Well thats another show wasted! I tell you, Cornwall is an AWFUL long way to go, to miss the sit position!!!!!! Grrr!!! And it was totally, 100% my fault she missed it. I got so flipping het up about the steward about to say 'it', that I stopped walking straight, gave Tia the wrong signal and command, and to top it off said it in a sap-like tone, so she never really had a chance to get it right in the first place. The second position was the stand, so I did a sit, and this time got everything right and she sat down like a rocket. Her heelwork was stunning, she felt so balanced and worked so closely, she is a lot stronger than last year. I reckon by May, she'll be doing full rounds again!
As an aside, Ember-sheltie enjoyed the trip, and very much liked the B+B lady as she gave her a Schmako, much to Ember's delight. We are down again this coming weekend from Friday to probs Monday, for agility this time, I'm really looking forward to it.
