T&A show and some chilling!

Mr and Mrs Toad having a bit of a chill out this weekend after a busy day on Saturday! Brooke loves to do froggy legs, she frogs at dogs and people that she really likes :-D

Sometimes the cheapest toys are the best! Can't beat a manky old milk bottle!

All the girls wanted it, even Diddle!

Group photo, Toad wanted to be off mousing, not posing!

We went to T&A show on Saturday and had a lovely day out, met up with lots of friends and the dogs had fun. Brodie and Sparks first class of the day was a tricky agility which neither went clear in but somehow Toad came 2nd with 8 faults!! He ran round the tunnel under the Aframe and got time faults too! He also won the LH 5-7 jumping, really pleased as loved the course set by Wendy Clay. Here is his jumping run

Spark started well on the same course but it all went a bit wrong half way round, she redeemed herself by winning the C4-7 helter-skelter and Brooke bean came 2nd in her height! It was a proper helter-skelter and a great blast for the end of the day :-D 

The gingers had fun with Sparks toy!!

Have some very exciting news that I'm not allowed to say anything about yet but hopefully soon as not sure I can keep it secret much longer!!

First rally show of the year and some agilitying!

I took Brodie and Spark to their first Rally show of the year in April. It was Brodies third level 4 (but I have been disqualified for going the wrong way in the previous two so not had a qualifying score yet!) and it was Sparkles last level 3 and it had the dreaded food bowls in it! Here is the course plan for Sparks L3

She worked really nicely and ended up with an excellent score of 202 and 5th place! The winner got 206 so it was very close!

I love the dog behind her in this picture! :-D

This is Brodies level 4 course, no food bowls but it had a jump in it which he has struggled with in the past.

He worked amazingly well and won it with an excellent score of 206!!

Looking proud of himself!!

We have also been to some agility shows over the last month and unfortunately although Brooke couldn't play as she was in season Spark and Toad have done well! Ethan enjoyed holding Brodie for the prize giving and is going to have a go at running him next week when his Mum and Dad come to their lesson!

Brax enjoys shows for mooching around, sunbathing and sleeping nowadays, she is doing well :-) 

This last weekend we went to a UKA show and Brooke was back competing. She won her jumping with Matt and Brodie won the CSJ qualifier with me so we are off to the Grand Finals again!! He really is such a dude and I just love running him

 And here are a few cute photos of the younger two from the weekend...
