This is our last trial before Baby Rodgers gets here, so we wanted to make sure we got out and did our best.
Oliver had a pretty great first day.
This trial is a little bit of a change of pace, it's inside at Sports City in Blue Springs. It's great to be off the dirt for a change.
This trial also is different because they added 2 extra events, and changed the order of the runs. We're hoping that it will give us a little bit of an advantage in certain events.
To the footage!
We started off with a BANG! Not typical for Friday night, but Regulars was first up. If you recall, Oliver surprised all of us with a Q last trial we went to...I had high hopes. And it turned out to be a good thing. He pulled it off again! He had to repeat the weaves once, but we got it on the second try. We also beat the course time by 10 seconds. When he's on, he's really on.
Touch N Go was the second event for us. This is typically his best event. We're in the Open class for this event. You can hear..just as we were getting ready to go, they decide to make an announcement..for a full 30 seconds. I think it really threw us off our game. He took the tunnel first, when he was supposed to take the dog walk..and we had a little trouble at the end too. Damn.
Tunnelers was last on our list for Friday night. We've been chasing the Novice title for a year. Well folks, we finally got it!! This was a great run, and a great course. It felt good all the way to the end. His speed was great. He really pulled out all the stops. I'm so proud of my boy!
We're back for a short day tomorrow..stay tuned.
