Sorry I haven't been able to update...the internet connection in my room is basically crap :)
Yesterday was just European Standard, a challenging course and both Gator and Klink ran well :) Klink ended up 7th and Gator ended up 8th. Both dogs ran great and I was happy to see that after 28 hours in a van they were not going completely crazy!!! Times were 34.10 for Klink and 34.12 for Gator :)
The weather was very warm and keeping poor Klink cool was a bit of a challenge since she has already grown her winter coat!
I got to meet Wind and Vantage (Lil and Tweed from Zip's litter) and BOY have they grown! Here are a few pics of them :)
Today the weather was MUCH cooler :) We ran three courses today, Team Jumpers, Team Snooker and Steeplechase Quarterfinals.
I walked all my courses between 8 and 9 am...and didn't start running until 2:15! Yikes! Talk about mental preparation! Team Jumpers was first: Gator and Klink both ran clean, last I checked Klink was in 5th place and Gator was in 10th.
Team Snooker was...well...very challenging! Many teams didn't fare so well with this course and I have to say I was happy with how my dogs did. Klink ran PERFECT...until she sucked into me at 5B in the closing...TWEET! Gator ran great as well, but we had a bit of a moment of "miscommunication" and that ended up not letting us finish the 7 in the closing. I was still very happy with them :)
Finally...as 3:55 rolled around we began running the LAST group for Steeplechase Quarterfinals...I walked it at 9:00 am...so remembering was something I really had to work at! Klink ran first and put in a time of 27.78 and took 1st place. Good girl Stinky!!! Gator...well he started out well :) But then kinda fell apart...so no semis for Tater Salad...oh well :)
So I am very happy with how the dogs are running, the weather is SO NICE and I am excited about tomorrow...Team Standard, Grand Prix Quarterfinals...can't remember if we have gamblers tomorrow or not?
Wish us luck tomorrow and thanks for reading!
