May 20th - Kaiser completed yet another AAC agility title today, his Veterans Advanced Games Dog of Canada Title (VAGDC).  Kaiser was only entered in 5 runs and Q'd in 4 of them, that's almost 100% clean runs..... very, very hard to do in AAC agility!
Tug had an awesome Starters Jumpers run with a first place in only 28.81
seconds, yes I had to run like the wind to direct this speed demon.  His
Starters Standard run this morning was awesome also but he knocked a bar on one of the jumps, so no Q.
Baron got another Master Standard run Q, so he is almost now at the Bronze level, however we need to complete our ATCH before he can be awarded this. His Master Gamble run was very nice and he did complete the final gamble but it was over the allowed time so no Q.
Maxwell got his first Master Jumpers Q today (3rd place) with a very, very speedy run, I just about broke my ankles trying to keep up with this guy!

May 19th and 20th - The ladies  ventured off to Taylor BC for the conformation side; where Clint went reserve winners male.  Tru went Winners female to finish and Heath won a puppy group handled by Jenn an Tracy finished Whitney to be Serena's first champion ( Ch.

On the agility side Anja goes to Spruce Grove to the AAC trials and Kaiser receives a new title, of Veterans Master Team Relay Dog of Canada. (VMTRDC) with a first place qualifying run, our team partner was a 12 year old Border Collie (Boots).  Kaiser also got his very first Master Standard qualifying run this morning, he was slow but we did it with 1 second to spare!!  He was only entered in 2 runs today and Qd in both of them, way to go Kaiser! 

Maxwell completed his AAC Advanced Team Relay with a first place qualifying run, his team partner was also a Border Collie, Suzy, he now moves up to Master Team Relay. 

Baron ran very nice in all 3 of his runs but we had some small errors so no Qs for him.

Tug ran very fast in Starters Standard run and way to fast in his Starters Jumpers course, he left me in the dust and went off course because I couldnt tell him where to go next?!!!  Everybody just loves Tug and loves to watch him run as he is so speedy and really enjoys himself even if he doesnt qualify.
