So we left bright and early Safurday mornin'. Not a cloud in the sky here in our Santa Cruz Mountains.
We drove and drove. We hardly had to make any stops. One big stop we did make was to give some lady in a magic window sum $. She then let us cross over a big bridge she was guardin'.
Finally we got to Folsom about 10 o the clock. My division, Junior, would compete at 1 o' the clock. So I had lotsa time fur practicin'. Fun!
There was 17 dogs in the Junior division semi-finals. Junior division dogs are dogs that have been jumping 10 to 15 feet throught out the year. The top 12 dogs would go on to the finals on Sunnyday. We could see these dogs meant business. 3 dogs had already jumped over 15 feet and it was not even my turn yet!
Finally, when it was my turn, I jumped 12 feet even on my furst jump. On my second jump I jumped 13' 03". We were pretty happy with that one! I ended up placin' 6th in the semi finals, which meant I could come back on Sunnyday fur the finals.
This meant we needed to find a place to stay Safurday night. The folks had done a little research in case of this situation. So the ma called a KOA in West Sacramento. They had a cabin we could stay in and were very pet furiendly:o)
The next day, Sunnyday, we hadta be back by 10 o' the clock fur the finals. Again, competition was fierce. They start with the shortest jumpers then move up to the longest. I was in the middle o' the pack.
On my furst jump the ma threw my ball pretty good! I did 14' 11"! My second jump was 13' 03". We were very happy with my jumps. Normally jumps like this would have placed quite high in the Junior division. But several dogs jumped well over 15 feet. Good fur them! So I ended up stayin' in the middle of the pack and got a 6th place ribbon fur the finals. A very solid performance that we are proud of!
