Seekers were first in on Saturday and were joined by Neville and Sandra, our new team members! The dogs ran so well and only lost TWO of the races throughout the day! After starting the day almost losing on lights, the team pulled themselves together and went for the win, the last race of the day could have meant first place for them, but it was not meant to be, it was an excellent race and Northants took first place, Commando's second and we happily were in third. A MUCH more successful days racing than we had previously had!
Starters were next in; Calluna, Amber, Summer, Kai and Harry. All the dogs ran really well, despite being distracted by the lack of centre netting in the run back area, rather poor form on the Tournament Organisers behalf in my opinion! They came last bless them, but seeing as three of the dogs were brand new to starters I am super happy with the progress they are making!
Last but not least, Chasers raced on Sunday, running clean all day and not losing a single race all day! We finally won Division One! Digby ran his heart out, having had at least one false start on every leg and still managing to run 4.2's at the end of the day. Inca seeming to race the opponent dog, but not running faster than 4.3 for some reason, Jasmine decided she was better at running herself than her Dad and so sent herself at one point! Which ended up being hugely early and almost costing us a leg! Cheeky girl. Bracken also did fabulously, putting Digby in his place after he was "head bobbing" at Jasmine, she managed to pull out some low 4's too!
This was our last two day tournament, seems like we have only just got started and the season is already over. We still have Drax to do, which is almost like a two day event, but after that it's all indoor, competing only once a month, but training hard when we're not. Watch out for us next year, we will be making waves!
