Dylan is recovering well and was able to travel with us to New Hampshire. We left the Cape late yesterday morning and got to Manchester early enough to take Ivan and Dylan for a nice walk along the Piscataquog River. We had a great time. This continues to be a strange winter and it was in the upper 4o’s and sunny.
Today Ivan was entered in the Eastern English Springer Spaniel Club Agility Trial.
Ivan’s first class was Novice B FAST. He got 68 points but ran over the course time and ended up 7 seconds over for an adjusted score of 61 points. Ivan qualified with a 2nd place for his 3rd Leg and Novice FAST Title (NF).
As Ivan earned his Novice Standard Agility Title last weekend I moved him up into Open Standard Agility. In his Standard run he missed the weave pole entry costing him 5 points but he qualified with a score of 95 for a 1st place and his 1st Leg. He was the only dog in his height division to qualify on a relatively tough course.
His last class of the day was Novice B Jumpers with Weaves. He needs one leg for his Novice JWW Title and he seemed up and ready to go but such was not the case! On a course that I thought was very fair and doable he knocked the second jump and crashed into jump #11 and therefore did not qualify.
