It was the second day of lure coursing trialing in NSW, with Slinky (Ch Armahani Iolite Ihana (AI)) again coming home with a JC quallie, the second she needed for her JC title, her first performance title. She smashed it too, with a 3rd place for the CAT (non sighthound) dogs! Way to go Shell.
Mum Squiggle (Ch & Neut Ch Armahani Diamond Dansut (AI) CCD RA JD HT ET JC FM WPD) also earned another CA pass.
We continued in the rally ring today, at the Melton Obedience Club's double trial, with Baby (Am Ch Ch Calaban's Dirty Dancing RN ET JC (Imp USA).
Competing in the Advanced A ring she earned passes of 95 under judge T Schumann and 85 under judge H Miller, both earning her a 1st place in the ring. While she was pretty tired by the afternoon trial after a long weekend of work, and not quite performing at her best, I was pretty proud of her for the weekend's efforts, particularly considering she is at that stage where she is carrying "fake babies".
That gave her the passes she needed for her Rally Advanced (RA) title. We'll likely take a break from the trial ring for the few left before summer, and build up a bit of trial stamina and finesses before giving Excellent a go next year.
