I’m baaaack…Posted: October 19, 2009
After being gone for a week, I arrived home yesterday afternoon. Rick flew in Thursday, picked me up and off we went to sight-see for a couple of days. Sight-seeing in the rain makes for some rather interesting images, which I’ll share later.
The dogs did awesome National Specialty week, from Stevie’s 5-point major to Margo’s wagging tail to agility superstar Josie. With the exception of two third places – and, hey, third ain’t bad National Specialty week! – each FFT dog won her class each day shown. There were a total of four Specialties; each girl entered a bit differently, showing one day perhaps not another. Stevie – FFT Take The Money And Run – started the week off with Best of Winners from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class and ended it with RWB at the National. Not bad for a puppy! Ella – FFT Melou Well Said – won the open bitch class twice. Candice – FFT U Can Do Magic – won the open bitch class under Ray Sledzik and placed 3rd at the National.
Wednesday Melissa ran both Suds and Josie in agility, for a total of 5 runs. Wow! Run! Josie! Run! She is phenomenal! Fast as the wind and full of enthusiasm. I mean FULL of enthusiasm. She was, bar none, the best dog running. So fun to watch! Suds was solid in both his runs, with good times, earning a new title. Let’s see if I can get this right….I’m trying to learn the agility details. He earned his last qualifying score for his Agility Novice title – denoted with NA after his name. And a ribbon with Bling!
Before heading to work, with lots more to tell, I want to share this photo I took in-camera from the window of the Motel 6 Rick and I stayed in.
