Squiggle was first in the ring this morning, walking away with her second RN quallie with a great score of 99 and 1st place in the ring. I was super happy with her work, especially her enthusiasm which carried throughout the entire run.
Soaks was up next scoring 72 and winning 3rd place in her ring! While I wasn't as happy with her work, I sometimes have to remind myself that Soaks hasn't been with me for that long and while we have worked together in the past, some of my cues are different to what she's used to and my style of heel work is different from what she was taught. Even still, we walked away with her first Rally Excellent quallie!
In the PM trial, Squiggle's work continued, with us walking away with a quallie on a score of 97/100 and another 1st place ribbon, a great way to finish off her RN title. The judge also commented on her lovely work ethic and focus which is always really nice to hear!
Soaks backed up the morning's efforts with another quallie on 77 points, and a 2nd place ribbon! Her work in the PM trial was much nicer, though I (yet again) walked into her on a left turn and startled her which meant the last few signs were not as nice as the first ones, resulting in a couple of 10 point deductions.
We walked away after the second trial with lots of lovely comments about the girls work and even better, managed to beat the rain and stay dry all day!
Go Lappies :D
