Well, the second day is over (much earlier than yesterday). Todays runs were just as good as yesterdays. My first run was Excellent A Standard. I started off kind of shaky at first and shut down a bit when dad had to call me off, but then once I went into the chute I started having fun again. Then it came time to get on the table and there were people playing basketball in the court across and that scared me a bit so I got a refusal on the table. The rest of my run was just beautiful though. I was getting past things that some of the really really good dogs were messing up. Mom and dad were very proud of me even though I didn't get a Q.
Here is the video of my standard run (you can hear my instructor talking in the back ground saying good girl, etc. haha):
My second run was my Excellent A Jumpers With Weaves (JWW). I was a bit slow in my weave poles but mom and dad said that is perfectly fine with them because most of the dogs were missing the entrance to the weaves since it was such a tight spot from the jump. I was the only one in EX A my height to even get a Q so I earned 1st place as well. When we were checking the results some lady insulted us as we were standing there. She was like oh only one dog Q'd and look how slow it was. Well lady...all I have to say it that I might be slow, but at least I got the Q didn't I????
Here is the video of my JWW run:
Mickey update: They found out that he was on a medication that was depleting his system and draining his bone marrow. They are taking him off of it and as long as his bloodwork comes back okay he will get to go home tonight. Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes.
Samick update: He is still hanging in there. Not acting as if he is in any pain, no more blood has been seen. He is eating as long as we are mixing in more and more canned food.
Check back tomorrow to see who I got to meet at the trial today...
