Truffle's second Open class, I threw the dumbbell
poorly, it bounced way off to the left, and Truff
did not go out over the jump, she went directly to
the dumbbell which was directly in her line of
vision. She did come back over the jump, go
figure. But her work was really good in the other
exercises, and she was happy and engaged, which is
great for her second trial, after being there
almost 8 hours. Very good day with my smart girls,
and lots of good friends and other smart dogs!
Thanks to judges Sara Jacobs and Linda Ferrullo,
both very nice to show under.
turned the tables on her daughter Annie, and beat
her in both classes on 7/26/14 at Blue
Ribbon Dog Sports Coaching LLC WCR Rally
Trial in Andover, NJ. They are both working on
their ARCH titles, and both got another double Q. And they got some
placements in large classes, so I was very proud
of them. Truffle got 209 (Fifth Place) in 1B and
207 (Fourth Place) in 2B. Annie got 208 in 1B
and 207 (Fifth Place) in 2B. Perfect score in
World Cynosport Rally is 210 because WCR has an
optional 10-point bonus at the end of each
course. Thanks to Linda
Sperco Blue Ribbon Dog Sports for putting
on the show, Linda and Sara Jacobs for judging.

This was Rebbi's first trial. Mert brought him
down and took him home so he wouldn't have to stay
His first run I NQ'd him because I misunderstood the
rules about food. It said you could use food
at any time
for the Puppy class, and I didn't realize it had to
be in your pocket and not your hand. But his
was even better and he got First. A video of
his run is on his
Truffle also finished her Rally Level 3 title (with
all first places) but I forgot she already had a

I wish it were
clearer, but I guess my phone video isn't that
great. At the end she veered off
crooked on the backup. It was my fault, I took her
too close to the wall, and she felt the
pressure of the wall behind her.

She lost three
points because I gave a second cue to go over the jump,
she looked like she wasn't going over.
