Achieved my Agility goals for 2008
I have missed posting lately - work and holidays haven't left much free time but I had to post this good news. I finished Open Jumpers Preferred 20" with my Obedience pup, Shamrock. After a year and a half with no Agility of any kind, we finished one title and started and finished two titles from July through December 14th - all AKC. I don't show in Agility very often so I am really thrilled. The last Open Jumpers leg was at the big I-X show in Cleveland and it can be a tough place for many dogs - large - noisy. It was a tank plant during WWII so that might give some idea of the size. We had a good run for our title and a fantastic fun through 15 obstacles in a tough Excellent Standard course and then came the weaves - for some reason Shamrock decided that 8 were enough that day - oh well. We had fun - I did what I set out to do. Now in 2009 - I'd love to get at least the Excellent A titles - S is almost 9 so I don't think we have all that much time left to compete.
And my 18 month old puppy passed his CGC test. Its so hard for him to sit still - and calmly greet someone but he did it. He's also working on Agility and starting early will help us I hope.
Happy Holidays to everyone and even more Lab successes in 2009 for all of us.
