It's time for some updates!
Zelda and I participated in this season first DM/WM selection in Roskilde kreds 4. First of all I want to thanks kreds 4 for a really nice atmosphere and event, kind people etc.
The selection started saturday morning, where we were to start with obedience, Zelda was atleast ready for this, probably too ready for it. Let me put it like this, she was loud and clear, and kinda went abeshit when we came to the dumbbell, which costed us a lot of points. For we were rewarded with 86.
In protection Zelda showed how controllable she is even she in working in a high drive and showed how effetive she really is. For this we were rewarded 93 and I gave up aprox 2.5 point because I used 3 commands which were not allowed, this was ofcourse my mistake and not something I did intentionally.
Sunday I had to go on tracking some stormy weather. Zelda showed that the wind was the biggest obstracle, her work in the corners was spot on, but what we lost points on which costs alot was two articles. That costs and we ended on 80 points, which is okay if you take the circumstances into account, but ofcourse I would have liked to get the articles.
Out of 47 participants Zelda and I ended as 11, which I have to be satisfied with, alot come up short on the track because of the weather. My goal was top 10 so becoming 11 is okay. Zelda have qualified for the second year in a row to the DM which is going to be in Randers stadion next year, which I am looking forward to!
The year 2017 have been a good year for us. In February Zelda gave birth to 5 puppies and 3 weeks after this puppies had moved out to their families she participated in her first national final in Roskilde where got 72-91-92, where Zelda on the track missed all three articles.
The year also counted a show result on Fyn and a körung in Hedensted.
A week after the trial we went to one my trial for our kredsmesterskab in kreds 67 Jammerbugt. The week up to this trial I worked on fixing some of the noice problems we were accounted for in Roskilde, and it went really really good and we were paid good for the corrections. Zelda got 98-96-96 in this IPO3. No missed articles, no sound in obidience and no non-allowed commands in protection.
All this ofcourse also says something about the willingness and heart this outstanding female has!
Lastly I want to share my gratitude of how lucky I have been to get my puppies out to Gitte, Morten and Niels Christian, it warms me that you three are so happy for these three boys as you are. That means everything!
