1st time rally show tomorrow!

Well the wait is just about gone. Tomorrow is the day! Hoping.. everything goes well. Getting there early to get Lilly settled in as she gets a little crazy going to new places and wanting to meet and greet everyone . That's one of her downfalls, as well as being a bit distracted at first. She gets much better once she is settled and been there for a bit. I plan on watching most of the people ahead of me.. And try to stay calm.

Keep your fingers crossed for me! Lol

Good Luck! Most of all have fun. Walk the course and make sure you know what each sign is instructing you to do. Lastly, whatever happens the world won't end and you will still be taking your beloved Lilly home with you.

We did it! And we did it pretty good first place in our group! Score of 86. I talked to the judge after and he was extremely nice. Most of my points off were my fault with a tight leash. I think I didn't pay attention to how I was holding it and made it worse. Lilly did really good. We got there and I got her settled in, got the course map. Ran through it in my head first and then took her outside and did it there. Seemed to help because she did seem pretty focused by the time we went in the ring.

So here's the pic of my ribbon. I'm waiting for some pics from my trainer of us getting our ribbons. She had just missed us in the ring so no pics of us doing the run but was glad she got to at least be there for the awards.

I definitely think I'm going to do a show in December. Practice more and maybe get a higher score..or at least just get another leg.
