Obedience Trial, Jackson, Mississippi

We traveled with Tracey and her gang to Jackson, MS for AKC obedience and conformation.  We only played in the obedience rings.  On Saturday Kirk earned the 3rd leg in Beginner Novice to her his first obedience title (recall video is here).  Spice earned her 3rd leg in Advanced Rally.

At the close of the day we signed up for time during the obedience match.  We got to practice a few minutes of exercises and then do a set of novice stays.  We also signed up to take CGC testing.  When all was said and done on Saturday both Kirk and Spice had earned 3 TITLES EACH!  Kirk his CGC, CGCA, and BN.  Spice her CGC, CGCA, and RA.  This will probably be the only 6 title day in the history of my dog sport career.

The highlight of the weekend was Tracey and Kayak completing his championship with another major.  We packed the hair blower and tack bag with us to the show so we could get him looking perfect.  I held him in place (no room for the grooming table) while Tracey groomed.  Our teamwork payed off - he strutted his stuff for another 4 point major.  He finished up his CH before his 3rd birthday with limited showing.  Awesome handling job by Tracey.
