Kenz's first legs in Rally Advanced

This past weekend was the 2013 SA State Rally and Obedience Champs. Sandi and Deb were over from the West with Scoota and Brookie. It was a lovely weekend and I enjoyed their company. Nothing like two fantastic friends to make a trial seem a nice place to be.

Its an absolute privilege to watch the boys in the ring again and even when they aren't at their absolute best they are still such a joy to watch and something very very special. It was great to catch up.

Now to Kenz's performance. Kenz was entered in Rally Advanced A both days. 

A very long and hot day of mostly sitting around in her crate on Saturday resulted in Kenz's first Rally Advanced pass at her first attempt at the State Champs. Not only did she just pass but she walked away with a second place in Rally Advanced A. We ended up with a score of 91. 

Kenz's Saturday Round

Way to go my baby little girl. It wasn't an easy round for her and she was really up against it but we got through and with a fairly respectable performance. Keith Millington was the judge and she was acting more then a little spooky towards him and even he commented at the presentation that she wasn't comfortable with him.

Sunday was another extremely warm day. Kenz worked a much better round under Kathy Millington but I messed up costing us 10 for an incorrectly performed station. Great dog shame about the handler who couldn't count. She still managed to finish up third in Advanced A on Sunday.

Kenz's Sunday Round

Sunday Kenz also got to meet one of Sandi's toller pups from Cider's litter - Marley. After Kenz had spent most of Saturday trying to flirt with Brookie she quickly decided Marley was the bees knees.

A great weekend and super flat batteries even if the dogs don't.
