The weekend of December 7 – 9 Aiden was entered in the Yankee Golden Retriever Agility Trial in Amherst NH.
On Thursday December 6th we met Mario for IPO training. Both boys did really well in all three phases.
After training we headed up to NH.
Over the weekend at the agility trial Aiden qualified in five classes including earning a Triple Q! Overall he earned four 1st places and one 2nd place.
On December 19th O’Connor turned 11 months old.
On Saturday December 22nd Aiden and O’Connor met their friends, Lark and Hank, at Nickerson State Park in Brewster for a nice walk in the woods and around the pond.
On December 23rd we found out that Aiden is featured on the cover of the January 2019 issue of Clean Run magazine. This is a national agility magazine.
It has been our tradition for many years to spend our wedding anniversary on December 28th in New Hampshire at the 3 day Bearded Collie Club of America Agility trial. On Friday Aiden gave us a great Anniversary present…a Triple Q !!
After the trial on Saturday we went for a lovely walk with Aiden and Connor at the Joe English Reservation area at the Peabody Mill Environmental Center in Amherst. The boys had a great time running in the woods and splashing in the stream!
Overall Aiden qualified in 7 out of 11 runs with five 1st places, a 2nd and a 4th place and earned his Time to Beat Preferred (T2BP) Title. Not a bad way to end the year! It was a fun weekend, doing what Aiden and I both love…playing agility! Jack and Connor had a good time too!
