Rosey and Solo are sleeping so I get to do the posts today. Rosey earned her 21st QQ, 10 more MACH points and was the High Scoring 12" Cocker at the West Coast Cocker Spaniel Club Agility Trial this past weekend.

Rosey owes Solo for her receiving the High Scoring 12" award. You see, 16" dogs ran the jumpers course before 12" dogs. Solo had a BEAUTIFUL, QUALIFYING RUN :YAY , but was only 1 second below course time. And 16" and 12" dogs had the same standard course time (very uncommon, generally 12" dogs have 1 - 2 seconds longer to complete the course). So I knew that for Rosey to have a pray of making course time, I needed to do some handling changes. Mainly -- no lead out. I had to run and push her through the course. I did those changes and Rosey also made course time by just 1 second. She had already qualified in her Standard run, so she had double q's for both days.

The other 12" cocker that was in the lead for the high scoring award ran the jumpers course clean, but was over time. But her handler hadn't realized that until after the scores were posted (up until that point we all thought she had won because she was leading Rosey by more than 10 points). But once all the scores were posted -- Rosey had 4 qualifying runs. Several dogs were behind her with 3 qualifying runs. This is the first time Rosey has won the 12" High Scoring Cocker award at our trial!

Solo's only mistake in standard was missing the weave entrance. He just goes by too fast and hits the second pole entrance instead of the first. This is something we will work on. We don't have another trial until 9/25. I was very pleased he didn't drop any bars, despite the triple being after the teeter and the double being at the end of the long standard run.

There may be hope for the butthead yet :evil.

Wow, Colleen, what an exciting and successful weekend! Congratulations to all of you! It seems as if you are on a wonderful streak of QQ's. May you accumulate those last MACH points much sooner than you expect. (Remember to let us know when it seems that you'll get them so that we may try and fly over for the big event!)
