BC&Yukon AAC Agility Regional Championships

Campbell River, BC May 15-17, 2009

We went to lovely Campbell River on the Island for Wick's first agility trial of the year! Poor thing hasn't had much (any) practice but she did very well and qualified for Nationals again. This probably will be here last Regionals at 22", and she finished as she started, with no bars down. :-)

We stayed at the Coast, across from the marina and ferry terminal.

Wick and Reveille do their version of driftwood art:

Wick, can you just SIT on a rock?

Reveille looking fluffy:

To make this picture work, we wedged Bear between the rocks. :-)

I really like this one of Carson and Kelsey. Kels is 11 years old now, and still fast as stink.

Speaking of stinking fast, hello, Phoenix!

And big congratulations to our former DAM teammate and all-around cool dog, Xena, who claimed the top of the podium in 16" Specials:

On the River SDT

From Deming, Washington, May 9-10, 2009

Tall grass, wily sheep, and a large field made for a very entertaining and challenging weekend!

You could have anything from Scotties to Katahdins, to Cheviots.

These are not short sheep, it's just that the grass is really tall!

Lou and I waiting our turn.

Lou turns his girls around the post.

And begins his drive.

The run didn't go well, but that doesn't mean that Lou doesn't get a snuggle. Thanks to Diane Pagel for this great shot!

Somewhere in the grass is Dee.

Pearse and Riel won Saturday, and the double-lift final on Monday.
