Weather not too bad (that's the English in me coming out - where would we be with out our weather to comment on eh?)
Company excellent! :)
Prizes galour! well almost, on Sat we gained 2nd in Champ agility, made it to the finals but unfortunately had 5 faults :( . Sunday qualified for Crufts Team with The ESSC (English Shetland Sheepdog Club) Tri Stars. I ran in pole position and Chi did a lovely run, perfect in every way, next up was Karen Bugler with Ace, then Amy Bennett with Taz, smoothly rounding our performance off was Bernadette & Zen. Hurrah! we were in the lead. Then it was nail biting stuff - we had 5 faults, the next team had already qualified and the last team to run had some really good members. They too had 5 faults so it was all down to timing, there was only 3 seconds in it, but we won (as I've already said :))
On to the Try outs. 1st day - series of 'technical' maneuver exercises, timed contacts and a jumping run. Today 3 runs - jumping, agility and final agility run in reverse order. Unfortunately we had faults in the first 3 runs :( then went on to win the final run of the day. It was this along with our pre qualifying points for the reserve ticket at Thames that gave us enough points to be chosen as reserve for the GB World Championship team - WOOT!
There was no videoing today - far too much concentration needed for the events. There maybe photo's and videos from both events posted here and defo on the OBay site.
Gratz to the Obay Shelties for having 5 dogs on teams at the World Champs. Just goes to show wot good stuff those Shelties are made of :). I'm sure our sponsor BURNS will be pleased as well
