had two days of Obedience and Rally at Thorson's Arena in
Hill, CA on November 18/19.
They were held in conjunction with PASA
Highlights of the weekend
Our trials last weekend were small, but
everyone enjoyed themselves.
highlight of our Obedience Trial was
when day of entry, Rocky the Golden
Retriever owned by Noelene Byers, went High Combined, High Scoring
Other Breed, and obtained the points needed to complete his OTCH 1!
We did not have
any dogs eligible for the Double High Combined award. Our
Obedience judges were Barbara Arine and Lora Cox (UA/B) for AM and Anne
Shope for PM.
The following day's Rally
trial was slightly
better attended. The Double High Combined ( dog with the High
Combined scores from both AM &
trials) award went to Cherie
Gessford & her Aussie, Hattie.
The all around winner was
Richard Anderson and his Aussies Calvin ( HIT & High Scoring
Aussie PM Obedience, HIT High Scoring Aussie Rally AM) and
Kate (HIT, High Scoring
Aussie PM Rally ). In Rally, both Calvin & Kate had
perfect 200 scores in the AM , and Kate earned another 200 in
the PM trial. Calvin’s HIT
Obedience score was a whopping 199.5! Our rally judges were
Anne Shope in the AM and Barbara Arine in the PM.
Our judges had a great
Shope said she would love to come back again some time,
Barbara Arine is always a favorite. And her
husband comes along and lends a hand whenever he can as a ring
Rick Anderson also helped a lot, helping set up the rings
both days & tear them down,setting rally courses, all
in addition to
running 2 dogs in a full slate of agility classes an Obedience
& Rally. I offered a package deal rate for those
entering all four trials or those entering High Combined in Obedience
Rally in AM & PM trials. This was to be a popular idea.
