First Excellent Qs

At our last agility trial, Maddie earned her first Excellent Standard leg and finished her Excellent Jumpers title.  That means she is now competing against Riley and Seven and can start earning Championship points in Jumpers. Here are the runs.
Maddie had moved up quicker than I thought she would.  I hope we can get the Standard title finished soon so she can start earning Double Qualifiers.

Since there are so few greyhounds competing in agility in the USA..... or anywhere in the world actually, it is likely that Maddie will qualify for the Invitational. The Top 5 of each breed is invited to the event. Riley and Seven are already qualified, but I do not like to run Seven on mats with her bad wrist and with Riley turning 9 soon, I figured all the big deal events were behind us. But a friend mentioned taking Maddie. That running our baby dogs with no expectations, but to have fun would be.... fun! So I might just do that.
