Bourbon made it into the ring for the first time this weekend in York, PA. I entered her since I was going to be there anyway with Rugby. Then well after the closing date for the trials had past, I found Rugby’s entries still in the envelope at home. Opps! That meant there was plenty of time on Friday and Saturday to focus completely on Bourbon.
I knew that the trial site would be a little distracting for her so we got there early to let her settle in. On her first day in the ring, she earned a perfect score of 100! That was only good enough for 2nd place though, since the other dog with a perfect score was a couple of seconds faster than her. The next day we both made mistakes and earned an 87.
Videos of each of her runs are below.
Sunday was Rugby’s turn to show and he was sooo happy he had me all to himself. He messed up his Utility run when he second guessed his decision on the leather scent article. Then he redeemed himself in Open B and earned a 196.5 for second place.
