Aiden at the BCCA Agility Trial

Each year since 2011 we have spent our wedding anniversary celebrating at an agility trial in NH. This year was a little different as Jack was still not able to go with me and Aiden. We spent the morning of  Thursday the 28th (our actually anniversary day) together and then Aiden and I headed up to NH for the Bearded Collie Club of America Agility Trial.

Not having Jack with me I had to rely on the kindness of others to record Aiden’s agility runs.

On Friday the trial was for Excellent/Masters dogs only. Aiden qualified in 2 of his 5 runs…… luckily it was the two that count the most (Masters STD and JWW) and he earned a Double Q. Good boy Aiden!

In Masters Jumpers with Weaves Aiden had a clean run in 29.34 seconds. He placed 3rd and earned 17 PACH points.

Later in the day, in Masters Standard Agility, Aiden had a clean run. He qualified in 2nd place and earned 28 PACH points and a DOUBLE Q!! Unfortunately the person recording was only able to get the second half of the course on tape.

On Saturday Aiden had nice runs on tight courses for big dogs.

In both Masters Standard and JWW Preferred he had an off course but I was very pleased with his runs.

In Masters FAST Preferred Aiden got the Send Bonus and qualified with a score of 74 and 1st place. A nice ending to another fun day.

Sunday was the last day of the Agility Trial. Aiden and I had another fun day with friends celebrating New Years Eve day!

In Time to Beat Preferred Aiden qualified in 1st place.

He had a good run in JWW but unfortunately one bar came down.

In Masters Standard Preferred Aiden had a clean run and qualified in 2nd place earning 26 PACH points. This was his 10th Leg for his Masters Agility Excellent Preferred Title (MXP).
