We had Molly entered in our dog show this weekend on both Saturday & Sunday. Sat we had put her in the afternoon session because I work in the morning but of course it was 90 degs out. She does not do well in the heat. We were both competing at the same time as I was doing Rally & Popster doing the obedience. I was able to move up so I could go first . I have done nothing with Molly since I went back to work in April but Popster has been taking classes & working with her everyday. Rally is easier in the fact that you can talk to your but you have to memorize the course because it's 10 points off if you do a station wrong. You need to score 70 out of 100 to qualify. I managed to get her a little "reved" up & we did okay until the last one which was a figure eight & you have to cross the center 3 times & I lost track & did one extra.......duh! It was okay tho I got an 85 so managed to qualify. It was finally Popster's turn & Molly was so lethargic by then, she wouldn't do any sits during the on leash heeling, & during the off leash heeling she stopped during the about turn & just stared into space. DQ! Poster was devastated but that's just the way Molly can be!
Today was a whole new day & being on first thing when it was cool made a big difference. We left her in the car & I didn't get her until it was time to go in the ring. She got in a panic cus she wanted to find Popster & he was staying out of her sight. We flew around the course & I was amazed that I got her to do everything. We not only qualified but got a 3rd place finish.
Now we had to get through obedience. I don't think I breathed the whole time she was in the ring but she got the job done with the heeling on & off leash. Everthing else she's pretty steady on. The only thing left was the one minute sit & 3 minute down. Again I didn't breathe but she made it & got a1st place. Phew!!!
I have more pics & I will post them later
