This weekend was a great weekend of agility, just the kind that I like. Lots of nice, fun people. Fun courses. Fun judge. Nothing dramatic or nasty. Typically at shows I spend a large majority of my time in my crating space, reading or listening to NPR podcasts or taking several hour walks with Panic or otherwise being in my own world. This time, I did not feel the need to do any of that. I had never shown under this club, but they put on a good show. They have a NASCAR theme, which is really fun. And they didn't run FAST! Thank goodness! They did have T2B every day, but that runs SO much faster than FAST that I'm totally ok with that.

(Sidebar: What I am really hoping for is more ISC next year at small shows, since it can be run at every jump height. The one show that did ISC around here, the Louisville Cluster, decided to no longer run it. Come on!!)

Anyway, really fun show. There were a high volume of super cute terriers, which made it all the better. Look at this thing. A parson russel puppy with the cutest, most wirey coat I've ever seen.

We double NQ'd one day because of weaves, which was odd, and QQ'd the next day. I don't know how many we have, but we show so little I'm sure we're not close to a MACh yet. Maybe one day!

Standard yesterday was a really fun and interesting course, including a tunnel-tunnel-chute sequence.

Jumpers was forgettable, but we always have fun anyway.

Great to be back at a show. Our next one will likely be the Cluster in March. I sometimes wish we could do more, but I think we've struck a nice balance. Four shows in total this year.

AKC, man.

I'm actually really trying to enter a show in December.

All the AKC shows around me do a random draw. I never seem to make it through that draw, and I don't want to have to go more than 2 or so hours trying to find a show. If I even wanted to attempt to qualify for AKC nationals I don't even see how I'd get into enough shows without going ridiculously far away. But seriously those requirements...

Money money money.
