Blue and Truly were entered in JWW at an AKC trial this weekend. The 'best' part was Blue finally finishing her MXJ! She finished it Saturday and got to do some distance practice on Sunday. I (teasingly) got called lazy. I now understand that the AKC mentality is if you can run with the dog you should or you're lazy (or it's not right, as I heard last trial). It's okay for crippled people to use distance, though. Not like distance work is way more complicated than running with the dog... Oh, and this was probably her last AKC trial. I figured I'd retire her from AKC after she finished her MX and MXJ, because I don't feel the need to put her in Preferred and start over, when I don't do much AKC anyway.
Truly had a nice run. I felt it was a lot smoother than her other Open JWW runs, even though she popped the weaves. It's funny because I could see her speed change 4 poles before she popped and could see it coming. She's always had a problem with trying to do things faster occasionally and then not knowing how to control herself at those speeds.
Oh, and I made $15 for drawing. I'm going to try to sell sketches again at the NADAC trial this weekend. Can't wait. I'm hoping Blue doing fairly well on the AKC course bodes well for some bonus lines.
