Key to Sea Poodle Club Trial 4/1/12

Today was the inaugural obedience trial hosted by the Key to the Sea Poodle Club at the Toledo KC. They had 2 Specialty shows Friday and Saturday, then had an all-breed obedience trial today. Since Ty LOVES showing and training at TKC, it was a no-brainer to come home yesterday after my judging assignment in Kalamazoo instead of staying on and showing at their trial today.

Two of my long-time students went into today with 9 UDX legs. Brenda Riemer and her sheltie Liza and Barb Farrah and her Flat-Coat Vegas (who just happens to be my Gryffin's nephew) have been chugging along, almost always staying neck and neck with UDX legs. They both earned their 10th leg today, so finished their UDXs on the same day. To top it off, Barb and Vegas won the Utility B class and Brenda and Liza were in a runoff for 4th in Open B.

Raissa and Bootstrap were in a wonderfully small stay group, and Boots held his stays and earned his 1st UDX leg. Kay and Belle earned their 9th UDX leg, a remarkable 7th in a row, including a 4th place in Utility B. Ty and I earned our 6th UDX leg, just out of the placements in both classes.

Raissa & Alaskan Malamute Bootstrap, leg #1
Adele & Flat-Coated Retriever Ty, leg #6
Brenda & Shetland Sheepdog Liza, new UDX
Barb & Flat-Coated Retriever Vegas, new UDX
Kay & German Wiredhaired Pointer Belle, leg #9

It was an excellent day for our Tuesday morning proofing class folks! Nice going, everyone.
