The only slight issue has been a constant and at time heavy rain that has made the whole ground very soggy and also has prepared a whole evening of fun. Got a few good stories ;)
|see what I mean|
We even saw a little mini GSP pup, she was so tiny, mum reckons I was never that small... yes mum I was, for a very short time and very much earlier than her, but I was!!!
|pocket size GSP!|
On my second run, I was a bit more prepared and it was the least muddy course, so all paws and fingers crossed that we could do a good job. Unfortunately just a few minutes before our turn, the sky opened up and we got drenched by a torrential rain accompanied by wind... I don't mind it too much, was ready to run, but all the minions ran together under cover... And they say I am the wimp...
The rain slowed down and we restarted. Was still raining but at least we could see the jumps which is a bonus I guess.
Finally ready for some serious work! As usual, while I was trying to do that serious work, daddy thought it would be preferable to be rolling on the ground... I tell you these minions... He still got back up and we finished the course with only a bar down and two run around an obstacle, which is basically only 3 faults, but we still got DQed! I think the judge didn't think we could save the run and didn't realise that we actually did it... Ah well, We keep looking at the video but can't see the DQ...
|lucky we know that dad rolled in the mud...|
Yay a clear run!! That means that I got three qualification run (ok ok... daddy and I... didn't see him do a lot of jumping hey, lot of rolling yes, but ...) and to add a little cherry on top we got first place on the 600 course!
So as now I am a titled dog, I pray you to call me Sir Mawson.. Oh yeah mum said that that one was already take... I am outraged that these people think they can impersonated me! How rude... My twitter pals had the idea of Lord or Duke. I quite like Lord... Lord Mawson... yup that will do. From now on address me as Lord Mawson!
What again mum? Wot I only get Moruada Mawson Gigolo JD?? I think that with Lord in front it rounds up my name very well... tsss
The lovely GSP lass Shelbe also had a smashing start of her excellent level jumping, she got a bunch of firsts and qualis on her very first night at this level.
I'm sure there was a lot of other great runs in the evening but the minions took me for a lot of walks and runs around so I missed a lot of the gossips.
So congrats all round :)
Saw my mate Jaxon too at the start of the trial, but he just had his haircut done and didn't want to ruin his look so he wasn't too keen on running in the rain and mud. His mum is going away for a while as well so that will be a long time until we see them again. Come back soon buddy!!
|mud? where mud??|
