More wins!!

Well I may be a bit slack on my blog, but its such a busy time. Work is mad, agility equipment orders are stacking up, and we are competing nearly every weekend!
Spent Easter at Wadebridge for the Kernow K9 Agility show. Gorgeous weather all weekend, resulting in some tanned faces, and heads in Rogers case! Friday Lily won the Jumping and Olli Spaniel got 10th!! Another gorgeous trophy for Lily & Olli a well deserved 1st KC placing. In the other jumping class Lily got 5th due to my crap handling!
Saturday & Lily got another trophy, this time 3rd in Agility. I was over the moon. 2 trophies in 2 days and proving that last weekend wasn't a fluke. She really has become a promising agility dog, and after 2 years of training, starting out as a nervous manic dog who was scared of everyone, I think she has done really well. So proud of her and huge expectations now of the season ahead! We have got enough points already for the starters cup and have an Olympia qualifier in a few weeks time. I think if we qualified for that I would faint!!!!
We took our old dog Snuffles for the weekend and she loved it. I think she reminisced as she strolled around the rings watching the younger dogs, and slept cuddled up in the caravan like the old days. Also Dave the pup, well 6 months old now, and he was pretty good! Admittedly he spent Friday trying to rip the ears off every passing dog and hanging himself continually from his lead, but by Sunday he was sociable and enjoying himself. He will be on the other side of the ropes next year, winning trophies for himself I hope!
Jo had some lovely clears with Jess again, and went home with a bag full of rosettes, but I think the best part of the weekend for us all was in the final jumping class of the weekend, she kept Jed her young dog focused and he stayed in the ring, did the jumps she asked, weaved beautifully and didn't go walk about! Well done Jo & the Jedster!
We have a weekend off this week but plenty of training to do in between. Oh and Vat returns, 2 payroll year ends, 2 dog walks & a see saw & A frame to build, & a set of weaves, oh and a dog walk and 10 jumps to deliver. Ha!!! a weekend off!!
