Talking Full Rally Weekend!

Headin' off to a show in St. Peter this weekend with my crew and a friend with her two Collies. We're taking my van, A.K.A. the Collie Wagon, over that way. I'll be showing Ash in RAE on Saturday, Parker in RE on both Saturday and Sunday, and Ion will be debueing RN on Sunday. I know we'll have a fun time out there. My friend will be running the camera for me, so I hope to have plenty of coverage when I get back. Wish us luck!

Lovely!!

Parker looks like he's still asking 'Why Mom, why do I have to sit so often'...

Yeah, that's about it! Sometimes he just snaps down, other times it's that kind of behavior where he seems to be asking if I 'really' want him to do it.

And the results are in for day 2!

Parker now has his RE! With a score of 94 he took first place. He was once more hesitant to sit, but this time we didn't loose 10 points to him lying down on the honor sit. YAY!

Video: YouTube - ‪Parker: Rally Excellent A title run, St Peter, 5/29/2011‬‏

And Ion went out there like a little trooper! Got a little distracted out there and we got dinged a few points when the leash got tight. Easy to fix. And we lost a few points to some slow sits, again easy to fix. He was up, happy, and clearly enjoyed being out there. My sweet boy took home the 3rd place ribbon with a score of 92!

Video: YouTube - ‪Ion: Rally Novice 1st leg, St Peter, 5/29/2011‬‏


Our score sheet... Parker is R20, Ion is R45




Ion shows of his first ribbons


Parker's ribbons with his new title rossette. So proud!






Above is our sweep of ribbons and because we placed in each run we got toys too! 3 turtles and 2 fuzzy bones.
