10/29/05 and 10/30/05


It was a beautiful weekend for coursing in mid-Ohio, Cali completed her JC at the AKC trial on Saturday.  Ribbon and Woody ran both days to earn their JC, they ran fantastic!  I let Cory run after the trial and he was as fast and enthusiastic as ever...his reward for having to hang out all weekend.

Beautiful day for coursing at Lake Erie Metro MGA trial here in Michigan.  Ribbon and Woody ran singles with Woody finishing in first place and Ribbon in second.  Sassy ran open and finished fourth.  Cali is still nursing her puncture wound from last week.   Morgan and his owner Jennifer came for the afternoon and to practice. Morgan was so happy to see all the dogs and really showed no interest in the event- that is until we set him up in front of the lure and at tally ho he took off after the lure like an old pro, what fun to watch that innate desire!

We had a day of ASFA coursing in Utica, Ohio; weather was cool and drizzly.  Cory's daughter Julie was 2nd (her second trial), Sassy was 3rd (her first trial running in open), and Cali tied for 4th (she did not run off due to injured front foot; appears at this point to be the result of a foreign body in it) from the Open class.  Sassy finished her AKC JC test after the trial.  Ribbon ran the full course in practice and was amazing, great cornering too!!

Beautiful day at the MGA Lure Trial in Metamora, MI.  Cali placed third in open (her second trial, not too shabby for a girl who thinks she's in whelp).  Sassy ran singles placing second and was certified at the end of the day, now she can really participate!  It was Woody's (Countach) second practice and wow, he was bullet fast!  Ribbon saw the lure in practice for the first time and said "Really mom, I can go?  By myself?  I can go, now?" and was gone.
