Jam: 1st Place Novice Standard!!!

Good girl was very windy.
At today's BCDC Agility trial, Jam had a perfect Novice Standard run qualifying with a score of 100 and earning 1st place for her first Novice Standard agility leg.  She was the only 24 inch dog to qualify.  The course time was 73 seconds and Jam flew over the jumps and across the contacts in 56.95 seconds, 16 seconds under course time!
Jam patiently posing for her win pictures!
Her Novice Jumpers run was terrific, even staying through a two jump lead out, except she had one wrong course, which isn't allowed in jumpers so no qualifying score there.

Trixie had two very respectable runs but no Q's.  She dropped a bar in her Open Standard run, which was otherwise flawless and 20 seconds under time.  We were haunted again by the weave poles in her Open JWW run, and she needed an extra try to complete them, giving her two refusals where you are only allowed one.  All in all, we had a great weekend, with the girls showing everyone what awesome agility dogs Weimaraners can be and what great ambassadors Jam, Trixie and Savi, who came along for the ride, are for our breed.

The weekend had more exciting news when we found out that Jam's sire, Parker, CH Hibourne's It's All About Me, received a Sporting Group 3, at the show on Long Island, with owner/handler/breeder, Steve Lane showing him.  Congratulations to Steve and Bonnie Lane of Hibourne!
