This time we had an easy course which suited the big powerful dogs. I ran 10th, there had been at least 5 clear rounds in front of me so I knew I just had to go for it. We finished up 6th, just out of it, again, [I was 6th twice last year].
We had one of the biggest shows of the year at the weekend, Rugby. It's a great show, very well run, a nice venue and good classes. I did train quite a few classes but also put in a good performance in the Championship class finishing ................6th again!
Finally today [Monday 13 July] we went to try out for the FCI World Championships to be held in Austria later this year. Gwen Roberts set up some very challenging course which I really enjoyed and after three rounds I was lying 3rd; the top three qualify.
The last round was very tough. I was running three from the end. There had only been two clears out of 12 dogs. We didn't make it either falling foul of a very tight weave entry, where many others had already fallen foul.
Overall I finished ................6th I think!
