Well it has been well over a year, but finally Baby (Am Ch Aus Ch CIB Calaban's Dirty Dancing RE ET JC (Imp USA)) got back into competition today.
We competed at Geelong Obedience Club's rally trial, doing a double event, for Baby's first time at the Masters level, and my first in heading for five years.
There has been a rule change since we last competed, with a number of new stations, so we had a bit to learn and remember, but I shouldn't have doubted that Baby would come to the table. Two very nice performances gave her a 95/100 in the first trial, and a 86/100 in the second (10 points lost from stooopid handler doing the wrong station).
Across town, son Leevi (Armahani Kunzite Kuutamo (AI) CCD RE JDX SPD GD ET HT JC was competing in an agility trial, earning a Agility Dog quallie.
