And we got 4th place out of like 17 dogs!!! We NQ'ed on our 2nd run-thru because she was just hot and tired and her heeling was sloppy, but after her heeling she got minus 0 on the exercises - we could have had a nearly perfect score! Oh well.
I cannot tell you guys how thrilled I was with her behavior. She barked at a few dogs, but once I crated her in my car she settled right in and relaxed/slept. Her first run-thru there were no other dogs in the building, and her 2nd run-thru there was only one dog in there. So I know that helped. But she did so well! Once we were in the ring and working, she was so focused! It was amazing and I'm super excited.
And I'm sorry, but I did NOT have to go through a window so there are no pics/video of me having to hoist Inara and myself through.
We are both exhausted - it was a long, hot morning. I think a nap is in our near future.
