Well Mom and I spent the weekend in Escondido at the Australian Cattle Dog Club of Greater Los Angeles herding Trial. I was entered in two runs on saturday-one ACD only and one all breed and then one run on sunday-ACD only. Well it wasn't a good weekend for me-I didn't qualify in any of my runs. On saturday, I missed qualifying by one point! I had a qualifying score but I lost 50% of my points in my outrun,fetch and drive! Everything else in the run was good! And today, I would have qualified, but lost 50% of my points in the cross drive and panel! The silly sheep bolted to the pen! Mom and I tried to get them back-but they were being more stubborn than me! And I'm a cattle dog! Oh well! I did win a raffle prize! A bag filled with Tennis Balls!!! Mom said I'd like that better than a ribbon any day!
While we were there, we watch a cattle dog named Mr T run in Advanced Cattle! WOW! What a cattle dog! He was amazing! He was jumping up and flipping in the air. mom said it was the most amazing thing she had ever seen! He unfortunately got timed out-but it was a fantastic run!
Our next attempt at two qualifying runs will be in Llano on May 31st and June 1st! Lets hope mom and I get some good practice in before then!!
