After almost a year of training, Mom and I attended and competed in our first Agility Trial! It was a long hot day (outdoor trial). The temperature started in the warm range at 7am when we arrived on site and topped out at 97 degrees in the afternoon.
First round was Jackpot, we sat that one out, as we weren't familiar with the rules and how to score (Mom watched, so NEXT time).
Second round was Standard, I got to run first out of all the dogs there, because of my size. I 4" on a 129 yard course, level 1 CPE. The suggested time for the course was 70, I ran it in 59.28 for a FIRST place finish!!! No faults and it was also a qualifying score.
Third round was Colors, I almost made it, I knocked one bar off, got a NT for it, if I hadn't I would have gotten the Q on that too.
Fourth round was Jumpers, I was too hot and tired at this point to even finish, I made a half a dozen jumps and a couple tunnels then just stopped at the next tunnel (there was a funny smell in it too, I wrinkled my nose up in disgust, maybe some bad doggie went wee wee in it??)
I can't wait to show my ribbon to my trainer on wednesday at class!!
