Tommy and I decided to play at the AKC Aussie Nationals again.

Tommy earned his HXAs title qualifying both days in advanced sheep as well as qualifying in advanced rally (making him one of the MVA qualifiers)

I also qualified with both Choca (Sally Reynolds) and Hobby (Carol Jeffry) in started ducks so that they were also MVA qualifiers!

Mid South ASC Stock Trial

Dari finished her advanced sheep on course E, then a spare leg on course B. (as well as finals points both runs, but no love on ducks)

Tommy also earned finals points in sheep.

Rango earned 2 started sheep legs (E and B) under judge Rachel Vest)

Bug earned her first started sheep leg.

GSKC Agility Trial April 11-13, 2014

I ran Tommy and Lizzy.

The Little Lizard was amazing.  She qualified all 3 days in open standard, no title as it was the same judge.  Saturday she finished her open jumpers and Sunday she earned her first excellent jumpers leg!

TASC Agility trial (Chattanooga) March 22-23 2014

Again no RS-O for Tommy...  Another JS-E leg, and almost gamblers legs...

WASC of GA Stock trial (Nov 1-2, 2013)

Always a fun trial.

Tommy had some nice runs and q-ed all sheep runs, 3 out of 4 cattle runs, and 0 duck runs. He did get some placements and a couple of finals points.

Dari had an awesome trial. She was trialling in open. Friday she qualified in sheep with a 1st and ducks with a 2nd. She had a tough group of cattle, so did not q but did get a 3rd. Saturday she q-ed all 3 runs with 1st in sheep and cattle and a 3rd in ducks. 

GSKC (AKC) Agility Trial, Memphis TN (Oct 11-13 2013)

We attended our local AKC Agility trial (Tommy and Lizzy to run agility, me to build courses and run with the dogs)

THough Tommy managed not to qualify at all, Lizzy had an awesome weekend, qualifying 5 out of 6 runs.  (One run I managed to knock a jump over). She finished her NA and earned 3 OAJ legs- no title as they all were under the same judge.
