10 for 10

The baby dog continues to qualify.  Seven has qualified in all ten attempts and I am feeling pretty spoiled. This means she has completed both Novice levels and has completed two thirds of  both Open levels as well.  My lofty hope was to have Seven competing in Excellent by the time Riley returns to competition in January.  It is much easier to deal with conflicts in the running order and I would have less courses to memorize if both dogs are competing in the Excellent classes together.  Well, my hope is starting to appear achievable.  Seven has a two-day trial in December for us to give it a shot.

Here are her Novice runs from Friday.  Some minor hesitations at some of the tunnels, but no big deal.

Wow! What a girl! In comparison, how long did it take Riley to finish Novice?

Never Say Never Greyhounds said...

Thanks everyone!

Riley finished Novice in her second trial also, BUT she did not qualify in Open at the same trial like Seven has.

I can't wait for you guys to see how extremely different two motivated, high drive, small, brindle, female greyhounds can run agility. Riley is so much more explosive. You run her with early directions and subtle gestures. Seven is much easier to run with a point and shoot style.

Awesome job. The more I read your blog, the more I think I can actual have a greyhound as my next dog, and still be competitive in the sport I love to do.

You are going to have a dynamic duo in action soon.

Jealous... I still think Reagan is queen of everything in style and cuteness factor. :P

I'm glad your girls are doing so well.

If your blog got a lot of hits from New Zealand about 14 November, this might be why:

Congrats! You girls are on fire! I can't wait to see Seven and Riley run the same courses. It will be interesting to compare :)

In the mean time, could you send some the pixie dust you use on Seven over here? We could use some qualifying runs in the not too distant future ;)

lovely work you two :)

I never doubted Seven could do it, but wow! She's really taken to it very quickly! Good luck this weekend!
