Getting Close

The following week we entered another agility trial in Salinas Ca. It was beautiful, old Coast Oak trees with hanging spanish moss. Wide open uncrowded venue, except for the rain it was perfect.

Saturday the rain was severe. Whisper hates the rain, I think she is afraid she may shrink into an Italian Greyhound. In fact I wasn't sure she would run in the rain. Not only did she run in the rain she won her Jumpers class.

However in Standard we accidently took the wrong jump. I got behind her in a box formation and she turned and took the wrong jump. Oh well, we tried and had fun.

The following day June 5 she earned her 19th QQ! Despite the fact she is feeling very "hormonal" and not running with her normal enthusiasm and speed.

Holding her contact position is improving.

We are getting so close to the elusive MACH.

Congratulations! Do you need 20 QQ's for a MACH? I hope so, cos it shouldn't be long now then:) Whisper is looking so good out there. Very relaxed and precise.

It's very exciting being so close isn't it ... well, I'm excited, lol! Good luck for your next trials.

Nice performance (as usual)!! I loved the comment that in the rain she thought she might shink and become an IG!! :)
