Default RE and RAE 1st Legs

Had a great time down in Decorah with the crew. Ion handled going down there like a pro. Very relaxed and even worked with me a bit after I finished my actual runs. He's looking very good.

Today was Parker's first RE run in which he looked great. Nice and loose, waggy tail, happy gate. He got a little distracted by the pivot at the rear, but UNLIKE previous runs I got his focus back right away. He took 1st.. but we were also the only successful run in our class. He DID blow his honor sit, so we'll be working that much.

Ash had his first RAE today, we had to run both Advanced and Excellent with qualifying runs. As usual Ash was on the ball. He was his usual smiley happy self, ready to go. I did goof up a little! I lost 10 points on his excellent run to a stupid mistake--I took a step on a pivot because I had a brainfart and thought it was the exercise at station 4 (yes, we'd already done it) Oops! Unfortunately, I didn't realize HOW badly I messed up until it was waaaay too late. We lost 3 points to him blowing by the jump as well, but that's ok--I'd been working control issues and had been pulling him by them early in the week. His advanced run was AWESOME! We only lost one point to a claw tick on the jump. Very nice day!

Amazing, isn't Ion's size at 8 months. He looks huge in the photo where I knelt down. I'm positive he'll be a 24" jumper in Agility. Ash JUST barely passed for a 20" and he's shorter at the withers than Ion is.

Pssst... Parker's his Grandpa. Peter (Parker's son) is Ion's daddy. He looks really tall there because he's actually pulling a bit at the leash I'm holding wanting to get to my husband holding the camera, that and Parker is slouching.

Well done!!

Ion is looking fantastic, as are Ash and Parker (but they knew that didn't they)

I always like to see more collie photos...
