Thanks to Patswork Design & 4 Paws Embroidery for our VERY cool shirts!!
I am soooooo very proud of Ella and the way she ran at and handled her first big event and her very first time running indoors!!! Ella and Daneen were 10th in one of their jumpers runs!!
Ella lost her teeter 3 weeks prior to this event so they ran for the great experience. Ella was moving and listening!! Way to go Ella and Daneen!!!
It was great seeing the other Dals that qualified. We took a group shot of the 3 Dals that ran and I can't wait to see the photo. I will post it as soon as I get it.
I have been to a few big agility events and I have to say that I REALLY like the Invitational!!! I love that there is such a wonderful variety of breeds. And tho I can really appreciate Border Collies it was VERY cool to only see a few. The whole 20 inch class was not the usual all Border Collies with a smattering of a different breeds.
The venue was top notch this year and after last years unfortunate issues with weather and being outside for the most part we were all very grateful!!!
So for this years Invitational we had 2 agility invitations,Ella and Masher, and 2 conformation invitations, Cole and Dax !!
Looking forward to trying to qualify for next year!!!!
