ALWAYS give our great things as prizes. I went to a match once, and got a huge rosette and a iron lab thingy for being the high scoring lab in obedience....and it wasn't even a real show!!

    As you get further into your OB/Rally career you'll find that not all dog shows are created equal. I finished Hudler's Rally title a few weeks ago at a crummy show. All we got was a green ribbon for his Q and nothing for this title. I need to remember that I need to finish the dogs off at shows that give nice ribbons instead of being anxious just to get the title over with.

    Congrats again!!!! What's going to be your next show and title??
