Then Olive and I qualified in Advanced A rally with an 85 and first place for her second RA leg. It was getting hot and we had a long wait while the ring stewards tried building a 4" jump with duct tape. The jump fell apart, and they had to build it again with even more duct tape. Olive seemed hot and tired on the course, but she did everything. She has yet to fail an exercise, but we're getting more slow to respond and out of position deductions than I'd like.
It was getting quite hot by the time Olive and I arrived in Escondido. In Open JWW, Olive did 12 offside weave poles (yeah!) but picked up several run-outs and NQ'd.
The big excitement of the day was that Olive got her Novice Standard title! She went into the wrong end of a tunnel and ran wide at places, but got a 95 and first place, 4 seconds under course time. No problems with the dogwalk or teeter. We are very happy that we won't have to stay late for Novice Standard anymore. :-) -- Diane & John"
You and your crew were hot today in more ways than one! Congratulations. I am very proud of all of you.
