Axstane



Just been to Axstane for 2 days it was a nice show but quite busy to try and keep an eye on all the Grades/sizes in the 7 rings (and watch lots of agility and get to chat to lots of people!)

On Saturday Cadbury just had one clear - 6th in Medium 1-5 Jumping - in the 1-7 Agility he popped over the wrong jump and in the 1-5 Agility he doubled in the weave poles but coped with really well with the 3 pull throughs.

We had a breakthrough on Saturday - little Jaf my Apricot Poodle (aged 4 - photo above) has been worried over the see-saw for a long time and in the Small 1-5 Agility he did a lovely run with a really confident see-saw and out of 133 dogs came 8th - he has had a few placings in Jumping but this is the first placing he has ever had in agility and I was very proud of him :)

On Sunday Roger came along too and he got 8th with Josie in Grade 4 Jumping and naughty contacts in 3-4 Agility (1 out of 3) so we tried an experiment with me running her in 4-5 Agility and her contacts were much better (2 out of 3!) - more work needed Mr Brown ;)

Cadbury was a bit wild in his 1-5 Jumping but did manage a messy clear and came 7th, he did a nice clear in 1-5 Agility with a reminding hold on all the contacts as he has been getting a little cheeky running them when he should stop and came 5th. We got an E in 3-7 Jumping 2 jumps from home he popped over the back of the start jump but he ran lovely.

Jaf had a lovely clear in Small 1-5 Jumping but was just out of the places, in the Agility he remembered he was scared of the see-saw and it took a bit of coaxing to persuade him it would not eat him!

No clears from Fleet but he did some nice bits in all 3 of his runs. Foggy - bless him - got 6th in Anysize.

Really pleased for Nancy and Niamh on their win in G5 Jumping and for Sue White and Merc who were 2nd in the Gamblers so qualified for the Final.

Watched Britains got Talent on TV - not sure how the Opera chap won - I liked the monkey chap and the 2 little girls!

Hi Lorna

Very well done with Jaff I know what a struggle it has been to get him to do the seasaw x and well done for all your other places this weekend

Well done with all your results, especially Jaf with his 8th place - that's just great news and well deserved.

It's nice to see your results as you always highlight everyone elses!
