Brax is on the England Team!!

Words cannot describe how proud I am of Matthew and wee Bracken for winning the Pentathalon Competition at the WAO tryouts this weekend!! This means they win an automatic place on the England Team. The World Agility Open Championships have biathalon, pentathalon and games events so it will be real edge of seat stuff!! Unfortunately I wasn't there to support Matthew over the weekend as I had to work but they managed six clear rounds on tricky courses. Actually she did get time faults on one course for tumbling in the cloth tunnel so the first stop before embarking on any training programme is for her to see the physio and check she is in good shape!

I still can't believe that our little crazy ball of fluff is going to represent England, we can't stop grinning :)
Well done to everyone else, especially Marilyn and Tia and Bernadette with Zaz who also qualified - great to have lots of shelties competing and showing everyone what these amazing dogs can do!


  1. WOW! Fantastic! That is one great news! Matt and Brax have been working so hard for it and they well deserved the place!!

    Saturn is very proud of his LITTLE partner :)

    Go on Matt and Brax, show them how to do it and bring some medals back! WooHoo!!

  2. Woohoo WTG pocket rocket & Matt :) Shelties so rule, elegance, speed & accuracy - show those BCs what it's all about LOL! I am so pleased for you all, a brilliant achievement!

  3. Hey, congratulations and all the very best at the WAO. We will be cheering you guys on :-)
