Heat wave, hoopers and Novice Qualifier!

Last week was a heat wave and it hit 30 degrees on a couple of days! I was trying to start work by 7.30am and finish by 11 before the dogs got too hot. It was perfect weather to have a BBQ and take some garden pics though! 

I love the water droplets on this flower! 

Our runner beans are slow this year!

 The sable shelties had a day out at a Hoopers show a couple of weekends ago! They were awesome, Bru won a class with a brilliant run and Brooke came 2nd with me and won with Matt. Although she needs us to run more she really enjoyed racing round now that she is doing less agility. Matt was brave with Bru and did the 3s challenge line in the class that he won and the 5s won in his other run, Bru was excellent but missed a hoop!

Brookes 2nd placed run in assorted

Bru winning assorted hoopers

Spark and I recently did our first champ of the year at RVA this month, she was brilliant and only had a little blip in each run, this was her champ agility...I'm so pleased with her dog walk exit!! 

And this weekend we went to Empingham and Agility Club to give Bru a chance at the Novice Crufts Qualifier. Unfortunately they have changed the format so its done as heats at various shows rather than at KCI. Bru managed to win a G5 jumping at Empingham and the Novice Q agility at Agility Club so he has qualified for the semis at KCI next August (which is bonkers as its for Crufts 2023!!)

Brooke did one run at Empingham and really enjoyed herself...possibly too much as she ran off the end of the dog walk and got put back on! 

Spark just had a weave blip at Empingham but otherwise did a stunning run. She did champ at Agility club and had an unlucky pole in agility but I was thrilled with her time as she turned the wrong way on a jump and was only 2.3 seconds off the winner! Her jumping was an E but very pleased with the rest of it, some distance skills were needed!
