UCDX Magic

Magic earned his UCDX this weekend at the MMBC trial. Although its been a long time coming, and this was not the first attempts, this weekend Magic went 3 for 3 attempts earning his UCDX. And although the scores were not great, he also placed first twice and second the other time.  He also ran 4 rally courses and qualified all of them as well, with scores ranging from 93 to a 99. Love my boy.

Grace on the other hand was 1 for 2 in rally and 0 for 2 in novice.  Saturday was the better day, with the q and a really close to qualifying run in Novice.  I did have to give a second command to get her over the jump in the recall, so that was our NQ but everything else while not perfect by any stretch, were acceptable.  Sunday though she kind of had a meltdown. In Rally she was just plain goofy, rooing and barking nonstop and dancing around everywhere but in heel position. In Novice she just stopped and sniffed and general ignored me. So we have some work to do, but I was not at all disapointed with her. I knew going in that this was a practice run and really, I got better than I expected. Her stays were perfect. That alone had me grinning, as stays are really hard for my girl.  Good Girl Grace.

Overall a really good weekend. Grace is a red girl -- so, you know what that means but magic made up for her silliness. Good boy!
