WOW! What a weekend

WOW...that is all I can say right about now. I think we are all still in shock. Now that Sagira's first AKC trial is over we are all just SO proud of her. Sagira did amazing this weekend. She had six runs (two standard agility and two jumpers with weaves) each day. Last I left off, you knew she qualified in her first four and had two more to go with the chance to earn two new titles this weekend. Well....drum roll please....

SHE DID IT! Sagira pulled through even though she was tired by the end of the day and qualified in both of her last runs. That means Sagira is one of the first mixed breeds in the country to earn a title with the AKC. She was the first mixed breed to earn a title within our training club. We are SO proud of our baby girl. She now has her NA (Novice Agility) and NAJ (Novice Agility Jumpers) titles. She is now moving up to the open field and will be competing with some of the more advanced dogs.

Sagira brought home two new title ribbons, four 1st place ribbons, one 2nd place ribbon and one third place ribbon. (photo coming soon)

Here is Sagira's title run Sunday morning where she earned her NAJ title. She was moving pretty slow, but still came in before course time and had no faults.

Here is a picture of Sagira with the judge presenting her new title ribbon from her title run and a representative from the AKC.


Here is the video of Sagira's standard course title run on Sunday evening. She came in first place and was the only one from her class to get a Q. The timer messed up but she was well below course time so instead of making her rerun it and risking the chance of not having a Q again we just took course time. This is the last thing on the third day so she was slow moving, but still came through and got her Q.

Needless to say, Sagira got to go to the store and pick out a big ol bag of toys today.
