Not Too Shabby

Seven had a very successful agility debut!  Four blue ribbons for four agility runs!  You cannot beat that.  You are allowed a number of errors in Novice, but Seven was flawless.  She did not run past any of the obstacles nor did she take any of the wrong obstacles.  She only has to do six weave poles in Novice, but she completed all four sets with no errors.  She had no problems with the chute.  Here are Seven's agility runs.
It will be interesting to see if Seven starts to speed up as she figures out what all of this agility trial stuff is about, but all in all, Seven did great and I could not be happier!
I would not have bought this picture if I had noticed how sleepy and unattractive I look. Ha!

Wowee, that's AWESOME for her debut!!!!
She's going to be a super star.
I'm sure she will get faster as she gets used to the competition scene, that said, she is pretty quick already!

that is great!!! from seeing her drive and eagerness to train in some of your other videos of her, I just knew she would be a star.... and the dogs are also benefitting from your experience as a trainer/handler.

Way to go, Seven! I knew she'd do great, but that exceeds expectations! I hope she got steak for dinner after that!

She jumps! She weaves! She flies through the chute and navigates moving obstacles with power, speed and finess! She's SEVEN !

Congratulations. What a treat after all you've been through lately.
