Trixie's 1st MX leg!!!

Trixie made her debut in Exc B Std at today's Skyline Agility Club trial and qualified for her 1st MX or Master Agility standard leg!  Her time was under the standard course time and she also earned 5 MACH points!  To complete an MX titles, the dog needs to earn 10 qualifying legs. You can see the AKC agility rules here, which also explain the different AKC agility titles.  We have been super busy with Jam's pups, work, vacations and that big storm, Hurricane Sandy, which knocked our power out for 17 days, so poor Trixie has not been to an agility trial since July in North Carolina where she won Highest Scoring Weimaraner with her double Q at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club Agility trial.  We also have not been training and I am super proud of how much she has retained.

We also ran in Exc A JWW (Jumpers with Weaves) as the first run of the day.  No qualifying score due to a handler error causing a refusal and missed weaves.  I was thrilled with how much drive and enthusiasm she has and loved seeing her fly over the jumps.
