NADAC weekend

Decided to enter the boys in a NADAC trial this weekend since it is one of the few trials left in this area where we can still run on dirt!

I limited Lance on his runs since he just received his chiropractic adjustment to "zero him out" before the obedience championships in two weeks.  Mainly entered in the non-contact classes.  He also hasn't really had much agility practice at all in the last 2 months and during his last practice 2 weeks ago it showed.  Quite off in the teamwork department.
That unfortunately continued at this trial, especially on Saturday.  Lance was wide on several turns, doing some "window shopping" of obstacles but mainly refraining himself from actually taking off courses, and just a bit slower in general.  Sunday was MUCH better and he was closer to running full speed as well.
We did manage to qualify 5 out of 7 runs.  The only 2 NQs being chances which of course is what we have left for the NATCH.

Vito was having an awesome trial.  Happy, screaming Toller on the start lines.  And Vito broke 3 personal records for SPEED!!!!  On Saturday Vito turned in his fastest jumpers run ever at 5.4YPS, on Sunday he had his fastest tunnelers at 6.4YPS, and his fastest regular run at 5.6YPS.  Quite likely the judge was a little different in her measuring, but either way Trial Vito was certainly getting closer to practice speed.  I even did 3 rear crosses over the weekend and on 2 of the 3 Vito didn't lose any momentum!  On one he didn't seem to read it well and I was a little late.

So sorry it has taken me so long to catch up, but I finally have! I'm so glad things are going well and I can't wait to read all about your fun adventures for 2014. :D

P.S. Congrats on the new house and on Lance's high point score! So exciting. I'm sure I missed other things, but I did read all the posts. :)
