Last weekend, we went to a local NADAC trial and totally lucked out in terms of weather. No rain at all… and this was just one day before Tropical Storm Sandy was due to hit our area.
Highlights for Lil include BRILLIANT running contacts all weekend long. 🙂 She had incredibly low hits on the A-Frame and her new running dog walk looked better than ever! She also ran her first ever Elite Weavers course (3 sets of 12 poles) at 4.14 YPS and even did one set of poles 20-25-ish feet away from me (no video :(). Lil is now running ELITE in all classes except for Touch N Go, where she needs just one more Open Q. This is pretty remarkable considering she only did a couple of days of NADAC when she was 18 – 20 months, and just started doing NADAC again in June 2012.
Jake also had a great weekend. It was very windy on Sunday, which makes him higher than a kite, but he kept his head and ran well and fast both days. Highlights include his fastest Jumpers run to date at 5.14 YPS. 🙂 He also had a lot of really nice moving contacts, which I am very pleased with since we have just begun playing around with them vs. 2o2o. The thing I’m most proud of is that I was able to call Jake back around to take a few missed obstacles and he stayed totally engaged and happy. I used to have to keep on going or I’d lose him. Jake’s resiliency has really skyrocketed this past year. 🙂 We also had a funny moment after Jake’s 4.27 YPS Weavers run when a friend complimented me on how great Lil always runs. I had to point out to her that it was Jake, not Lil! YEY Jake!
I could not be prouder of Jake and Lil! 🙂
