April 16, 2015 . 5:54 AM // everything is a bit messy at the moment, but I’m finally done!
My exam is in two hours, so that gives me a bit of time to have some breakfast and review a few things. I’m feeling surprisingly alright for someone who has pulled an all nighter. (Well, almost all night, I napped on the floor for an hour).
After the exam it’s back to work on my programming assignment. I’m certainly going to make sure I make time to sleep and relax this weekend. It’s been an extremely exhausting and productive week. (I say that every week, tbh).
We usually compete in CPE (and sometimes NADAC). I tried to hold off on entering AKC because I knew it was more competitive and less forgiving compared to other agility venues and I just wanted to make sure Gatsby and I were really ready before I entered us.
We just had 2 runs yesterday: Jumpers with Weaves (JWW) and Standard. We qualified in both! We placed 1st in JWW and 2nd in Standard. In the 8″-16″ jump classes, Gatsby had the fastest time with 28.95 seconds. Out of all the jump classes, he was second to a border collie by 8 seconds. We scored a 95/100 in JWW (he got one refusal).
In Standard, we got a 90/100 (ugh, two table faults), with fairly good time. He nailed all his contacts, his start line stays were GREAT, and he got his weaves done.
I couldn’t be any more pleased with how we did yesterday! I’m so so so proud of this little nugget. So lucky to have him as my corgility partner.
