SSCGB Trial

First of all, Happy Birthday to Mike (see his picture at the top of this page)! He was Big Boy 9 on Friday!

Cosi and Dixie and I traveled to Maryland for the Shetland Sheepdog Club of Greater Baltimore trial. That club always runs a top-notch trial. It was a fun weekend, and Cosi and I were clicking. It was also a RyLadd time in that Cosi's brother, Trax, was there and Dixie's mother, Riddle, was there.

We got an elusive QQ on Friday. I was so thrilled because we had really been connected lately. I love that feeling. Another highlight of the weekend was seeing Miss Jordan and her Sheltie Maverick tear up the courses. She nailed the Time 2 Beat course on Sunday along with the Novice JWW course. I was ring crew for the Novice JWW class and saw dog after dog struggle, drop bars, and go off course. Jordan came to the line, aggressively ran her dog and came away with a 17 second time! The judge was so impressed that she called out, "Now *that's* how it's done!"
