|State fair was this weekend.... Ursa did pretty well.....
In Showmanship she got a 98.5/100 and an award of merit but didn't place . (There were over 20 kids.) The reserve had a 99 and the champ had a perfect 100, both were my friends so I was happy. She lost a point on her teeth... even after two mom who were a vet and a groomer telling me her teeth looked fantastic for a 9 year old. The a half a point on the question "Name two types of club meetings." The answer was project and business, but I could only remember project. Ah well, I learned my lesson... always groom, groom, groom. As my leader said, "They're like free points."
In Open JWW, we got grand champion with a 95. I was a little too trusting of her weave training so she missed the entry, but it was a hard course for most people, so we still won.
In Open Standard, I was the only intermediate so obviously I won grand champion. I hadn't practiced the A-Frame in a while so we lost 5 pts with a run-by. Other than that though I was very proud of her.
I didn't qualify in OB because of the stupid stress-diarrhea that Ursa seems to get it the obedience ring... ah well.
In dog bowl, our team won! There was so pretty tough competition but we made a great team! One of the girl's dad treated us to ice cream... it was yummy.
So when is your guy's state fair??? Good Luck!!
