Phew....after a very hot weekend we are finally home and back in our air conditioned house. Don't think we will be doing anymore trials in a hot building without air moving or more fans going.
Sagira is resting up from her busy weekend. Just wanted to update you on her trial today. Her first run was Novice Fast. She earned her 51 points in just 17 seconds and earned 3rd place with a Q. This is more like Sagira, was early and not so hot and she was moving fast.
After that we had to wait several hours before her next run. Next up was her Excellent class Standard run. For those of you that don't know about agility, excellent class is the highest level you can get to. You are not allowed any mistakes, you have to earn 100% in order to qualify. Sagira pulled through even though she was hot and did awesome, she got her very first Q in excellent AND also got 3rd place. Not bad for a little ol mixed breed competing against some of those border collies (they are SO fast). We are not expecting many placements since she jumps 20" and is up against all the border collies, but we were beyond excited when she got her first Q in excellent and a ribbon.
Her last run of the day and in the hottest part of the arena she had her Jumper With Weaves (JWW) run. She also got yet another Q and 3rd place. She gave it all she had.
So all in all she had 6 runs this weekend and got Q's in 5 of those runs. We are SO very proud of our girl (and Jeremy).
Here is a photo of Sagira with her dad and the judge that judged her Open Standard yesterday that earned her the OA title.
We are on vacation all week, so Sagira is going to be having a blast at the dog park and just relaxing around the house. I also see a trip to Moochie's to pick out a new toy for doing so awesome this weekend.
