AOC Trial - Riley

Riley earned her 49th Double Qualifier at the AOC Trial in April. That means she needs 11 more to earn her third agility championship. She is nearly 9 years old so I consider a third MACH to be a relaxed goal. She still runs with her typical speed, joy, and enthusiasm so there is no reason she can't get there, but I also do not want the pressure of trying to eeek out the 60th Double Q when you have a dog that just doesn't want to run anymore.
Honestly, it would be totally Riley Greyhound style for her to retire with 59 Double Qs. It would be true to accident prone, roller coaster career. A bridesmaid till the end!  I love this dog so much!
Here are her best runs from the AOC Trial:
