A Quick AKC after getting back from Alaska...



Had a really fabulous run with Fin on Sunday after being gone 10 days.  My husband thought I was  a little crazy for going to a dog show after getting home so late.  Even so, I was ready and headed up with my best friend and super spectacular Fin to try out getting that elusive double q.

Standard didn't result in a Q, after a self release start then a blasting running of the contact, I was hard pressed to keep up with her.  We made up our own course for a while until I figured out what I wanted to do, and ended  the standard run with beautiful weaves, an almost stopped A frame, and tight jump sequence. Perhaps a little contact work is in my and Fins future.

Jumpers was fun, fast and straightforward. 

The drive home wasn't too bad and got home at a decent hour.  This week, focus on work and prepare for a big end to August with two huge USDAA shows.......maybe even an ADCH?!?!
