We are finaly gettingt he teamwork together. We're moving up to excellent for both standard and jumpers for next weekend, check back to see the results.

Twister tried again for a second CD leg, and walked away a winner.  She is 2 for 2 for her CD, and improved by a whole 5 points from Friday. She worked her heart out, and was very happy and energetic in the ring.  Her score was a 185.5 and again she earned HS Rottweiler. Yeah Twister!
Stone earned the final leg he needed to earn his Rally Advanced title. He did so in fine fashion with an 89. He kept popping up on a station that requires him to move form position to position without standing in between...OH well, he again displayed his great heeling and enthusiasm for work! Thanks Stone for a GREAT weekend!

Stone was the only dog showing this day from my house, but got his second qualify score for his Rally Advanced title, with a beautiful score of 96. We had to repeat a station, and he went a little wild over the jump, but he was very energetic, and his heeling superb. We can't wait to get back in the Utility ring. Again, MANY compliment on his style, and attitude.
