What a great NADAC trial over the October 9 & 10 weekend. It has been 7 long years for Gabe to get Weavers Q and he DID IT on Saturday with a 1st place! Icing on the cake was getting another one on Sunday and a 2nd place! The hard work has paid off with Sandy and at 9 years old, Gabe is better than he ever has been. Gabe also Q'd in Elite Jumpers and Elite Tunnelers. What a great couple of days for the boys and me, as Rio Q'd in Elite Tunnelers and Elite Standard.
Noni found her groove! Over the summer she earned her MX and MXJ and added 3 more Double Q's towards her title. She is picking up speed and keeping her sports car turns and still finding the fun in agility!

This may be an omen of more athletes on the way!
The mud slowed me down but not Shayla Feb. 28th at Silver Bay in Del Mar. Shayla qualified and finished in first place in both her Jumpers and her Standard runs. I had to move her back to novice when she started jumping as a veteran, but this trial let her finish her Open titles, and move back up to Excellent!
Drake got his first excellent Q ever at the Silver Bay Dog Show. He fought through the rain and wind to get his first Q in Jumpers and one in Standard.
He also earned his second Q in Jumpers at Belgium Tervuren Club in March.
Shayla might be a senior in years, but she does not act like an old lady on the agility course! She has slowed down at home, but agility still gets her to jump for joy. She has continued to earn 2nd and 3rd place finishes behind dogs half her age in the 2010 spring trials. She earned 6 out of 8 possible Q's in the Hidden Valley CPE trial, including 2 titles for Regular and Handler Games. Go Shayla!
Thanks Sandy for helping me keep the game new and exciting for her for 11 years and counting.
Team Tuesday had a great CPE weekend in February---it is not very often we are all at the same trial! Jennie, Pat, Kim, Katlyn and Melissa
