Reggie Does it!

Wow what a day! I am so proud of my Dog ! As the above picture shows....we were flying around the course!

We took 2nd place out of 50 dogs in our first ever competition run in jumpers ( hurdles!)! I was in shock and also all smiles as we took a nice red ribbon home. But there was still was another run that I had signed up for . Tunnelers ( yep you guessed it....the dog goes through tunnels!)

We sat through 6 hours of cold and rain to get to our 2nd run of the day ( nice planning Mike, pick the first and last events of the day !) for tunnelers. I thought hurldles were a challenge....this was another story. The ground was mud and the turns required to get to the right tunnel, were very sharp.

Reggie and I aced it! We finished 1st place out of 50 again! I guess I know what it feels like to be a coach that watches his young player become a star! :-)

He did great!
