I had a lovely birthday weekend competing at HJ show in Witney. The weather was fairly kind to us and we were finished all of our runs by 2pm both days. My lovely friends spoilt me as well! Heidi made a choccy cake on the Saturday and also did very well with Jenson pupski getting a 2nd and 3rd. It was also Caroline's birthday on the Saturday so we had a mini party and cake kindly bough by Helen on the Sunday :) Caroline did very well with her doglets, qualifying Bobby for the CSJ and Ripley for Beg Steeplechase!!

Brodie did a really nice run in the CSJ, I managed to get him E'd on the 5th obstacle as I forgot to say 'left tunnel' so he went in the wrong end - stupid mummy! It was a 'good' E though as he worked round the course well and I managed to do some layering and other tricky bits well. Caroline has a video so will post in due course. There are some lovely photos of Mr Toad taken by Emma Elliot here. He also won champ jumping on a fast course by a good margin :)

Brax was slightly wild in her agility!! Haha she launched herself off from halfway down the dog walk down plank and her Aframe was terrible - she had fun though!! Her jumping run was awesome  and she got 2nd place - only 0.3 seconds off the winner, a lovely sheltie called Charlie.

Brooke did NFC agility runs both days and did a seesaw in the ring for the first time. She wasn't worried about the fact it was a aluminium seesaw and did her contacts perfectly :) Matthew ran her in the Beg jumping competitvely and although she was E'd she got her weaves from a tunnel nicely and worked well. Unfortunately in the Beg S/C qualifier she fell over a pole and landed on her head - poor puppy! She seems fine and ran the rest of the course really well. Brooke also had her permanent UKA measure and is 'toy' for life!

Brax ran agility NFC on the sunday and her contacts were much more sensible! Brodie was a star again and won champ jumping. The agility was a shame as he had a pole down (v unlike him) but ran well and was 8 seconds faster than the dog that won! Bless him :)

I am using the old laptop and its crap and won't let me access photos off my phone so will have to get them off next time :(


  1. A very successful weekend for j9! Love those pics of Brodie on that website, he really does look like he's smiling the whole time. He clearly enjoyed his weekend too! :) x

  2. A good weekend all round then! WTG Brodie shame about the pole. LOL pocket rocket!
