11/5 - 11/6 Took Caper and Race down to BVASC for the breed shows. It wasn't Race's weekend, but Caper had a great time. He won his class at all 3 shows, and got pulled for winners dog at all 3. Never quite got the points (he was the youngest male dog at the show), but he did get Reserve Winners Dog at the Sunday show. All he needs is a little more maturity.
10/31 - 11/1 Indy, Z and Race went to the Y agility USDAA show this weekend. All 3 had a great time. Race finished his AD with 2 first places in the Starters Standard Class.

3/21 - 3/22/09 It was a pretty fantastic weekend at the AKC trial. At 10 years old Z double Q'd to earn the points he needed to finish his MACH2 in spite of his mother getting lost on the jumpers course. Once again Z saved the day! He also managed a 3rd place in both classes. Not bad for one of the oldest dogs in the 24" class! An exciting day, but also a sad one as with this title Z will be retiring from AKC agility. He's still jumping well at 24", but I want him to be around and sound for many years to come. Race didn't want to be totally outdone by his big brother. He came home with an Open Standard Q and an Open Jumpers Q both with 2nd places.
