Attended a couple of matches today...an all breed match and a sporting dog match. Essy was in breed only today in both. Murray was in Open and Utility in the all breed match. Everyone told me he was the only dog that looked like he was trained out there today. He had a pretty good day.
In Utility, he grabbed the wrong article (new articles...still trying to work out how to scent them and converting him to hot scent) but other than that he would have qualified. His go outs were really, really nice...all the way out, straight and fast, even had someone comment that they loved to watch Murray's go outs because they were so quick. ;D The 2nd go out he decided to lay down instead of sit but I'll take that. He took both jumps as instructed so I was beyond THRILLED!!!
In Open, he did everything with gusto again. He looked really good until he anticipated the DOR. :-\ Considering that the last couple of times he showed he was confused about the signal exercise and the DOR, I'll take that hit as well. He did a number of auto finishes (carry over from Utility too) so I know I need to work on that but over all I was very pleased with both of his performances today. ;D
He shows in UA in 2 weeks so we've got time to work on some things.

The short story is she took two BoB and one Group 1. ;D
Meghan took tons of pictures so I'll post some once I get them downloaded.
