Had much fun this weekend at the AKC. Some friends got the last double Q's needed for AKC nationals and it was very exciting cheering them on.
Fin and I ran hard and fast. Unfortunately, my nerves got the best of me on some of the runs and Fin was popping out of her weaves when I tried my distance stuff, between the two of us no Q's. But gosh almighty, Fin ran fast! So much fun. A few times she was barking at me telling me to get a move on and get outta her way :)
Sunday ended with a clean run in Standard. I knew it was one that we could do. Learned a lesson by almost pushing her off the teeter, "Do what you plan! Don't chicken out."
Coming home from this trial, I ask myself why I do so much better at USDAA than AKC. The only thing I can come up with is that I put pressure on myself to get the Q's for the Nationals in Reno. At this point, it is too little too late. So I am going to Reno and be the best Fan I can be. Can't say I'm a little disappointed in myself, but never in Fin. She is a shining star and life is too short to worry about silly little things like Q's.
Coming up for us is an entire weekend at home. I'm not quite sure what I'll do with myself. Maybe, perhaps, clean my house? Imagine that.
Thanks Laurie for hanging out with me and videoing all my runs.
