MUCH Better!

Well, I thankfully redeemed myself today! We had a more involved course and I managed to not skip any of the stations! Hooray! Not only that, but we qualified with a score of 95 and a second place!! Bess was so good! Especially considering that we started off the course with the off-set figure 8. Yeah, that was kind of a harsh way to start the course and there were a few dogs in both advanced and excellent (that's how she started the excellent people too) that didn't do so well on that station. It was also a little tricky going over the broad jump into a halt. You sort of build up momentum, only to have to real it back in quickly in time to halt at the next station. So overall I'm quite happy with how we did.:o)

I got a third place with Mia in her class, so not much there. Though I am happy to say that two of Mia's brothers finished this weekend! Morpheus finished yesterday and Abu finished today. Mia's sister Mable also picked up a major today by going Best of Winners. The Daynakin family did very well this weekend!:)
