The dogs had a fun four days at the Summer Open show at Ely. Matthew ran Brodie in the C1-3 jumping on friday and saturday as I was a work and they got clear rounds both days just out of the placings. I'm very proud of my boys!! On the friday Bracken had a cracking day as she won her Grade 6 agility (it was her first weekend in grade 6) and had a placing in the Euk pairs with Lian and her super Saturn. Fingers crossed this means they'll be off to Crufts next March!! :-)
There is a video of their pairs run on Lians blog - http://theknightsmixedbunch.blogspot.com/
I went on the sunday and had two agility and one jumping run with Brodie and again we had two clears but were just out of the placings. On the monday we had a fun day with four fun classes each. Brax did very well with a 4th in tunnel terrors (not bad for a dog that doesn't really like tunnels!) and a 5th in the C5-7 power and speed. She would have got a great placing in the steelpechase but she knocked a brick out of the wall which was the last jump. Her take your own line course was brilliant but against some of the fast G7 dogs she was 0.1 seconds out of the placings!!
Brodie unfortunately had all four of his runs in 30 mins. He went clear in the first three and then I got muddled up in tunnel terrors so not his fault! He got a well deserved 2nd in the power and speed and he ran like a loose cannon but we got round clear. He did a fantastic round in TYOL and ended up in 4th behind three G7 dogs so I was really pleased with him. Well done to our fab trainer Lisa and her super sheltie Tyler who won the TYOL!
