|I agree with others about having too many stories to write, but here's mine for today.
Aslan was in Masters many years ago. I was injured, so my friend was running him. He had gone outside to do business right before the Jumpers with Weaves run. He and my friend were having an amazing, fast run when just two jumps shy of the finish, he stopped cold.
He sat down and began chewing his butt and chewing his butt. He chewed down there for about 15 seconds before finishing and continuing with the last two jumps. It was downright embarrassing. Because he chose to sit down and chew in his third between jumps, he did not receive a refusal. And although he spent probably 15 seconds out there chewing, because he was so fast, he easily made time.
The judge walked over to where he had been butt chewing afterward to see if there were any droppings left behind. Fortunately, there were none. If there had been, he would have been NQed for eliminating in the ring.
My friend and I were laughing though because it was the only time I could remember up to that point where he did not get a placement ribbon.
A fun point of rule, if you do not know what I mean when I say, "his third between jumps," you'll want to learn that if you do AKC agility. It's a very handy rule to know.
